It's a sign.

I have never seen a halo around the sun this strong and defined. This halo covered most the sky and was visible for close to two hours. I didn't research what causes this halo but I think the sun is even pissed off at the price of fuel. Enjoy, JP.

Tarpon Season Opens (unofficially)

Tarpon season actually never closes or opens in Key West. Its just a matter of when the masses of fish migrate to our warm waters that I actually decide what is tarpon season. Sat, April 19 was in fact the beginning of tarpon season If i've ever seen it. Captain Aaron Snell and I reached the spot around 9:30 p.m. We both witnessed something we had never seen before. With a full moon overhead there were 50 plus tarpon swimming under the boat that could be seen clear as day and hundreds more breaking the surface for a quarter mile in each direction. The first 3 casts produced three fish hooked up, jumped and spit the lures and this fourth fish that was landed in about 20 minutes right around 100lb's. Tarpon season was officially open. Enjoy, JP.

Just wanted to post new photos for those of you that keep up. Most are taken with 35mm manual focus that makes me work a little. Its sharp if you can get the subject in the focus plane. Enjoy, JP.
