6/6/13-6/9/13: Sarasota Devastations- The trip to speaketh not of

Fishy Jackson, EsQuire P, Uncle Poseidon
Location: Sarasota, Fl

What is, was not.  Words can’t describe what isn’t, for what was cannot be known since it may not have been.  Furthermore…..there is no more.

Tough conditions on the seas in addition to an unimaginable string of unfortunate events led to an utter lack of glorious achievements.  The tropical storm left the waters looking Long Island Sound-ish with the lack of visibility, and the offshore waters choppy with large swells thanks to the strong SW winds.  The Great Uncle of all Sea Inhabitants Uncle Poseidon & the self-knighted Esquire P got their first taste of Gulf variety action on the bay at least, though the few encounters with large sea animals resulted in the fish emerging victorious.

Did the Honorable Lord Fishy Jackon’s brand new glorious Penn Battle 3000 combo rod get chopped up in the engine in an insane fluke occurance the day after it was purchased? Perhaps.  Did the anchor get stuck on a reef offshore, leaving no choice but to cut the rope?  It is possible this may have taken place.  Did the boat rental people display a disgraceful level of incompetance by giving the Squad less than adequate boats with non-functioning live wells and such?  Again, this potentially may have been the case.  One cannot be sure… for what is was not, and what will be never was…

Creatures Caught: Lizardfish, Hardhead Catfish, Spottail Pinfish, Pinfish, Pigfish, White Grunt, Tomtate Grunt, Mangrove Snapper, Bighead Sea Robin, Threadfin Herring, Gulf kingfish, Gulf Flounder, Lane Snapper
