Today, I was captain for hire on Todd Lyvers’s new 2022 Grady White 257 Fisherman, along with his daughter Erica. We ran downriver to picnic island and then up to Matlacha. We caught a bunch of big whitebaits and then floated the flats for trout. After catching multiple trout and one keeper, we decided to shoot over to the pier, where we put many snappers in the boat to make a good mess for supper. On the way back home, we traveled on the west side of pine island and then back to the picnic island and home again. I really enjoyed the time I spent with Todd and Erica and hope to do it again soon.
