I have been meaning to send ya'll an email about our trip last week.  In what I believe is our 19th year together this trip ranked at one of the top 2.  It is a toss up between the year we hit the big eyes and literally never went 10 minutes the entire trip without being hooked up.  The first hour of this trip was about caotic.  We had 21 gaffers in the box in just under an hour.  I attached a picture of the nice wahoo we caught, wishing we had the other 2 that bit the line. Also had a decent king and a sailfish release.  As always we had a wonderful time.  Billy (mate) was again superb....best Billy ever had.  Put us down next year for the first Saturday after Memorial day and we will make it an even 20 years together.  Thanks again from everyone.
