FISHING IN 2019!
well you can when I am back at the helm!
ATLANTIC COAST of FLORIDA from Jupiter Inlet. Our fishing reports will appear
Capt. Tony after suffering for 4 weeks with lower back, eventually I sought medical
assistance as I was suffering with sciatica. After being given meds by the Dr.
and making a MRI appointment & a appointment with a neurosurgeon I thought my
troubles were over.
Not so fast as the following day I could not walk or move without severe pain.
Never felt anything like it before in my life. It became so bad my wife took me
to ER where they gave me a painkilling injection. This was enough to allow me to
get to have a MRI.
After that I had an appointment to see a neurosurgeon. He viewed the MRI disc
which showed I had a herniated disc at L5, S1 and would need surgery. So on
Friday 22nd March at 8am I underwent surgery at JFK Hospital. The surgery lasted
RESULT: As of Friday 29th March I have completely recovered and am back to
normal or even better. Just have a small 2 " incision in my lower back. No
stitches, they glue you back together. However no lifting etc. for the next 3
Currently fitting a new Airmar Transducer to our vessel. It's a TM265LH CHIRP
which will give us better bottom definition than those currently installed on
Unfortunately I have not been fishing recently as my wife has been seriously ill
and was confined to Wellington Regional Hospital for a week. She is now on the
mend and gradually gained back her strength. Its been almost 2 months of doctors
visits and she has had 5 weeks on I/V Antibiotics Infusions. Hopefully the last
will be on Friday 25th Jan 2019.
Now the weather has turned nasty. Lets hope for a change of that!
