Barracuda fishing & Florida Keys Photos

The sunsets took me by surprise. Though I've seen photos of sunsets, I was amazed at how beautiful they were to see in person.

Don, I'm assuming you no longer own the property in the Keys. We glanced at property prices and I don't think we'll ever be able to afford anything down there, unless we win the lottery! Florida property prices are prohibitive, especially in the Keys. I believe they're worse than here in Colorado.

No, sold the property quite a while ago.

I take it you didn't get down to Key West to experience sunset on Mallory Square? That's a real "Florida Keys" experience!

DenverdOn, yes we did spend a couple days in Key West but did not do the Mallory Square sunset events. Next time!! Big smile We stayed on Cudjoe Key, and usually by sunset time we were back at the cottage fixing some fresh fish for dinner! Yes

Thenail, no we did not eat any of the barracuda. We've heard they're edible but most people do not recommend eating them. Last year we ate the redfish we caught and had we caught some sizeable snapper, would have eaten them too. There was a fresh seafood market within a mile of our cottage, so we simply purchased local fresh catches everyday. Very yummy indeed! Big smile We also tried some alligator and frog legs, which I had never had before.

Alligator was interesting, definitely did NOT taste like chicken. lol

We only had it for one meal, and I found it to be rather tough & grissly in texture. But the flavor was mild. I would definitely try it again.
