Yeah I've been to the Keys. Sloppy Joes and Key Lime pie! Fort Lauderdale during spring break was a blast. Wouldn't mind doing that again. And a bunch of other places were nice in Florida. Nice visit especially this time of the year but home, at my quiet little cabin, with very little traffic, non-existent crime, critters in the yard that typically don't intend to kill me, and most of all, privacy, got all that whooped easily. We could stand for a few more bikinis on the beach.
Given the time I would cart my butt down there for a couple weeks of fishing and sunshine though. And I suppose visiting family.
And I'll bet that big bass would have been pushing 8 pre-spawn. Next year you'll be cranking in one of it's offspring.
What you do in the dark will someday come to light.
