      I was in Islamorada this weekend with some buddies. Here is a video of deep dropping for Tilefish in 650 feet of water with three pounds of lead. There may be some adult language.

      Lucky you. I was once subjected to a work assignment in FL in Jan & Feb. The ole rancher plowed me out and I made it to the airport in Colorado Springs. What suffering on that work gig. Got to go fishing in the keys. It would have been a success if I had not caught any fish. Most of the grouper were just undersized. I remember dropping one back into the water, and a shark (maybe 6 ft long) streaked from under the boat and took my fish off for lunch. Sure was a great break from the long winters in La Veta, CO.

      My Uncle ( on my mother’s side) used to have a house there we would travel down and go bonefishing. Love the Keys especially Islamorada.
      When I was stationed in South Fla ( Ft Lauderdale) used to take the wife and kids to Anne’s Beach as much as I could. Or go fishing just outside Port Of Miami, best times was surf fishing for pompano.
      Thanks for sharing the post.

      When we had friends living in the keys we would go visit them for a couple of weeks every year. I would do my fishing with a speargun. It is a great place to relax.

      We are going to try for a return trip this fall but hunting season may get in the way.
