TURN YOUR CLOCKS BACK ON SATURDAY NIGHT!!!
BRRRRRRRRRRR … I know I am in Florida but what the Heck is going on?? Not to worry though, each day our temperatures are rising, but our lows are staying in the 50′s. (Makes me feel like I am back in southern California with the cool nights) We will have winds from the north all weekend at 10 to 15 knots and the seas will be getting up to 10 feet as the weekend progresses. Probably not a wise idea to be crossing to the Bahamas this weekend. Hang out at the Marina instead.
In last weeks newsletter I told you what I learned about using pin fish as bait. This week I am sure the fish were hiding under anything they could to keep warm. I did have a great weekend though. For all you golfing enthusiasts; I went to the Honda Classic in West Palm. As much as I enjoy golfing I had never been to a real tournament. They make it look so easy, step up to the ball, plant your feet, keep your eye on the ball, relax those hips and swing… piece of cake it goes 300 yards. Just like fishing; bait your hook, cast your line and reel in your catch. Maybe I should go back to softball… This is actually my favorite time of year, here in Florida. The weather is perfect (usually) lots of visitors, events, and spring breakers. The boats are moving again which means they are stopping here at the Marina for a night, and all is well in beautiful Fort Pierce. Have a great week.
Just in case you happen to see a bicycle whip by you and it looks like Craig, Freddie, or Ryan you would be right. The guys are now getting around on bicycles.
