We finally got a good day to go fishing.

Barry was out in the canal next door...looking for breakfast.

It was one of those days when the winds were nonexistant...

...making the water as still as a mirror.

Wayne had brought along the casting net...

...and succeeded in bagging some pinfish for bait. Later on he casted a pinfish at a very large barracuda, but the cuda turned up his nose at it and lit out for other parts.

It was Saturday and as it was also the first decent fishing day in a while...

...we expected there to be a ton of boats out...but only two boats came near us the whole time we were out there.

The fishing today was not exactly spectacular...

...we caught a bunch of crevale jacks at that place where they seem always to hang out...I got a couple on the fly rod.

But we had about an hour of excitement...

...when we stumbled onto about a dozen permit [fish] including at least one that was huge.

I got a couple of shots at them with a crab fly on the fly rod...

...but no hookups. We'll find those fish again another day.
