Fishing in the Florida Keys with our favorite guide on the  Ricador---305-743-6786.  His website is http://www.ricadorfishing.com/  

It was a cold day in January. The temperatures were in the low 50's @ 8 AM with 20 knots blowing but the intrepid fishermen of the Soldani Clan would not be denied.  The wind was blowing one way and the current was running another.  Capt. Rick knew that the sooner we caught fish the sooner we would go home.....so he put us on top of  Mangrove Snappers and we caught our limit of 5 each - 3 to 4 pounders- by 11:15 AM.  We were back at the dock by noon...the fish were cleaned and we were home in Pompano Beach by 3:30.  Maria baked two of Mary's larger ones and I fried up a slew of them for all to enjoy.  Life is GOOD.

Thanks Capt Rick--we have never ever blanked out on a trip with him.
