    3 boats went out yesterday on 12 hr trips. Its amazing the variety they catch.

    Dolphin Express: Mostly kings,some sharpnose, and a couple of bft.

    Gulf Eagle: Mostly bft and a few sharpnose

    Kingfisher: Sharpnose and a lot of beeliners

    The 48 hr tomorrow on the Gulf Eagle has an opening if anyone is interested.

    Very interesting last 3 days. I broke a couple of personal records. Cold front hit us hard about 3:45AM causing lighting and steady 30 to 35 KT winds. Seas went from nice to un-fishable conditions. That was a tough 135 NM ride home. I'll give a better report later but my wife is having a birthday party for me this afternoon and have a lot to do. I need sleep real bad.

    I arrived home last night about 1:00AM and have a few hundred pounds of roughed out YF's in cooler's that needs attention. I also have a major dry out of tackle to mess with as salt water invaded coolers. I've never had igloos fill up with salt water spray in my life.

    Five people catching 14 YFs could have been a lot more productive if two wouldn't have spent so much time throwing poppers on a none top water bite night. I shot some PICS with 35mm film and will get it processed and post PICS at some point.
