It was wonderful to get away for a few days but I’m glad to be back home.
The Florida Keys are a great place to visit but too crowded for me. I’m happy to call my Venice to Boca Grande stomping ground home. It sounds like I missed some rain and that there are still plenty of fish around to play with when you are ready. School starts locally next Monday so get the kids out now if you can. I enjoy the family trips but with school starting there will be even less boaters next week. It’s hot so I recommend early trips.
Our waters are still clear mostly and fish are abundant. This bright moon is waning now so I expect even better action as it gets darker next week. We still have snapper and trout to eat. Spanish should show up very soon. Tarpon are around if you have the patience to hunt them down. Snook are fun for catch and release plus some redfish are showing up. Outside we still have the barracudas and other species depending on winds.
Let’s go fishin’ soon. I’m ready. Captain Van Hubbard.
