On this episode of Rates & Reels, I got to take out District 77 Florida State Rep Dane Eagle. It was really a pleasure to spend time with Dane and get to know him. It was an amazing June day in SWFL. Light winds and sunny was going to make for a great day of fishing.
The plan was to go Tarpon fishing with legendary Captain Bo Johnson of Tenacity Guide Service but we got a late start. Captain Bo wanted to be out on the water by 6:30 am and due to last minute scheduling conflicts on my side we had to move the time up a few hours. That did not work in our favor.
We saw acres upon acres of tarpon but could not get them to bite anything. The bite had just died off once we had arrived. Lesson learned for the Rates and Reels show. Go fishing when the captain tells you to go!! Sorry Bo!
We did manage to hook into a huge cobia. Dane worked that cobia like he would work a bill on the house floor. Sorry for the political pun. That is all I got!
I did add a new segment to our show called “Rates and Grills” I grilled the cobia that Dane caught and had my sons as taste testers. I’m biased but I think they did a pretty good job and they made me laugh. Hope you like it!
During the interview Dane talks in depth about water quality, Visit Florida and his future in politics. It was very cool to listen to him talk about Florida politics and provide us some insight on how things work.
Thanks for everyone’s support with this show. It is truly done to promote our area and the leaders in it.
Hope you enjoy the show! Low Rates and Tight Lines!
