    Default Been absent at sea

    I know I know ,where has ketchn been,wonder what happened to him ?
    Well we were off to visit the sunshine state and do the rounds and one stop in particular involved me heading out on my party boat trip out of Destin .
    Sure is a fun group of folks operating the Swoop party boats . I love going out with them on a run and it brings back memories of myself and my grandpa doing it back when I was a teenager .
    We of course bottom fish and drag up all kinds of critters . I am not sure exactly what all came in this trip but to be sure I was ketchn all sorts of fish . They target mingo snapper aka vermillion snapper on wrecks and rock piles and ridges in around 200 feet of water .
    Got my big rig broke off up real high above the leader by a large something when I dropped a 12 inch live bait .
    My trip started out real early as I like to get a good spot on the boat and as I typically do I suggested that some live bait might be nice to bring along . Well the first mate said yep and if a guy had a light rod he could ketch all we need right here off the dock .
    Silly thing to say to me of course I said I will be right back in a second as I have such a rod in my backseat .
    So I stood there and whacked all sorts of small bait size fish and loaded up a 5 galoon with pinfish and such . Heck I even got a baby redfish on my crappie jig as a bonus waiting around for our departure .
    The trip yielded best I could tell, trigger fish , red snapper , porgy , mingo snapper , sharks , amber jack , bonito , hogfish , ruby reds , almaco jacks and even a remora . I am pretty sure the list is not complete but at the same time thats just what I saw up on the bow end where I was perched .
    Anyway here are a few photos and I gave my fish up to some folks that wanted them to feed a gathering they had with them along with a recipe on fish tacos
    was a simply beautiful day and adventure and to be sure I will return when I get a chance

    on a side note : Swoop fishing charters is the name of the party boat operation I go out on and these guys are quite good at what they do and its a really great family friendly ,kids ,women and dads welcome type of venue .
    These guys make sure everyone has a good time and ketch fish and do it at a reasonable wallet friendly rate as well .
    you might look them up if you visit the Destin area of Florida and want to go try some deep water party boat action .
    and this here young fella was standing beside me and whipping them mingo snapper pretty good btw
