    Siesta Key Florida fishing trip

    My son-in-law lives in Sarasota Florida and is a member of the Freedom Boat Club. On Monday he took me out on a 24' Cobia boat to go tarpon fishing. After 10 minutes of drifting with blue crabs, I caught a 120 tarpon. Then we moved out to 25 miles out to fish for grouper, red snapper, triggerfish, vermillion, and grunts. I caught a nice sized grouper and lots of the other fish. It was a great trip. I have only been saltwater fishing about 3 other times and never had much luck off the Texas coast with guides.
    What a great trip!

    And then Justin cleaned the grouper and other fish (not tarpon) and fried them up (covered in baked tortillas) for our dinner. What a great meal!!
