The Ford's Fishing Trip

Just a note to let you know what a fantastic time I had on the Kaizen. Captain Trent and First mate Allen were so much fun.  My daughter Lexus, age 15 caught her first big fish, a 35 pound King. I will post the picture so you can see what true fish love is all about. (See pictures below.) My nephew Shane (Visiting from Tennessee) caught a 6-foot sailfish. He took a picture with it and then we returned him to the sea.

I cannot thank Mr. Stewart enough for this great experience and for the great pleasure of working for Earl Stewart Toyota!

Binnix and Newhouse families 

The Kaizen entertained the Binnix and Newhouse families on Sunday 8/18/2013.  These are two great families that I know from Manheim Palm Beach.  It was a beautiful perfect day to travel down the Intracoastal and all of us were very happy with the way we were treated by Captain Trent and First Mate Allen.   Many thanks to them and of course Mr. Stewart for the use of the Kaizen.

"Any port in a storm"

Earl saves Sparrow?

I was fishing last Friday and we were pretty far off shore. 

The little sparrow (?) you see in the picture was apparently swept way off shore by the wind and was exhausted, looking for some place to land and catch his breath.

This will sound like I'm making this up, but just before he reached the Kaizen, flying just above the waves, a barracuda jumped out of the water to eat him, barely missing.

You can see where landed, seeking sanctuary. J

He stayed with us for quite a while. Trent got a picture of him sitting on my finger too.

These pictures were taken 3 weeks ago. Shown in the third picture are Chase Daniels, our first mate and a friend of Trent’s named Jade who is a chef on a mega yacht.  

Atlantic Dogtooth Tuna

The first picture, above, is the first and only Atlantic Dogtooth Tuna ever caught on the Kaizen. It’s in the Bonita family but is a cold water fish normally found up north. This was one is about 10 pounds, very big for that species, and it was delicious. I followed Captain Trent’s recipe, briefly zapped it in the microwave and made tuna fish salad.

Bonita after it took a Shark Bite!

The 2nd picture is what is left of a Bonita was reeling in after a Bull shark took a bite.


Loggerhead Turtle got snagged in our hook

The 3rd picture is me catching our first sea turtle, a big Loggerhead. She was swimming along minding her own business when one of our hooks we were trolling ballyhoo with snagged the collar of her shell…not hurting her but definitely interrupting her day. :)

Release flag fabricated for the Loggerhead Turtle

The last picture is me holding the release flag Captain Trent had to fabricate having never caught and released a turtle before.

Two firsts for the Kaizen...
a Blue Marlin and a Cobia

Lisa caught and released a Blue Marlin Saturday. This is amazing because there are virtually no more Blue Marlins off the coast of Florida. The only ones being caught are in the Bahamas. There has been only one other caught in Florida in the last year.

Also, on Saturday, Mr. Stewart caught his first Cobia and I believe that was a Kaizen first as well!

"I hate to brag J, but Captain Trent, Chase, and I had a pretty good day on the Kaizen yesterday.

In addition to the record Kingfish, we caught 2 more Kings, 2 Amberjack, a Barracuda, two Dolphin [Mahi Mahi], and “came close” on two Sailfish.

This Kingfish was so big, Captain Trent thought he was a “shark” for the first few minutes I was fighting him." J

Earl, Captain Trent & Chase have a GREAT Fishing Day on the Kaizen!
