The holidays are a great time to go fishing with family.

Christmas is a wonderful opportunity to share time with your family on our beautiful waters. It’s such a special time to be alive and sharing with friends old and new.

We are so blessed to enjoy our mild climate. Yes, we do have to work harder to earn enough to keep the bills paid, but at least we don’t have to shovel snow for months! Of course, lots of folks want to live here our weather has been as much as 70 degrees warmer than up north. Florida is becoming huge; we have the fourth largest population in the nation and are going to beat New York for third very soon. With the increase in people, there are challenges we face: Habitat protection, pollution, drinking water, infrastructure, housing. Personally, I’ve meet many wonderful folks through my charters and other encounters. Most of our neighbors are happy people, but some of the special ones can be challenging — especially if you are slightly opinionated like me. I do wear my thoughts on my shirtsleeves. I criticize others and welcome constructive criticism; it can help us all learn and grow.
