Great day with great friends!
On board for Day 2 of Lobster Mini Season 2011 were our friends, Michelle Franklin, Johnny Maddox, Skip and Deb Bradshaw, Chris Babiana, my deckhand, Jason Bell, and his brother, Alex.
We first headed for my A-Number One spot where we caught our limit yesterday only to have another boat get there just seconds before us. Oh well. Move on.
We hit a few more spots and had 25 good size bugs in the live well by noon.
Plenty for a feast expertly prepared for us by Skip and Deb at the dock next to their schooner, the Pirate’s Lady.
Jason also shot a couple of lionfish. If you’re not aware, lionfish are a non-native species that has invaded the Florida Keys waters, threatening the balance of the delicate coral ecosystem. There is a large and growing effort to eradicate the lionfish, and REEF hosts Lionfish Derbies to collect as many fish as possible.
