Captain’s Blog – May 23, 2010 – Lifelong friends, Sandy Joren and Jay French, share a passion for music, fishing and everything else important in life.
They also shared a Florida Keys vacation getaway to Hawks Cay Resort. Sandy and Jay sneaked away from the ladies for some fishing with SeaSquared Charters.
Due to the high winds and heavy seas, I chose to fish the friendlier bay waters. We hit a couple of my favorite wrecks in 8 to 10 feet of water.
In between talking, singing and laughing (and a couple of adult beverages), the guys caught a whole bunch of mangrove, mutton and yellowtail snapper, hogfish and porgies. A few short grouper were released.
Sandy and Jay spent much of their youth playing in a band together. Sandy continues to entertain with the Bob Lanza Blues Band. Check them out playing at Kenny’s Castaways, a long-revered venue in Greenwich Village:
I don’t normally include customer comments in these blog posts, but I’m making an exception for this one.
Sandy: “Awesome trip. I’ve found my captain in the Keys.”
Jay: “What at trip! I have never fished before where every cast caught a fish! Unbelievable!!! Thanks!!”
See you guys next time!
