Sunday, February 26, 2012 ~ may be thunderstorms today but looks like good weather & fishing charters the rest of the week

Beautiful storm rolling across the water, just off Sanibel & Captiva Islands.

This is one of my favorite photos from a storm last summer.

It was taken with an iphone so the clarity is not perfect, but it still gives you an accurate feeling of the emotion of being out on the water and seeing the storm coming at you.

Not sure that it will get this stormy today, but the forecast calls for thundersorms, which may linger into tomorrow, Monday.

The rest of the week looks beautiful and perfect for Sanibel & Captiva Islands fishing or shelling charter!

Let’s go fishing – or shelling!

Fair winds and following seas,
