From Sandy To Snappers

Like most things that cross my path on a daily basis, the great majority require teamwork. Hurricane Sandy, which I suppose is now Superstorm Sandy, blew through Marsh Harbour leaving a mess behind her. Our island pulled together and cleaned up; it's just what we do. And, one thing I know for sure is that after a rough storm, and a few days of cleanup, the fish start to miss ya.  They get anxious for that piece of bait dangling from the end of your hook. Fishing takes teamwork too. The fish get so excited to nibble on a line that every one you cast out can start reeling at the same time. This happened to us about one week after the storm when we were out on the water hooking up Snappers left and right. There's nothing like working your tail off pulling fish after fish in the boat and the heading back in with a cooler overflowing with Snappers and an ice cold Kalik in your hand! After two half day trips inshore we pulled in over 100 Yellowtails and about 20 Mutton Snappers weighing between 10-20lbs and a few even bigger. The bottom line is this - no man works alone on land or at sea. At the end of the day we all need to be thankful for each day we wake up and for the gifts we receive during the day. My friends, be grateful for those who are there to lend a helping hand during times of struggle; teamwork, that's where it's at my friends!
