HOWLER DISPATCH: Weeks 5&6

Posted on July 26, 2018

Our trip around the coast of Florida was far from over after Week 4.. After celebrating the 4th of July with some friends we headed south down to Tampa! We met up with our friend Daniel Norris while he was down at the Tigers Spring training doing some rehab. Daniel is a pitcher for the Detroit Tigers but shares many of the some passions for the outdoors that we do. So when Daniel said we could get the van on the field we whipped the ol bull straight into center field. A huge thanks to him for that.

After exploring Tampa for a bit we had a few days to kill before heading to Orlando for ICAST. We figured if we came that far we might as well go big and head down to Key West. We sampled the local food, including the fresh coconuts. We gave a shot at trying to catch some Islamorada bonefish but as much as we didn’t want to leave we had to head to Orlando.

ICAST was an absolute blast. We had a heck of a time meeting everyone and thank you all for the kind encouraging words as well as following along with our trip so far.

After ICAST we loaded up the booth and got back on the road to Memphis, Tennessee! Of course we had to start off the tour with some of the best barbecue around at Central BBQ! The pulled pork sandwich is named the #1 for a reason. You have to make the pit stop if you find yourself in the 901. It was great hanging out with friends and family out at Dixie Pickers! Thanks to everyone that came out and as always thank you to everyone who has helped us along so far. Now its time to get western.
