Winter Refuge: Naples, FL

Travel fishing trips, especially with limited or no experience in the area or with the native species, can be very tricky.  Expectations are high from YouTube and internet searches, and the "pressure" is high because the time is short.  I have mixed success with travel trips.  The first time I went to Ocracoke, NC (almost 10 years ago!) we only caught dog fish, but boy were we excited.  I've run around Long Island a bit and have had minimal success.  But in Florida at the Keys a couple years ago we did pretty well, and after two trips of striking out last year I finally landed some fish in the Pacific along the San Diego coast.

Our camera broke so all these pictures are taken with my GoPro.
