The High Seas

John's Pass, Florida

We drive to Johns Pass and book a 39 hour fishing trip on the Friendly Fisherman. We leave Friday at 3 PM and return Sunday morning at 6 AM.

That's two full nights and a day with the stars wheeling about on the horizon. I buy the meal plan, 3 dozen pinfish and rent tackle.

I hope for some gray snapper and a grouper or two. Red snapper are highly protected and need to have a length of 31 inches to retain. For lunch I have bacon-wrapped shrimp. This sounds better than it tastes. Live and learn.

We have to cross the new Skyway bridge. The old one fell in when a freighter hit it in the early 80s. The toll is still $1. A bus and a bunch of cars went off the broken bridge in a blinding rainstorm.
