    Had a great time in Florida. Chartered a 40' w dual Cat diesels to go 26 mi out. No cats, but we caught shark, king mackerel, triggerfish, red snapper, vermillion snapper, and bonita. Used the bonita for shark bait from the surf but had no luck. Took an inshore trip & caught whiting and lots of silver trout. Must have 500 lb of sand in my truck & camper. Daytime temps in the mid-70's & we're ready to go again! I've had enough winter already!

    I did some salt fishing while on vacation in FL last week, too (St. George Island). On the bay side, I caught some Speckled Trout, croakers, pinfish, pigfish, black drum (what, no redfish!?), Spanish Mackerel, and ONE SALTWATER CATFISH!! WOOHOO!

    Oh, and Vince will love this. I was using shrimp. :)
