Johnny Hale is a young man that knows what he wants out of life but hasn’t found it. His journey will take him to a salty fishing village in Florida where he will learn that with hardships comes satisfaction. He masters from the old Captain Jim Larson how to be self sustainable from the Gulf of Mexico and respect the deep waters that can give life as well as take it away. He learns from his wayward boat mate Big Barry Schlostic that rewards in life are often the simple things; and he learns from the women in his life that the heart sometimes must hurt before it endures true love. “The seasons changed and Johnny was learning the patterns of a shrimper’s life. Captain Larson took Johnny under his wing and began to show him the finer aspects of being a shrimp boat captain. Johnny loved the life he was building for himself. For Johnny; the status and wealth of someone didn’t impress him. He looked inside the person; he saw people not particularly on how they said something but what they said. Others saw this integrity in Johnny and he became respected and well liked by many in the small town.” If you enjoy salty sea tales and adventure, then you will surely enjoy this journey and portrait of lively characters accented with tragedy, love, heart break, and endurance. Yesterday’s Tides teaches one to learn from the experiences of the past and to take those experiences to build a stronger future.
