|My proud grandson Cody fishing in Lake Jackson, GA in 2004|
Since we're not serious fisherman and a pre-dawn wake-up call was out of the question we opted for a 1pm launch time. We figured that half a day of rigorous fishing would be all we could stand. The Farmer clan rolled into Devil's Elbow Fishing Resort south of St. Augustine just a few minutes before 1pm.
Capt. Rob took us to all (I assume) the secret spots in and along the Intracoastal Waterway near Crescent Beach.

Big brother - Big fish!
Three Big Fish!
An egret joined us as Rob filleted the fish.
Mahi was not as much of a social butterfly as one might expect from a lizard.
Before we returned to the dock we came up on a small sea turtle swimming around in one of the coves. I took several pictures of but none of them turned out very well.
The trip was over and I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the day. It wasn't so much the act of catching fish, which I did, but more about spending time with my Bros. I think we'll do it again next year. Maybe we'll make an annual event out of it. I think I'm even gonna buy some new line for my old rig.
Thanks for reading.
