Living Life Like a Tourist in My Own Part of the World

I'm sure that is what my sister said when she hauled in this Wahoo off the coast of Stuart, FL. She started off her 15 minutes of fame with this note in the TCPalm Fishing Report
Jennifer Schmidt of Stuart wowed the crowd at Jupiter Point Marina Sunday when she hauled in a wahoo longer than she was tall and estimated to weigh between 70 and 80 pounds. She caught it live baiting a sardine with husband Ron Schmidt in about 80 feet of water north of Jupiter Inlet. The battle lasted 45 minutes on a spinning rod. Just before the wahoo catch, Schmidt was reeling in a small 10-pound kingfish when a blue marlin chased it down and ate it.
