Randy Doering’s excellent Florida fishing adventure.

Posted on December 12th, 2014

I get the most satisfaction when I can help people catch more fish and especially when I can help them with a planned fishing adventure. I wanted to pass on the comments and images from Randy Doering’s trip to south Florida;

“Thank Italo for your advice and help, directing us on this trip. My friend Steve & I ( buddies since grade 3 ) headed to Florida for tennis & fishing. We planned our trip according to your advice. When we got to southern Florida the weather turned bad so we skipped the sailfish opportunity in Jupiter, FL & had to wait out the weather in the Keys and finally had an acceptable day on November 20 in Key Islamorada, Fl.

florida_keysWe hired Caribsea Charters  with Captain Kenny who has a family run 3 generations charter business. Rarely does an event with all the hype and great reviews quite live up to expectations but Kenny exceeded all expectations & we could see why he has all those great reviews.

snapperKenny was a tireless worker who really loves his job and it shows through his great attitude along with his son & first mate Casey. We did a split charter as he had a couple friends join in and was very reasonably priced.  We were catching endless Mutton Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Grouper and more.  Above, Torne is shown holding his nice Mutton Snapper; the first fish of the day.

fish_dinnerAfter a satisfying day we gave our fish to our new friends but took 3 different fish with us to Lazy Days Restaurant just on the north side of Bud & Mary’s in Islamarada. They were super friendly and cooked up an amazing feast for us right there on their beach front restaurant.  Fried & battered, teriyaki and lazy days style.  They were mouth watering, lip smakin’ delicious! For dessert we sat back with a Jamaican coffee & their famous Key Lime pie .  Thanks so much Italo for your tips and advice that steered our trip to success!”
