More dolphin today and
we found this abandoned Cuban raft.
How would you like to make a 90mile ocean crossing on this??
The red stickers are from the US Coast Guard. Apparently they found the raft on Nov. 19th.
Hopefully the people were all ok
UPDATE: I received an email from the Coast Guard. All the passengers were taken off the raft safely on Nov. 19th

Two Trips Today
and fishing was great both trips!
Plenty of dolphin and a Skip Jack Tuna in the afternoon
And we got a pretty good view of a US Submarine that has been
operating in the Key West waters for the last week or so
Non-stop action in the morning!
We saw this Leatherback Turtle on the way in. Leather Backs are uncommon.
I probably see 2-4 per year. It’s hard to tell without anything to reference it’s size,
but this one is about 4-5ft long and probably around 400lbs.
They can get much larger

Much Better Everything Today!
The weather was perfect and the fishing was excellent!

It was worth the run!
