Thanks for the reply and offer John. The trip got postponed, it's looking like next March, but I'm going to get there. I saw a BF/tarpon full-day charter offered for $275. Unbelievable! Shallow water sight fishing charters in FL are all over $500./day, and out of my price range.
That handle "kreh", are you related to the master Lefty? I'm from Maryland and have had the priveledge to fish with him.
