But, if a big storm or hurricane developed in the Gulf, all bets are off. Having said all that, personally, I’m hoping and praying that we are not impacted by the oil and preparing for the worst.

October 10, 2008

I called Don at Cedar Key Marina and he?s had a busy morning, a lot of people are going out today. He said just about everybody that goes out after Red Fish are getting their limit and that the people after Reds have also been catching flounder on the bars.
