We headed out 16 miles into the Gulf of Mexico following the directions on the gps to a sunken houseboat out in the middle of nowhere. Being out that far from land and its only 9 feet deep, but the fish are stacked up there big time!
We really wanted to catch a shark so Larry gave us this big barracuda his buddy caught the day before to cut up and use for bait:
Then we stopped by our pinfish trap and unloaded all the pinfish into our livewell:

Barb caught the biggest mangrove snapper I have ever seen. This thing was a beast! It bit on a huge free lined pinfish and gave barb all of the battle she could handle:
At the end of the day we had a bunch of fish to clean!
We got back from fishing, got all cleaned up, ate some dinner, and then got everyone together to have our own church service. Just sat around the livingroom and talked about more important things in life than fish and recreation and football, etc. We are thankful for fishing and recreation and even football, but they definitely aren't the focal point of living life to the fullest!
