If you are around Tampa in 2 weeks. March 5th to the 7th, the Tampa fairgrounds will host The best outdoor show in the West Coast of Florida.
If you only have to pick one show to attend you should go to this one.
With everyone having some type of blog these days you might want to try this website I stumbled upon today.
It checks your blog for just about everything.
It’s called is “my blog working.com”
Just put in your URL and it there you have it.
Tomorrow I will be heading to do some shooting of Maverick’s new redesign HPX-T 2010 in the Everglades with Capt. Benny Blanco. It has the new Yamaha 70hp 4 stroke on it. Apparently that is like the rave in the small motor world.
Hopefully I can get my laptop on the network after wards to get you some pics from the shoot.
Went fishing today and braved the winds but the fishing was poor. The house project was getting on my nerves and I needed to get out. It sure did feel good to hang out with some buddies, have a few millers and really enjoy the day. My friend Jon has a big Eagle’s nest by his house so I decided to see if the big bird was there; to my luck he was in. I got some really neat photos but the bird was just to far and the pics don’t fill the frame like I had hoped. This is a shot as it went by for a close up

I bought my East Cape Caimen in 2008. The boat has only 105 hours on it the 1.5 years I’ve owned her. The 100 hour service was done at 80 hours. Out of all the skiffs I’ve been in through out the year the ECC Caimen is the best riding, driest skiff I have ever ridden in, in this price range. I use to fish like crazy a couple years a go but now I’m doing more shooting videos and photos than I actually fish. The Caimen is an awesome fishing machine but it lacks storage that I need. I got so much gear I carry with me now that a skiff is no longer practical to own. So today I am putting her up for sale. I wanted to put it on Saltyshores for a couple days first before I put it on other websites hoping she will go to someone that fishes her more than I.
I spoke to Kevin over ECC a couple weeks a go about selling her. I was glad to hear that ECC will extend the warranty to the new owners no problem. Go check out their forum, they have a great family of skiff owners there.
The boat has been garage kept the entire time. It has seen the waters of Tampa bay all the way to the Keys. It has gone deep in the everglades to places that’s not even on the charts. From redfish, snook, bonefish to 100lb Tarpon in Miami she has seen it. I hope the fishing Mojo go with her.

Well it never fails that someone catches an oddity of a fish species that normally one doesn’t see in our TampaBay waters. Spencer Goodwin of the HCKAClub posted a quick report of his INCREDIBLE catch while kayak fishing off the waters of TampaBay.
