Baitfish energizing the backcountry
Chan Warner and his crew aboard the Gulfstream party boat out of Key Largo started off the week with a strong yellowtail bite while fishing in 130 feet. As the week continued, they started catching more and more mutton snappers along with the tails

At the time I was driving a convertible on my first field trips out of the office. I landed a new position [redacted] a few months after parting with my old bosses with no uncertain amount of acrimony and having spent the better part of three years locked inside an old filthy sweatshop turned digital tech 2. 0 eSweat Platform... Fortune had smiled upon me, and I gloated to no audience but the sky gods about my new found freedom and level of escalating responsibility at my new job. But, as I drove on down Route 1, that famous strip of highway that starts in Maine and terminates in the scorching roguish Key West, I didn’t have time to stop in Key Largo. I practice the philosophy that we may pass through somewhere only once, so one must take full advantage of everything we can see and do along the way. It may only be once, no matter how hard you attempt to return, so make the most of it. This drive to experience a place keeps me up at night and at times runs me ragged, lacking sleep, listless, and jolting from an afternoon nap as I see the doom... So, I was sad to have to pass through Key Largo that fine, proud day and miss The African Queen on the way to somewhere else. Craning my neck, I whizzed by (by whizz the author means 35-40 MPH as the speed limit, and ample law enforcement provides along old new Route 1 to ensure you don’t go faster) that fabled boat on my way to Marathon Key. But did not see it other than a mark on the map I was using. I had thought I had missed my one opportunity. Now, I had returned to that same Key. I never expect to be back, but here I was, more than a few months older, somewhat humbled by a few years of employment, and indeed a more practical car. This time, I would see the African Queen. The African Queen is from the film of the same name with Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn. I had watched the film on an old black & white TeeVee we had sitting in the kitchen on top of an ever more vintage fridge. It was years before I learned the film was shot in colour. For some reason, the film inspired my imagination. Really, not the film, but the boat. So, as many children do, or used to do, I went to play in the backyard creating as much of the story adventure as I could out of the broken bits that littered by then small child’s world. I had read somewhere (years ago I would have said an old guide book, but those no longer exist) that The African Queen was sitting in a heap in the middle of some chain hotel. A terminal display moldering at the likes of a Holiday Inn, a Howard Johnson’s, or Super 8 or similarly apportioned traveler’s residence known for cheap rooms, drug deals in the parking lot, and few or no stars on certain advisors of trips. I was again en route to Key West. I had been to the Keys twice before, both for work. The last time was an epic debauchery since our company’s clients know how to party and encourage visitors to take off early in time for the Sunset Festival. Key Largo is the first of the Keys of Florida. A goddamn American disaster film in the making. Some smash up of drugs meets poor children meets Godzilla. A thin ribbon cut of the same bastard cloth as the rest of the Geography of Nowhere except the stores vend items to those engaged in boating, murdering fish, diving, or whatever needs poverty dictates. The Keys are this way until you find the right spot until you see a vista that takes your breath away. A sky roiled in storm far out in tropical blue waters, the palm trees and mangroves, a house on stilts looking over waters flat as glass and somewhere a band is playing and a blender churns bad booze into great sex. Pawn shops and prawn shops, adult entertainment, thrift stores, beer and smoke emporiums and caves. I booked a room in a small cabin complex, the sort one sees when you watch too many Tim Burton films and then close your eyes.
