June 4-14, went to florida on vacation. Brought a few rods along. We got into florida from alabama and stopped at chipola river. I caught a 20ish pickeral off a chatterbait. Next stop was Lake seminole. Mandi caught a bass around 3 lbs also on a chatterbait. Going down I-75 we fished the canals that ran along side the interstate without any luck. Made it down to the keys and spent a few days. On the way out, we fished the many bridges between the different keys. I managed 2 jack crevelle using a 3 inch pumpkin seed grub. Pound for pound, these fish are one of the hardest fighting fish I've battled! There a blast to catch. After the Keys, we stopped in titusville and fished for about an hour. I caught an 11 inch speck, Mandi landed an 18 inch speck. Then we headed to the Okefenokee swamp. We only caught bowfin that were 12-14 inches. The cool part though was the alligators that would swim to within 5 feet of where we were fishing, waiting for us to hook a fish! Whenever one of us would hook one, the gator would go after it. They snatched 2 fish as we were bringing them in! I got video of the gator going after one that I hooked but he didnt get it, still pretty cool. video

  1. That was insane haha. I can't believe we stood so close to alligators with no fence to protect us.
