    Hey Guys,

    With the news that the Big E is probably sold and will be gone by October 31, I've been thinking about trying to get on one more 52-hr trip before the TBB07 in September. Just wondered if anyone else has any 52-hr trips planned on the Big E between now and then.

    I haven't called the office to see what is still open but hope to find some 360tunaheads or 2coolers to hook up with for the same trip.

    Any truth to the rumor that Gunsmoke bought the Big E? lol!

    I think that is a rumor;) . He hates headboats:mad: . My phone rang last night a 3:00 in the morning. I thought someone had died since I now have 3 relatives either in skill nursing centers or the hospital. It was GS. He was very cocktailed. :p

    He called me the "P" word for about two minutes until he settled down. They had just busted the jetties on their way to Colt 45. They had just left "Sharkey's" (a bar) and hopped on the boat. They all sounded very drunk. I wish I was with him and that group right now. It's my funnest weekend of the year. But, I'm trapped with all the sick ones. Hopefully, next year.

    How about coaxing another good story out of GS, I'm still laughing from the hunt episode.

    Don't encourage him. I just talked to him. He wanted me to drive 180 miles to pick him up in Port A. He's a Spurs season ticket holder and said he would take me to the game. The game starts at 2:30. I wouldn't even get to Port A until half time.

    He missed his flight back. He flew down on a private plane and the guy left him without waking him up. Everybody in the group left early this morning to get to the game. He sounded real tired and hungover. He said he was calling a cab from Corpus to pick him up and take him to SA. I'm sure he has some stories from this weekend. He told me one and it blew me away. Somebody broke rule #3. That's a serious one.

    Rule # 3 is something like this:

    If the boat is running to or from the fishing grounds and you feel like taking a leak off the transom and nobody is with you, put on a life jacket. Especially if you've been drinking. (a man overboard is a problem if nobody saw him go over)

    Yes, they did catch fish. A bunch of Hoo's, a few big dolphin and almost had a big blue to the boat. They found a great rip line offshore of Colt 45 that was full of bait. The temp charts aided in finding the rip.

    He will not make it to the game. He has all four tickets in his bag. I just called him and the cab just showed up. That poor cab driver.

    Galv,

    Scott is looking into it. He'll be sending me an e-mail with some of the available dates and then we'll get serious about signing up.

    There was a date that wasn't booked at all, looked like a promising time for a private charter... but who knows if that will go anywhere yet. Still looking into possibilities. Will keep you up to date.

    Oso,
    I see that you are 15 on your bio. Do they still teach spelling in school? I'm probably about your father's age. So, if you think he's old then I'm old. Your not old until you quit fishing offshore. It will happen at some point, but I'm still going strong. It's not over until you hear dirt hitting your coffin.
