Key West Bonefish (And Some Edible Stuff, Too)

I never turn down a chance to jump on the bow of my buddy Capt. Mike Bartlett's skiff for a few days.  The clouds followed me down there but we avoided the rain and caught a decent amount of fish.  Best of all, it was great to see perfectly clear water again, which is the total opposite of our summer conditions here on Pine Island. 

Our one flat calm morning.

A four pounder on my first cast.

Key West bones are plentiful and voracious.
Almost legal black grouper.
Much smaller black grouper, we caught a lot of these.
Beautiful red grouper.
Dinner.  Mutton snapper taste even better than they look.
