FISHING FUN IN SW FLORIDA

By Captain Terry Fisher

A lot of fun times and memories were made while fishing with Captain Terry Fisher over the holidays. Pictured here are several of my client friends and their families that I had the pleasure to spend time with on the water during the last week of December and into the first part of January 2019. Fishing was tough at times due to the cold fronts and other factors, but persistence seems to always provide just enough action to make it all worthwhile.

December Fishing with Captain Terry Fisher

By Captain Terry Fisher

Early December fishing proved to many to be a great time to check and angler’s ability when targeting a fish-of-a-lifetime. Pictured here is my good friend John Hennessy of Indiana/Ft. Myers holding a 33″ Snook he landed. We used Pinfish in one of the many canals we targeted upon my returning from Breckenridge, Colorado to float fish for Rainbow and Brown Trout on the Colorado River. John was calm and collected as we waited for this brute to surface. Like many big Snook, this one stayed down like a big Jack Crevalle and tested the knot, line strength, rod and reel in hopes of failure. Good job, John!
