Going through some of my photos today from the past year it brought back the memories of all the good times had while on the water kayak fishing and exploring in the Everglades. Whether by myself, with friends or with clients I can't think of ever having a bad day. Catching and seeing people catch some nice fish is the greatest but also as most would agree just being out in the wilderness of the Everglades has been real rewarding in itself.
Speaking of fish, Looking through my photos of fish I caught this year I think my greatest achievement was catching a few nice larger snook. This area is known for the snook fishing and fishing out of a kayak for snook and actually getting a bigger one in the kayak can be pretty challenging. Sometimes luck plays a big part. Using light to medium gear which most fisherman use around here I would say the odds are less than 50% in getting the fish into the boat. I've seen it happen time and time again to a lot of people, myself included getting "spanked" by a big snook. Anyways, here's a few pictures of snook I caught over the last year and "Happy New Year!"
