"Get Hooked on New York"

My Army Buddy and the Ocean Details
Name:My Army Buddy and the Ocean
Created By:hammerdoc
Details:While visiting an old army buddy in Port St. Lucie, FL, we launched his boat from Jupiter point.

About 6 miles southeast of Jupiter, we anchored and spent the first day catching sharks. I kept 2, about 24" long each as that is all I wanted to keep and eat. However, I had never eaten shark before then--had I known how good they tasted, I'd have saved the 2 biggest, about 4 and 5 ft respectively!!!

On the second day we went 7 or 8 miles out, due east of Jupiter. There we floated and trolled and caught some nice mahi-mahi.* Mine was 4' 10" and my army buddy's was 5' 2".

*(Used the Hawai'ian name so some PETA-head doesn't start spammin' up the site 'cause he thinks we're eatin' Flipper!)
