    I went down to Florida with my oldest son to visit my dad. It went well and we went fishing 2 out of the 3 days. The 1st day we went out to the Gulf on his boat to a manmade reef. My son cuaght a couple snappers and I caught a few snapper and a Spanish Mackeral. My Spanish got cut in half by a barracuda. I was pretty upset about that but thats how it goes sometimes. The gulf got pretty rough so we headed in and fished a bridge that was pretty good fishing. We caught some more snapper at the bridge and my son Jesse caught a 3 lb Jack creval. We went to the beach the next day and just hung around for awhile and I collected some shells for my wife. On the 3rd day we went fishing at a pier where we caught more snapper and tried but failed to hook some snook. We left Monday just in front of the tropical storm and made it home in about 7 hours. Great weekend but very busy.
