**UPDATED** We’ve updated this post to include our 2019 presentation (below). We’ve added a lot more information and images to this year’s presentation as opposed to the previous versions. You can download the updated presentation below.
We’ve been asked if our TrawlerFest presentation, Cruising to the Dry Tortugas, will be posted on our blog and so I thought I would share it with you along with the map handout and some resources we shared. Below is a link for a PDF of the presentation. We did show a few short videos in the presentation which I had to take out to make the file size smaller on the PDF. Most of the videos are ones I’ve posted before on this blog and you can view all of our videos on our Youtube page.
