The wind was still cranking 16 kt gusts Friday morning, so we waited it out and...believe it or not...it dropped to practically nothing. So the Shoo-Fly Fishing Crew went fishing.

MIchael's favorite thing to do on the boat is to steer it, so he climbed up with me and took over the helm.

He ran the boat at about 25 mph for 4 miles over to the nearest key, successfully dodging all the crab trap buoys along the way.

...and jacks...

...and jacks.

But we also caught grouper and ladyfish and saw rays, sharks, turtles, and a sawfish...and...

...a pod of dolphins with some juveniles in the group.

Capt. Wayne was also out on the water.

Ms. Caroline took this photo which shows not only the boat wake as we returned to the dock, but also how flat and mirror-like was the water.
