Hello again, Been awhile since my last stab at blogging.
I am in Key West and have been for a little over a month. I have been very busy getting things in order to start a charter operation. I have taken the USCG test and passed. I now have my Captains License!!! Very pleased with the outcome of that part of the process. When I first started this trip a couple of years ago I thought that getting my "ticket" would be the most difficult part of this process. That alone was not the hardest part of all of this. Actually I will say that is caused me the most stress. The remaining things involving the state,city and county along with insurance, along with finding a spot to pick up customers were also a bit of work. As of today it looks like I am all set. I even have a trip that is supposed to happen tomorrow. I am nervous and excited about it.
I have all of my gear and am ready to fish. One problem. The fishing sucks right now. The Tarpon migration looked to be starting off as it should this time of year. We were catching fish and starting and all was well. The weather has been very very iffy. Lots of wind and more wind followed by rain and more rain. As I write this the wind driven rain is drenching Key West. I am hopeful that the weather improves sooner rather than later. I do not want give the impression that life is not great down here in the Keys. All is well down here. Come on down and see for yourself.
Until next time,Adios.
