Today I’m up in Destin Florida fishing with some friends. Jay, John, Rich, Tommy, and Phil. Yes the boat was loaded. The first day was a bit slow but today we say thirteen fish cruising the beach in Jay’s tower boat.
The water up here is emerald green, I guess that’s why they call it a the emerald cost. Unfortunately it has been pretty crowded so the water just didn’t show that well.
One of the coolest thing we encounter is was a Sunfish. It was a baby at about 100lbs but usually these things are way off shore so it was treat to see him just a couple hundred yards off the beach. He was curious and friendly. He came right up to the boat and Rich was actually able to grab one for a photo before he took off.
These guys get pretty big.. I think there was one that was caught that weigh over 3500 lbs.!
This one we saw was a baby but I hear they average about 2,000lbs.
Here are a few photos I manage to edit on my laptop. Hopefully it’s not too dark like last time.
