Sharing Fishing Long Tales

" ... I liked your Tarpon Tale. It reminds me of a fishing adventure

of a local Islamorada guide.

He had been fishing around one of the bay's cays, when BANG!

It was not a large tarpon but fought just if it was 25 feet long. Or a little less.

The guide tells of getting the fighter up to the gunnel of the boat, his hand holding the Tarpon's jaw

to be release only to have bay water shower him and that 50 foot long tarpon.

It was at that moment the guide's Tarpon Tale

got interesting.

You see the guide's intent was to let that 80 foot long tarpon go.

The shark took everything but the head and gladly so the guide's hand.

And yes, one of my research tarpons was presented to me by a commercial fishing and research boat

out of Marineland, Fl. That shark took half of that tarpon. So I too had a tarpon head that stuck out

of a 5 gallon bucket.

The looks I got while at stop lights.

The air conditioning in that Volkswagen Rabbit was not working.

The ice I could get in that bucket melted fast,

leaving the tarpon's head hanging out of the passenger's side window.

When caught at a stop light on a hot day

with a very big fish head hanging out your Rabbit window,

just look back at those around you and give a VERY BIG thumb's up."

(I think the Tarpon was less then 100 feet long.)

"Two Swords Molly" Coming. They Are Twins and Double Edged.

And a Bunch More FLA!

Did you know Twins are Coming into Your Pirate Life? "Two Swords Molly," which is which?

"Gator Landing - Bulow Creek"/Painter's Lair

Where does a Bull Gator rest. Any place it wants!


"Hog Huntin' - Bulow"/Painter's Lair

From behind the dunes through the salt marsh land to the back piney county of Bulow Creek is Painter's Lair.

It is said that a Florida Panther walks around 105 miles a day. While in constant patrol of its Painter's Lair hogs and tidewater white-tailed deer watch for this shadow walker. Should you find yourself stranded one foggy night along Bulow Creek with a strange feeling you are not alone. Then it maybe time for you to get back into your car.

I Know!

"Catfish Bend - Bishop's Swamp"

That catfish is over five feet long.

You say I ain't never seen no catfish that big? Well it may have been at least 60 inches. Find him in Bishop's Swamp and you are at, "Catfish Bend." Never try to catch him. He did not get that big by being a mullet.

"Tidewater Swamp Deer - Bulow Creek"

This tidewater white-tail swamp deer is seen here along Walter Boardman Road.

That location is west of the old Bulow Creek wooden bridge north of the Crab Hole. This is hunting lair of a Florida panther Ms. Willa and the good folk around 1905 called, "Old Painter." But that is another story about a young woman reaching middle-age. Her love for her Prince Albert and coon hunting with Mr. Moses. That place was the Bulow Creek Packinghouse. Yes, just across the saltwater marsh and that Famous Crab Hole.

"Bishop's Swamp - The Bear"

Where is Bishop's Swamp? Only Mr. Bishop knows.

And let us not forget the Florida black bear as well.

"A Pleasant Surprise"/Haw Creek Ranch

From: "Big Sam" The Book

"Couragious Crossing - Painter's Lair"

Bulow Creek North of Ormond Beach, Fla.

"Painter," is another folk name for Panther. In this original; A Florida Panther.


"Hog Crossing"/ Haw Creek

Flagler County, FLA.

An original taken from the pages of a book of which pages are still being missspelled.

A tall tale about a bull gator the good folk called "Rufus." And yes a Florida black bear who done mischief, "Old Black Paw." For the educated up north ... If you can not read Florida speak, best Ya' stick to looking at the pictors. Just joking!

"Hard to Port"/Saint Augustine, Fla

Been there. The second Bridge of Lions.

Give a hand. She is turning hard to port against an out going tide; on a full moon with a noreast wind.

"Nor-By-Nor-East/Saint Augustine"

Here a British frigate heads for open ocean past the Saint Augustine Fort.
Orders given, "Nor-By-Nor-East."
And so it was, home to England.

This new work in fine art paper and canvas reproduction has joined
"The Spirit of Saint Augustine" and "The Spirit of Saint Johns,"
within, "The Barry Barnett Collection."

"Spirit of Saint Augustine"

Wait 'til a morning fog just as the sun comes up over Saint Augustine's inlet. She is there.

When will this happen? When the City stops dreaming of better days gone bye and gets to digging a deep water port.

"Spirit of Saint Johns"

Remember the push boats and barges that ran the Saint Johns River?

One day you will be having coffee at Palatka's Famous Diner. Good folk will drop their forks and knives. The waitress and cook will be the first out the double doors. What's all the goings on? The Spirit of Saint Johns is making her run and right on time. But there ain't no push boats on the Saint Johns River anymore. Still Ain't! Everybodys gone Nuts!

Wonder if they have any sweet potato pie.
