    Hi there, DFi is a keen fisherman too (and he wasn't impressed with Disneys fishing either!).

    We spent a few days relaxing in Clearwater (at the Hilton, right opposite the marina) and both of us did a days sea fishing - which I really enjoyed too even though I do not fish at home. We used a guy called Captain Butch (great name for a Captain!) and his boat called the Phantom, here's his website: http://www.captainbutch.com/index.html

    There are lots of other boats along the marina at Clearwater and they have boards alongside them advertising if they need any people for the next days trips, so you could always take a chance and see if any are available at short notice - we had pre-booked ahead a few months before.

    We caught lots of fish and as Captain Butch was filleting them back at the marina we had plenty of hungry pelicans wanting the bones - they are huge birds close up! We took a few fillets each back to our Hotel and had them cooked for our tea by the local restaurant, Crabby Bills, for $5 each I think. DFi really enjoyed himself, and he is a serial fisherman - he even took a telescopic fishing rod in his case and fished Hourglass lake at the Pop and off Pier 60 at Clearwater :goodvibes
