    My lil buddy has had some "good catches" lately.
    We go bream fishing in the community pond a couple times a week. He is pretty proficient at reeling em in. The other day he hooked something that just kept running. He fought it like a champ and then I dragged it to shore. After which, he sat down and said. . . "Im tired. It almost broke my arm". LOL! He gave a weary thumbs up next to his trophy carp. (If there is such thing!)

    A few days later we went on a boat ride. As always I brought a couple fishing rods... just in case. I saw a bunch of birds working over a school of bonito and skip jack. And so he caught his first off shore ocean fish!

    Lol...bro, you ever had canned mullet? It'll make you slap your neighbors grandma. It'll make you happier than a fat boy holding a buttered biscuit.

    Or, fry em up like 7_5 said till the yellow fat starts cooking out...wow.

    Caught 22 more this afternoon. Gonna hit em again tomorrow afternoon.

    Interesting story today. Was about 60-70 yds north of my boat (upwind) wading with a few on the stringer. Worked my way back to the boat to find an 8ft bay lizard parked about 20 yards off the bow downwind in a couple feet of water. I know he smelled those mullet and was looking for a fish dinner. I'm sure glad he didn't get between me and the boat.

    I took a couple pics...will post one tomorrow after I get them up on photobucket.

    Alright finally snuck away from work. Came to Marathon yesterday with the guys and weve speared 5 grouper, 5 nice hogfish and 55 lobster.

    Will hit it again in the am then take the catch to Sharkeys pub for them to cook out game meal.

    We did another limit of bugs before lunch and watched GA/LSU and UF/UK while someone else cooked for us!

    Great weekend trip.

    Absolutely no one on the waters around 7 mile this time of year.
