Back for supper

Back in camp as the day grows long. Preparations for supper along with sharing fishing lies are the tasks at hand. I wish I had shots of supper. It was a FEAST thanks to Packrat, Bayport Bob, Terp, DaveR and others.
Waiting for action

Another beautiful sunset looking southeast. In the distance is the bridge leading to Ft. DeSoto park. Beyond that lies the Sunshine Skyway.
Big T and friend

Here is Big T, also the official *PICO greeter, with a fine gator trout.

The one that didn't

Mike I is holding up another huge trout. Sadly, moments before it was accompanied by a fat 28" snook. The makeshift stringer let go. The snook realized it was free and slowly swam away. A foot chase ensued. No luck.
The Legend and a nice red

DaveR hiding out with a nice slot red. It was later donated to Packrat in honor of his chef duties and offering his skiff for garbage detail.
Johnster and his red

The man behind the gathering. Johnster, limey that he is invited another mate of his from the homeland, Mark, and wanted to show off the amazing Florida fishing and outdoors. Nice red John.
