Great site. When I see pics like those it makes me miss the good times off So. Fla., The Keys, and the Bahamas.

Hi I am making a self financed video on fishing, and I need shots of people cranking on fish in harnesses or chairs asd i discuss that very briefly. I can guarantee, and will prove with  free copy of a DVD sent to you upon completion, that any shots used will be shown only in passing for about 8 seconds total in a video that will be at least 40 min. long.If I can use any of your photos I will put credit for you in my video and send you 20 bucks per photo. How does that sound? The video is going to the editor soon so if you can get back to me ASAP that would be great. Tx!

I just saw your post on the Fla sportsman forum with that huge dolphin at #54.  great pics!! I have a son who is an eagle scout that is working the summer at the Florida Sea Base Boy scout camp in Islmorada. I was wondering if you had room on your boat, what you might charge for a day on the water with him. thanks, John
