Default Fishing in the Florida Keys

Spent the last four days with my friend who winters in the Florida Keys. The hope was to catch a Tarpon, Bonefish or Permit. We fished 2 full days and covered about 40 miles of water and saw a total of 11 Permit, 0 Bonefish, 9 Barracuda and 0 Tarpon. Water temps in the low sixties have really slowed the fishing.

On the good side, the weather improved, The E-30 and 12-60mm lens continues to be a great combo in capturing images in harsh sun conditions with no blowouts.

Here are a couple of shots of my friend who, at the age of 71 continues to pole me around all day in his flats skiff. Note the sweatshirt and long pants. It was cold on the water.

I've put together a small gallery of images taken, while in Florida. For those who may have some interest, here is a link:

Enjoyed your galley zig. But I see shots of areas that I'm familiar with and there is not a soul in sight. Since I know that usually a lot of people are walking around there, I assume you took those probably about 5am when normal people were still asleep!! LOL!

Hi Steven,
Yes, some were taken early in the morning. But most of the images are the result of Photoshop
