So while Capt. Rob McKay and family are vacationing, "poor ole" Capt. Jim is out slaving away in the Gulf reeling in Bonita. Bonita usually run in large schools, providing good action and a strong fight.
Capt. Jimmy Burnsed was on the water this afternoon too, and promised a picture of his red fish catch.
He and Capt. Josh are headed to the Halloween Party at the Tween Waters Inn tonight, so he forgot all about sending Mom any pictures.

Charlie and Pam Kriegel visitng Sanibel/Captiva from Maine.....fished this afternoon with Capt. Jim Burnsed. Can you believe that folks from Maine have on jackets in Florida ? In spite of cooler and windy conditions , Pam and Charlie reeled in on some fun
|Pam and small snook|
|Pam and a flounder|
My Dad , Edgar Collins will be happy to know that this catch ended up in freezer paper with his name on it. I did cook a little for Capt. Jim's dinner.
I took the red fish fillet sprinkled with a little catus dust, melted some butter in a fry pan. Once the butter was warm I added the fish topping with honey mustard. I browned on one side than flipped the mustard side down and adder a few capers. Sauteed until done ( flaky)
The butter, honey mustard and capers made a nice sauce, and the catus dust gave a great color.
