APtravelnews-January 11th, Bob and Barb “On The Road Again” in Port St. Lucie, West, Traditions Square- One of the now many, Tin Fish Restaurants has a new owner, Rob Troup.  Rob is keeping with the excellent consistency that has been a hallmark of the Tin Fish ascendancy from one restaurant, to now several restaurants and going into the “full-metal-jacket” of franchising as well.

Over a couple of years now, we have dined at several of the Click-It Hot Restaurants and found the seafoods and fish to be in excellent taste and value. We just arrived home from Traditions Square Click-It Hot and from the shrimp, scallops, cod fish, Calamari (squid) their special spicy cole slaw, and mahi, mahi we are stuffed, but happy (we took home a good amount for tomorrow) campers! We also started off our meal with a solid cup of both corn and shrimp chowder, and clam chowder. Frankly, quite spectacular and I don’t offer that comment lightly! Do we recommend Tin Fish, a rousing “yes!”

Our delightful waitress delivered wonderfully tasty clam and also corn and shrimp chowders. The salad was quite beyond what we expected. It was so good we're going back just for this fine melange!

This salad was a meal in itself. It had everything a gourmet would love!

APtravelnews-Jan. 11th Bob and Barb “On The Road Again” in Orlando, FL. We stopped in for a few days at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. We stayed to visit Mike Lee and his wife at the ASI Show. The Lee’s had a booth showcasing opportunities for businesses, to their custom logo’d products. Unique to say the least, imagine fishing lures with your or any picture on it, made into key chains, packaging for clients that wish to give, or award gifts to their clients, etc. Check out Al’s Goldfish fishing items and lures at www.alsgoldfish.com and their Branding website is: Alsgoldfishpromo.com

Barb loves to fish when she has an edge and doesn't have the whole day to hopefully hook a neighbor with shoulders enough for us to spar with! She has become an Al's lover too!

Bob's 17-pound bonefish caught with Richard Stanczyk, owner of Bud N Mary's Marina in Islamorada. The fish was appx. 39-inches and probably on 8-pound spin a record. However, we released the fish after this image was taken.
