Chris & I got up at 430am to go fishing over in Hernando County on an inshore charter!!! (Chris looks so enthused to be taking pictures @ 5am doesn’t he?—he loves me!)… So we went over to Hernando and went fishing with Capt. Joel (fishdaddycharters.com)! We went to the flats and I caught 2 catfish. No Reds! I REALLY wanted to catch a Red, but of course I know that just bc I want to doesn’t mean i’m going to! If that were the case i’d have caught alot more fish in my life then I have! So after fishing the flats for a while we went out deeper to fish for sharks and whatever else would bite.
I don’t know how far out we were, probably 7 miles and it was only 8 feet deep. You couldn’t see land, but you could see the bottom. We caught a bunch of sharks, which you know I don’t mind since I love love sharks!! They are such a fun fight! and they are cute! Did you know if you lay a shark on its back it will go to sleep? I had heard this but I wasn’t sure if it was for sharks or gators?…it works for sharks, not sure if it works for gators…. We also caught some seabass, lady fish, and some trout. Chris caught a big 23.5 inch trout! we kept it, and we caught one other keeper trout. We brought them home and we had them for dinner tonight! They were delish!
>>>Me “petting” the shark. The feel like sand paper on their head and back, and their belly is really smooth!
