First of all let me say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope everyone had a nice time with their friends and family, I know I did. Anyways I was planning on going to the glades possibly do some fishing and take some pics with my friend Danny a.k.a Fat, who surprisingly didn’t have to work on Thanksgiving. We planned on heading out before the sun came up. That didn’t happen, I forgot to set my alarm so I ended up waking up at noon the next day. I walked outside and it was nice and cold. The sky was blue everywhere I looked. I was so pissed that we didn’t get to go out. I called up fat right away and told him we should have gone. I told Fat that maybe we had enough time to head out for a bit before Thanksgiving dinner. He quickly replied and agreed to going to the glades. My friend PK had called me, I told him that I was heading out in like 20 minutes. He had some plans already. As I was getting ready, I got a call 5 minutes later saying that the plans he had didn’t come through. PK met us up at the gas station with his girlfriend Dannette. He bought 3 dozen shiners and we were on our way.
It was such a beautiful ride to the glades. We had the windows down the entire time just soaking in this chilly weather. We stopped at couple of places to get some pics so it took us a little while but I’m glad we did it. Once we got to where we wanted to fish, I just sat back and enjoyed every minute of it. Bass fishing in the Everglades is the reason why I started flats fishing in the first place.
This is our buddy, we named him Fluffy Thunder.
Dannette has been killing it this week in the freshwater. She caught her first peacock ever and now she is in the glades putting a hurting on these largemouths. Its awesome that PK introduced her to fishing. Im sure sure she will never forget these fun times.

I wish these things were in working condition because PK’s truck almost ran out of gas.
As soon as we got some service and some unheard voicemails from our friends and families. It was time to head back to the house. Since I didn’t fish the entire time, I wanted to toss the long rod for a bit. Got lucky and caught 2 baby snookies.
We hurried up and got back home to shower and get ready for dinner. I had an amazing time with great friends. I can’t wait to do it again. I hope everyone everyone had an awesome TURKEY DAY!!!!!!
Until next time, stay classy Miami.
