There are two kinds of trips: 1) fishing trips and 2) vacations where you try to get some fishing in - this was the latter. No worries - much warmer than our local climes, the area is beautiful, nice people, and lots to do in and around Sarasota. We will go back, it will be warmer, and I will try my hand with some kayak fishing.
Stay warm (wherever you may be!)
PS- If you are ever in Anna Maria Ginny's and Jane E's at the Old IGA is the place for coffee, tea, baked goods, breakfast and lunch, local arts and crafts, internet access, and nice folks. The place if FLA funky in the very best way.
