    Hi guys,

    I am going to Wayne's studio over in Wakefield, RI on Saturday, if anyone wants to join me they can get a real good look in person of his amazing art(photos). I will be picking up a framed 18x24 of #9 of his tuna series. He has some amazing photos available, a great christmas gift for your favorite angler(or Capt.;) )

    You can check out his stuff at Ocean Aerials - Wayne Davis

    I wont be so quick to dismiss baskers anymore either....did you see the one with the bluefin following?:eek:

    The hunting formation is sick, seing all those wakes behind them stirring up the water, while the water in front of them is still.

    The photos online dont do them any justice whatsoever...you gotta see the real deal in person to truely appreciate.

    Dom,
    One of the best bites we had in morehead two years ago was thoroughly mixed with baskers and other sharks. I lost three planers that day to sharks.

    Awesome pictures.....Guys somthing very interesting, notice how on all the
    tuna shots there's 2 or 3 fish breaking the surface but most are under the surface, and are all facing the same direction.

    Thats why its good to cast even to 1 busting or boiling tuna, because there
    are many under the surface, and also be aware of which direction the tuna is
    going. I have known this for a while and i think its helped me with my success
    and the pictures has proved it.

    Very nice Dom, thanks for sharing.

    Dom, I'm sure whatever you choose for your favorite wooden plug maker will be appropriate. When you drop it off I'll even let you pick out a place where I should hang it. :)

    Wow what a wonderful portfolio.
    We run a spotter plane for our fishing operations in Oz and a good chunk of lifetime on the water has resulted in a bunch of neat sights.............but nothing that compares to that portfolio.
