May 5, 2016 - Fishing & Kayaking

Thursday Dave arranged for us to go to his friend, Dalton's, condo in Key Colony Beach, on Marathon Key. Dalton wasn't in town, but let us use his pool, beach and kayaks. It was a gorgeous private beach, where we could fish and Kayak. The guys fished and Dave caught 10 small mouth and french grunts (Bill didn't catch any fish....awwwww).
