Hey Dog you think it was anywhere near as big as the water was out in the Gulf when we were out there with the Bullet and the Gun crushin them when the marine report actually called for 7-9's unlike this past Saturday and they were only calling them 6-8's. I rember comming back into the bay that day and thinking how nice it was to have it calm so we could open them up!!

I never made it over. Did Lubejobs ever make it? I don't see it in any of the pictures. I know they worked through the night all week to get it done.

Sarasota was a disappointment! Even though Saturdays run was canceled it was still a great time. There were some beautiful boats there. Fort Myers is in 3 weeks!

Was talking to someone working a charter fishing boat Saturday and she said it was horrendous out there. Waves easily 12 ft. and everyone except for the Captain and two crew ended up getting seasick. They came in four hours early. This was a 65 ft. vessel.
