I leave my marina in key largo with the plan of going offshore fishing. I was 100% set on making this a catch n cook video so the goals had been set and the fishing game is on!

My first stop is the tavernier creek marina where I get gas for my offshore fishing trip. $407 of gas to be specific. Phew! And then the worst thing ever happens to someone trying to catch fish. The boat engine dies…

3 hours later and having tried to fix everything on the engine I finally get it running again. Looks like I can go offshore after all. I guess a little bit of fishing is better than no fishing at all!

I troll and troll and troll. Right off the patch reefs off key largo florida. I was hoping I could maybe hook a mahi or wahoo or literally anything, but the sun was setting and it’s time to run back home.

At home I decide the fish fight is not over and head to the docks with some shrimp. I also plan on catching a buzz tonight after all those boat problems! At the docks I catch a ladyfish. I get a bunch of strikes, but ultimately am left with just a ladyfish.

Screw it! I fillet and clean the ladyfish. Then I drop it into some batter and fry the ladyfish. This better be worth the catch n cook video title. I actually think the ladyfish didn’t taste too bad, the only problem is that it’s FULL of little ribs.

PS: I will not be eating ladyfish again!
