Deep Sea Fishing Trip

Last Saturday Vincent House members and staff, as well as family members went on a deep sea fishing trip out of Hubbard’s Marina on Treasure Island.  In total 45 people went, and just about everyone caught at least one fish.  The seas were calm and the weather was great.  We had a great Coast Guard certified captain, and a few very helpful crew members to work with. 
We stopped at 3 different locations all at least 7 miles out from Treasure Island.  The majority of the fish were keepers but we did have to throw some back.  Fish that were caught that day included Squirrel fish, puffer fish, grunts, mackerel and snapper. The biggest fish caught that day was a Spanish mackerel measuring in at about 14 inches long.  At the end of the day we got back to the dock and received the fish we caught. Most people got their fish cleaned and filleted for a 2 dollar charge.  All in all the trip was a successful, very fun and exciting Vincent House outing that I was proud to be a part of.
