Here’s one last post about our day in the Everglades. I just want to document who caught the biggest fish so there can be no denying it at later family get -togethers!
This is, Kenny, Captain Catfish! Apparently, the first one to hook a catfish (which seem to be plenteous and not so great for eating), becomes the Captain. Kenny held the title from his last trip out and began our outing with it in tact.
This is Wesley freeing a Ladyfish. We kept a couple of Ladyfish and added them to our bait of shrimp.
Wally, getting serious about fishing.
My first fish… a pretty nice trout! Wally also caught a trout.
This is my trout next to Kenny’s Jack. We took this pic just for fun. This Jack was too small but they are a fun game fish to catch. Later in the day we found a spot among the Mangroves where the guys enjoyed reeling them!
This guy is a Needlefish.
This is my Red Fish. Can you believe it…he wasn’t big enough to keep!
This is Becky’s Red Fish…almost as big as she is! Hers was a keeper.
And Kenny also caught a Red fish that was 20” long!
This is Jeff, describing to us how sharp the teeth of a Mackerel are! Wesley and I each caught a Mackerel.
After helping us with our fishing rods and bait and releasing fish all day…Jeff finally did a little fishing of his own. And he reeled in this lovely branch!
This is a well known fish, a Catfish. We had many all day. Wesley caught the largest and the most.
Oh, and what is this out in the middle of the Everglades? I called it “Relief!” We actually sat on the dock here and had lunch. Except for Wesley. Here he took the title “Captain Catfish” from Kenny. He reeled in fish after fish! Fifteen, mostly catfish and a few Jack!
And this is Wally, catching some z-z-z’s!
