  • Fin prick causes month of pain,...

    The water temperatures have been very hot this year, staying close to 90 degrees most of the summer. The week of July 24 was the last week I have been able to do any fishing until this past week.

As a charter guide, I get stuck by fish fins all the time, not to mention all the shrimp that horn me throughout the year. Well, one fish must have gotten me a little bit deeper and apparently was carrying some nasty bacteria. I knew within a few hours this incident was different.
