9/12 - READ THIS REPORT

YES, I WAS STANDING NEXT TO MY BOAT ON AND OFF ALL NIGHT WITH A FLASH LIGHT, IN HAND POINTING UP INTO THE GIANT OAK TREE S THAT SURROUND MY SMALL NEIGHBORHOOD, THE NIGHT OF THE 10TH OF SEPTEMBER.
I WATCHED AS THE 100’ PLUS FOOT TALL OAK’S BOWED BACK AND FORTH IN THE WIND. SCARED THAT A 1000 POUND BRANCH OR THE WHOLE TREE WOULD COME CRASHING DOWN ON MY HOUSE, OR MY BOAT SHED.
IT WAS SCAREY. TO SAY THE LEAST., AND BY NOW IN JACKSONVILLE’S EASTERN SIDE, NEAR THE INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY.  THE HURRICANE WOULD ONLY BE A TROPICAL STORM.  WINDS SPEEDS WERE IN THE AREA OF 75 MPH, COMING ACROSS THE RIVER AND MARSH, IN TO THE AREA WHERE I LIVE.
I LOST POWER AT 5:30AM THAT MORNING, BECAUSE OF TREE’S FALLING ON POWERLINES. THERE WERE AT LEAST 5 LARGE TREE’S THAT EITHER SHEARED IN HALF, OR WERE UP ROOTED, AND PULLED POWER LINES DOWN AS THEY FELL.
IT’S NOW THE MORNING OF THE 12TH OF SEPTEMBER, AN D POWER WAS RESTORED LAST NIGHT. JACKSONVILLE ELECTRICAL AUTHORITY IS FANTASTIC, ALWAYS SEEMS TO BE ABLE TO RESTORE POWER IN MY AREA FAST. THEY DID THE SAME DURING HURRICANE MATTHEW A YEAR AGO IN LATE OCTOBER. ONLY HAD A LOSS OF POWER FOR NOT EVEN A FULL 24 HRS. BACK THEN.

————————-
THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS; “I’M UP AND RUNNING!”  MY BOAT WAS SAFE AND NEVER EVEN WAS HIT BY A TWIG OR A BRANCH. MY HOUSE WEATHERED THE STORM WELL. NO DAMAGE.
————————-
COMPARED TO SOUTH FLORIDA. WE GOT LUCKY WITH THIS MONSTER HURRICANE.
DO NOT FEEL LIKE YOU NEED TO AVOID FLORIDA!  AT LEAST NOT N.E. FLORIDA.
I’M READY TO FISH!!
SURE THE INSHORE WATER’S WILL BE STIRRED UP FOR A LITTLE WHILE.
BUT UNLIKE HURRICANE MATTHEW LAST OCTOBER, THAT PASSED BY JACKSONVILLE AS A CAT 2, 55 MILES OFFSHORE. THAT WAS A OCEAN BASED STORM.  IRMA WAS ON LAND, NOT WATER.
THE FALL SEASON IS READY TO KICK OFF!!
I HAVE MADE THE INVESTMENT IN A COMPLETE OXYGEN SYSTEM, THIS YEAR. IT’S HOW I WILL KEEP MY LIVE SHRIMP IN THE MOST “TIP-TOP” CONDITION.  UNLIKE, JUST RECIRCULATING LIVEWELL WATER.
MY OXYGEN SYSTEM, WILL “SUPER CHARGE” MY BAIT. AND A SPUNKY SHRIMP OR BAITFISH IS THE BEST BAIT TO USE.
BE READY FOR REDFISH - SPECKLED SEA TROUT - FLOUNDER AND MORE!
BEST OVERALL “LIGHT TACKLE CHARTERS”.....2 PERSONS.
EQUALS, BEST VERSATILITY.
THE TYPE OF FISHING I’LL BE DOING FROM HERE ON OUT TILL NEXT MAY, IS NOT A LARGE GROUP STYLE FISHING. BUT RATHER A HIGHLY INTERACTIVE, LIGHT TACKLE SPORT FISHING.
TRY OUT JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA!
WE ALL FEEL TERRIBLE FOR THE LOWER PART OF THE STATE. NO ONE WISHES ANYTHING LIKE A ” HURRICANE IRMA” ON ANYONE.

LIKE AFTER KATRINA, IN LOUISIANA. ONCE THINGS WERE SORT OF BACK TO NORMAL. THE STATE RECEIVED A HUGE AMOUNT OF NATIONAL FOCUS.
FROM TV SHOWS STARTING LIKE, SWAMP PEOPLE TO CAJUN PAWN STARS.  DOCUMENTARIES, TO FISHING SHOWS.
THERE WAS A UP RISING OF INTEREST AND FOCUS ON THE STATE OF LOUISIANA. WHICH IN ALL REALITY, HELPS THE ENTIRE STATE “RECOVER”.
I WATCHED IT HAPPEN.
NOW, FLORIDA NEEDS YOUR ATTENTION.
AND N.E. FLORIDA, CAN BE THAT AREA.
I’M READY TO GET BACK AT IT.
