    I just came up to the room to take a leak.:D I've been drinking all day and the scotch taste mighty good right now. Pics will follow as soon as I get it together, The two Texas boys are doing fine. Those big black marlin will kick you arse.:D For the first time in my life, I admit that I was a beat SOB. 400#+ black that fought me harder than any tuna in the world could fight. I almost called "Uncle".:eek:

    Film crew is here with us along with a French Jigging and Popping Journalist.:eek: :eek:

    So far, I've have gotten along very well with the Journalist. He is a nice guy. He was amazed at the tackle I brought with me. He has never seen a SR50
    or BX2600:) It will be very fun tomorrow as they have never met any like me and wacker. I just met wacker at the airport. Were getting along fine. Thank god he doesn't drink as I emptied the boat of beer today.:) Wacker is desperate for a Dr Pepper. Non in Panama. He is going nuts about his DP:eek

    Tuna are here. They love poppers. You just have to be patient and watch for signs.

    Mr bill.
    Congrats on the marlin. Tell wacker I said what's up. Don't let him near any guns or there might be less wildlife around. If any monkeys mess with you give him a shotgun and he will get rid of them. I want a pic of himstrapped to a marlin or a cow tuna.
    Good luck.

    Wacker, that dr. pepper is definitely going to haunt you while down there. Perhaps some panamian cocacola will have to do. Cant wait to see your new avet going to town, let us know how it handled some of those south of the border nasties.:cool:
