Billy and Billy and (Heather too):

Just like to say thanks for a great time this Tuesday.  Both Billys (referred to in stories back at the house as, Billy “upper-deck” and Billy “lower-deck” so the family knew who we were talking about) went all out to make it a very memorable day.  All the boys (my sons Ryan and Shane and Kurt’s Josh and Drew) had fabulous time.  It was awesome to get each one in the chair for a fish even though poor Shane couldn’t see what he was doing (due to the sun and the fact that he was still asleep).  One of Shane’s favorite’s stories aside from the fish was getting a chance to steer the boat (thanks made a great picture and a long-lasting memory for him)  Great idea on hitting the wrecks too…it was nice to bring back a bunch of fish (we ended up with about 72 pounds of fillets).  Bottom-line we had a great time all due to your guy’s hard work.  I hope to be able to do it again next year.  If you have any recommendations as far as when the best Dolphin and Tuna runs occur please let me know.  As soon as I get some pictures I’ll send them to you for your website.


Take care and Good luck
