Joseph Summerill, Wes and Jake Bizzell and Dylan Theiss from Washington, DC did a marathon one day Dry Tortugas trip with Andrew and I on the Lethal Weapon. The guys were mostly interested in touring the fort and snorkeling, but Andrew talked them into a little fishing on the way home. Here’s a picture of Dylan and Jake with their trophy Barracudas.

Dr Kevin Croft, wife Shannon, sons Nathan and Landon, daughter Kaley and Tre Hunt from Durant, OK fished the reefs south of Key West and one of my favorite deep-water Atlantic wrecks. Six year old Landon was thrilled to death when he caught a #15 Barracuda. He did a great job. Older brother Nathan went toe to toe in an epic battle with a 7’4″ Goliath Grouper estimated at #600. Nathan was more than a match for the monster fish which was photographed and released at boatside. Tight Lines & Screaming Reels, Capt Ted

Regular Lethal Weapon customers, Rev Bortz from Milwaukee and his father, Bob from Naples fished with Jason and I today. Both Rev and Bob released 2 giant Nurse Sharks each. Rev fought a monster Hammerhead for 45 minutes. We were never able to gain control of the fish and it finally straightened a double-strength #10 hook and swam off. It was heartbreaking. Rev also caught a Cero Mackeral and Bob “turtle boy” fought and released this Loggerhead Turtle that was snagged on the outrigger while we were trolling home. A great time was had by all.
