A winter in paradise fishing expedition

Stan and I were tired of striking out in our Florida fishing, so we hired a pro to show us the ropes. On the recommendation of some our fishing neighbors we contacted Capt. Shawn.  He took us out on his 24ft center console boat.  There wasn't any sight fishing to be had, so we switched off between spinning gear to cover water and fly gear when we found a concentration of fish.  We did not catch a huge amount of fish, but plenty to keep our interest.  We also caught quite a variety - speckled sea trout, Spanish mackerel, bonnet shark, and lady fish.  Here is a video of the trip with Stan landing a bonnet shark.  In addition to the fish, we saw quite a few dolphins and cormorants that tried to steal our fish.
