Hi Heather, We finally made it out this year on Saturday the 25th. What a surprise…. The Billy’s were back… We had a blast with both of them. We filled them up with Venison Jerky and deer sticks and sent them on their way. While we had great weather, the days before and after us weren’t so hot. I saw you posted the trip info in the website and if you knew how hard Billy worked to get the 6th Wahoo so everyone had one you would have given the poor guy credit. I unfortunately had to reel it in and I felt the pressure knowing how easy they are to lose and how bad Billy wanted it. I cranked as hard as I could and that fish never turned on us and in the box he went. Billy told me about the Blackening seasoning and I stopped by and got some before I went back to VA. He was right it was really good. I added the attached lemon dill sauce to the Wahoo after it is on the plate and my wife told me it tasted just like Chilean Sea Bass. It kicked it up another level. I know Billy’s surgery is coming up soon and please tell him we will be thinking about him and hope he recovers quickly. Thanks, Bob
