Dave R. (photographer), Dave W. Ed C. & Al M. on a dive trip to Key Largo, Nov 14, 2009
This guy just bought a new boat and decided to take her for the maiden voyage.

This was his first boat and he wasn't quite sure of the exact 'Standard Operating Procedures' for launching it off a ramp, but figured it couldn't be too hard.

He consulted his local boat dealer for advice, they just said "don't let the trailer get too deep when you  launch the boat".

Well, he didn't know what they meant by that as he could barely get the trailer in the water at all! Anyhow, here's a picture.
This sail was caught while grouper fishing near the California wreck aboard Joe Cafferelli"s boat. 


Here is a picture of Frank Renkel's latest grouper catch!
Hope he will be able to catch a few of those guys on the Halfway to Mexico trip.

Mike, Ed, and AL,
Just wanted to make sure you guys were aware of the 36in. Red Fish I caught on October 13, 2009.  I submitted on MSFC website for leaderboard and FOM, but as my lack of computer skills may not have done correctly.... anyway I thought I would send picture and maybe you guys can take from here. 
Thanks for all you guys do,
Allan Bristow

August 2009

Bryan and I were fishing on Andrea B II out about 10 miles in Gulf from Caxambus Pass.  We used cut bait caught with my sabiki line.  We kept 4 "Keeper" Red Groupers  ranging from 22" to 25 1/2", and released another 6 to 7 "Keeper" Red Groupers. It was "drop and jerk" for many more undersize groupers.  We also caught some nice size Lane Snappers (to about 14") and Grunts.  No sharks... we were looking, but none to be found in that area! However, we had a great day on "Gulf Fishing" with the Marco Sports Fishing Club.

Kingfish tournament April 2009
I picked up my boat at Caxambus ramp at 9:30 this morning.  The service man (Randy from Intercostal) said I should use to boat so he could re-check the filter for water in the fuel.  Soooo ... I went home & Bryan and I grabbed our poles, etc. to go fishing and started out the pass at 10:30 am.  Bryan forgot the squid, so we had NO bait.  We went out to about the 9 mile area and used sabiki rigs to get small fish for cut bait. We drift when we fish.  To make a long story short.  We got a bunch of snappers and then I got a nice 27" Red Grouper .... we couldn't go home until Bryan caught a 20" Red Grouper!  Anyway, no King fish today, but we had a short, but fun day. (Pictures attached)

Last Monday (4/6) Bryan, his son Bing and I were on my boat (23' Grady White) fishing about 9 miles out in Gulf west of Caxambus Pass on Marco.  We were on a drift using cut bait.  We caught a nice amount of Lane Snappers and three "Keeper" Red Groupers.  We got back to Marco as the wind was really picking up.  It was a fun day.

Dave Rasmussen, Al Musico, Rob Reiley and Ed Crane diving for lobsters in the Florida Keys.

We caught lots of lobsters, but, alas, they were all too small and had to be thrown back.

We did however, catch a KEEPER Mermaid, about 62 inches long and 105 pounds.  See pictures at left.
