Living the Dream - again

Last weekend my Father and his wife Christine came down to the Keys for the long Christmas holiday weekend, and on one of the days we went fishing again with Dream Catcher Charters out of Key West.

Once again they were able to put us on plenty of fish, not to mention secure a perfect day of weather for us. I caught my first grouper and my first (of many) porgy, as well as plenty of snappers - but this trip was about Christine, and the nice lemon shark she pulled in.

Capt. Dave took care of everything. In fact he caught the blue runner for bait, and knew that it would catch us a shark. He was right, and it didn't take long before the rod was bent.

Once she had the shark hooked, she spent the next 15 minutes walking around the boat following and fighting it with all she had. Finally it tired and she reeled it in - the first shark she ever caught.

Capt. Dave does a quick and safe release of the worn out Lemon shark.

Living the dream.
