Capt Billy, I had a great day with you and your mate Billy (not to be confused with my other brother Darrell...LOL). 
In all seriousness, I have never been on a tuna boat before and this was a memory I will have for the rest of my life. Billy and Billy pushed our group to participate and be part of the "crew". I was running outrigger lines and we were setting hooks fast and furious. I was both challenged and inspired by the trust Billy had with our group. I have no interest in being on a boat that is not interactive and doesn't request, but expects you to participate, carry yourself like you've been here before (even if you haven't) Thanks Billy, I'll never forget this day for the rest of my life!! Thanks Ed Gooding (the ring leader n my daddy's cousin) for setting this up. I have caught "Tuna Fever" and hope I get to make a tradition of fishing with you guys.
