deep sea fishing trip

just thought id share some pics of all the wildlife i saw on a deep sea fishing trip. my grandma is down here from mn visiting and about to go back, so we thought wed use the fishing trip she got us for xmas. this was out of tin-city in naples, fl. we had to troll through a canal type thing but this is where we saw dolphin, bald eagles, ospry, tarpon, pelicans. we ended up being 13 miles offshore (about an hour out) where we saw sea turtle and one person caught a shark that flew out of the water, dont worry it broke off the line, so noone ate him. the capt and deckhand said there we were over coral, mostly soft... and it was 46 ft below.

it was really fun being on the boat in the ocean. i didnt care much for the fishing, everytime i felt the nible, i just let em have it and brought the pole up so i could keep feeding them, is that bad?

anyways on with the pics!

no, i didnt catch anything! i felt em nible, just let em have it. i just liked the boat ride and the wildlife and my beer. my grandma actually caught a sea turtle tho. the guide said it was probably 4-600 lbs. the line snapped before we saw it tho. this other guy caught one too, it was smaller and we did see it but that line snapped, too. they do everything they can to get em up so they can get the line and hook out, but sometimes it doesnt work. the guy that caught the smaller sea turtle also caught a shark that came flying out of the water, bout 4 ft. i was too slow and didnt get a shot of that. the line snapped so he didnt get to eat it.

we werent aiming for the shark, i guess he was in the neighborhood. we were going for snapper and grouper. some ppl took some snapper home, but all the grouper that were caught were too small (they have to be over 20"). most of the snapper were too small too. ppl also caught a puffer, pinfish, and some venemous fish that i cant remember the name of.... it was real fun.
