Leaving Jupiter Inlet on a Winter morning is sometimes a little bumpy. Not today. It was flat calm with a slight NW wind.
The team on board was made up of Bob, Gayle, Paul, and Nancy. We headed north and made a few stops in some choice areas, catching a dozen or so ladyfish, and blue runners on light-tackle.
Then we caught about 15 nice mackerel, and a bluefish up to the northern sector. My guests expressed that fun was had by all.
The bonus was that they took home some mackerel that was skinned and deboned for a nice fish fry. I sure do love fresh mackerel. They taste great and are so heart healthy, like salmon, and sardines. Lot's of omega oils.
