Hi Denny and Diane,

One question. When is the end of horse fly season? Should I wait until Dec to head south so they all freeze?


The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.

How did that taste?

We were usually travelling with 20-30 at a time in the cockpit with us during May. By far the worst part of the trip through GA.

We've been keys to little river the last two years. Skipped Georgia. Only 30 hrs from Charleston to Jax. We touched bottom twice, both times my fault. I've taken to taking the outside between canaveral and Palm beach. Popping in at Ft pierce and Stuart for anchorages. The fishing in this area is just too good to miss. We loaded up on tuna, wahoo, kingfish, barracuda and mackeral trolling a single spoon.

tasted like chicken, just had to ignore the wings. I kept a fly swatter at the helm, it did help the boredom
