Road Trip: Florida’s Big Bend

On a whim this past weekend, we hit the road to go scope out a couple areas for future fishing trips/weekends. It was really kind of a spur-of-the-moment thing. Glad I grabbed the camera, because I had […]

A note from Me

Hello everybody, I just had to write a note that I *love* my new blogging software!  It’s not only the software but a new custom template that I got to “plug-in” to the software.  Without getting too technical, it’s like the “wrapping on the gift” or the “Crust on the pie”.  It’s what you see! […]
