Caught in a afternoon thunder storm, Tarpon fishing, Bohemian 17 skiff

June 27th 2010

Today I fishing with Richard and Eric. We saw lots of Tarpon but we couldn’t get any them to eat. By 1030am we took a lunch break at 5 guys burgers(more on this later) We then made the drive down to Sarasota to check out a new revolutionary skiff designer called the Bohemian 17 Skiff. Richard took some photos of this thing earlier last week. I talked the builder and shot a little videos so you guys could see the lines better. I will be putting the clip together tomorrow.

The afternoon I fish with Joe Welborne of Carbon marine and his 2 kids. We jump 3 tarpon but did not landed any. The highlight of the day cam when it was time to go home. I dropped Joe before making the run home. I faced with a massive thunderstorm. I made it across alive but I was definitely scared out there. There were lightning all around me, 4′ seas coming in with winds gusting to 30mph. My Canyon bay did fine in the weather but there’s nothing it can do about the lightning that was all around me. I definitely would not want to be caught in something like that very often . Yikes!

I did carry my Kodak Playsport video camera with me today and got a nice little video clip for you guys to enjoy the storm images.

Since we didn’t land a tarpon today there wasn’t much photo taking to be done.
