Billy, I want to thank you for a great trip this past Saturday with the Scott Brown group out of Greensboro. I have never been on a better off shore fishing trip, not even with my own boat. We don't get to many tuna in the Little River inlet area, mostly Kings, Wahoo, and Dolphins unless you can go 60 miles plus off shore. My 22' Sea Hunt just cannot quite make it.

Charlie was the best mate on any boat I ever fished. Please tell him again I said so. His gigging techniques with the spoon were unbelievable, 4 times a tuna if I am correct and the green thing was interesting too.

Pictures of our trip are attached. I just happen to be the one with big smile holding the dolphin and tuna. The 51 lbs tuna was my largest fish ever and now I want the big eye and blue marlin next.

Thanks again,
David Whitt
