Islamorada to Flamingo

Capt. Steven Tejera picked my wife and me up at the back steps of the Mitchell’s Key Villa in Islamorada, (neat place, by the way), and promptly set out for the 45 minute ride across Florida bay to Flamingo. At my request, the morning was set aside for Tarpon fishing but, unfortunately, the tarpon didn’t get the memo. Or maybe they did, depending on your perspective. By the afternoon,we ended up on a flat infested with trout and redfish with a few nice snook.
The wind had picked up considerably and I was dreading the ride back. I run a Maverick HPX-T back home in Texas and I have been in some rough chop, but I can tell you that Capt. Tejera’s Dolphin 16 ran considerably smoother than my Maverick. I was very impressed. Oh, and by the way, Steven does things in this boat that I would have never thought possible. The kid knows how to handle a boat.
Thanks for a great trip Steven!
