thanks, tatt. we went backwater one day for mangrove snappers, and then went out another day deep sea fishing for shark, sheepshead, blue runners, and spanish mackerel. the mackerel were hitting like crazy. we hooked up a monster bull shark that the captain estimated around 10 feet or so before it snapped a 300lb. steel leader!
i'm kinda glad we didn't bring it up to the boat, to be honest.
after the trip, the captain cleaned about 5 pounds of spanish mackerel for us which we took to a local restaurant to cook up for us. it was delicious.
we even rented a coupla rods and went surfcasting right outside the hotel every day. we caught a load of ladyfish, crevalle jacks, redfish, amber jacks, ballyhoo, and whitefish. it was really a great trip, which is why we're really considering moving. the problem's gonna be trying to find a six figure salary in paradise...
