    As many of you know this past year has been pretty tough on my parents and their health. Well my Dad (CaptainSid) was finally feeling well enough to do a little fishing.

    We headed off to Sebastian Inlet knowing that Snook season had just ended so figured the Jetty would be empty of fisherman.

    Stopped by Whitey's for some bait (large live shrimp) and then went to the end of the Jetty.

    Set up our gear and the Captain lovingly showed me that he is still the master and I am but his lowly student.

    Seriously don't know what was more fun, the fishing and catching or just spending time with my Dad.

    Very good to see you guys got out there. Wish I could have joined you but life is getting in the way to much lately. Hunting season has been different this year and very demanding. I would like to plan a trip soon. Great job Sid showing up the kid.

    Those are some toad Redfish, that's for sharing. Redfish are probably the main east coast fish I miss fishing for here on the west coast.

    Thanks Guys. Many of you have heard stories about my Dad, Brother and I on the water an fishing. My Dad took us all the time when we were kids teaching us how to fish and how to care for our environment and the ecosystem and the same time and let us know they were indeed tied together and should be an integral part of one another.

    On this trip we did a lot of remembering of my little brother who had forgotten more about fishing before his death than I have ever known and the wonderful times we had shared on the water.

    I look forward to many more enjoyable trips with my Dad and will try to start doing a better job of posting report here. Don't want ya all to think pineapple is the only one out here fishing heheehe.

    Joe, Sebastian Inlet holds some very big fish, Snook and Redfish are pretty common year round although this cold snap has hurt the Snook fishing. Two nights ago a buddy of mine landed a 6' Tarpon from the Jetty as well. The variety is good as well although I am still waiting on a flounder to hit my hook. Let me know if you ever get over this way and we will go - BTW - just got in 2 cases of shirts and hats, beanies and visors should not be far behind.

    Check out these guys who went shark fishing and caught a 74" BlackTip Shark - Looks like something else came up and tried to have it for dinner, check out the chunk out of it's tail.

    Kinda like you - You need bring nothing as I have plenty but with that said. Rod and reel as I will bring live well and can make us lots of bucktails for us to use too. Windcheaters and 2 & 3 oz. spoons are good to have as well. I like 3/0 hooks and split shots up to 3oz egg sinkers for bait fishing.

    My nephew is coming out from California on Thursday, we will fish a few times while he is here. Will probably put the camper on the truck so we can eat, drink, sleep fish and be merry :)

    Yes I have to start posting my reports again, I slacked off pretty bad.

    Might get in a trip before the end of the year and another right after it starts so stay tuned.
