My friend Dave has been on a roll lately. For one thing the red tide has dialed back on the Gulf side of Florida. Which is great news. Red tide has been a persistent problem for several years from Tampa south to Naples. Between that and the blue-green algae, water quality has sucked. But Dave has been hanging there and fishing as always.
Recently he got himself a brand new motor – a Suzuki 25. Yeah he got a lot of hours out of the old mill, but it was ready to retire. This new one is much more fuel efficient and dependable, allowing him to travel farther in his search for reds. And that new motor just took him to a new redfish. Its a honker. Great going Dave!
