Yellowtail After Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma was one of the most damaging storms to hit the Keys in a long time. Yet Florida came together, neighbor helping neighbor, and it was amazing to see. Despite the obvious destruction on land, the storm stirred up and reset the Ocean making the fishing as good as it has been in 30 years.
