Billy and Heather,
 Thank you for another GREAT TRIP! Captain Billy is a constant fisherman and keeps wanting more for you whether the box is almost full or barely has the skink out of it (which I really don’t see happen).
 Captain Billy and his crew have always shown us a fantastic time. I have fished with Tuna Fever for over ten years and he has filled our box, or limited us out most of the trips. I caught the meat slam 3 times, and have enjoyed every trip.
 Recently, we made a trip and returned with 450 lbs. of huge dolphin. WOW! You just never know what’s going on the grill next time.
 Thanks again.
 Attached, please find a picture form this year and years past.
