Here are a few shots from an overnight paddle trip in the Keys I did with a couple buddies a few days ago. I was on my SUP, and they were on kayaks. The weather and fishing were phenomenal. We even had shots at tailing permit and laid up tarpon, but we had to settle for a couple bonefish and a bunch of big reds.

 

The next best thing after a double catch is a double release. (Photo by Chris Lewis)
