    Etan,

    Is that the Pelican that you can see on the Ferry Landing/boat ramp cam? It appeared that they caught a limit of snapper along with AJ's and some Jacks.
    Did the Capt ever come back from Costa Rica? I think his name is John Brennen.

    Thats the Pelican setting in front of the boat ramp cam. Those are African pompano and maybe some small AJ along with the snapper. The boats come back at 3:30 for the 8 hr and about 6:00 for the 12 hr. The cam is neat for me because when I see a boat go by I can just look on the computer to see the catch. John came back and is running the Pelican. Kelly who owns DSH also owns the operation in Costa Rica.

    You must be at Teal Harbor. If so, nice place. My brother had a place there for about 10 years.

    No I live at Clines Landing. I see everything that come in to Port A and leaves. I know all the headboats and most of the private boats so I keep up with what is happening.

    That live cam will save you the trouble of leaving your unit and driving to see the fish. To bad Fisherman's Wharf and Dolphin Docks don't have live cams. You'd probably never leave your balcony. I know at least 10 people that have units at Cline's. I hope your unit isn't one of the ones facing the ferry landing on the 2nd or 3rd floor. That new giant house on Turtle Cove is blocking some peoples view. They aren't happy about it. I know the guy that is building that monster. He's in no hurry. It's going on two years of construction now. It's built to withstand 200MPH winds.

    Was is a little louder than normal last weekend at Clines? I know a bunch of guy's that were staying there last weekend for a Charity fishing tournament. Unfortunately, I couldn't make the trip. Two years ago, we had a kickoff party in the "Dolphin" room downstairs. I don't think we are allowed to come back after one of us ran through the security gate and drug the gate and even the electric motor. The gate was ruined for the weekend until a welder could re-attach it.

    He paid for it, but even though about 8 guys owned units in Clines, we were supposed to park on the street. Well, tell that to 70 guys that had been at a Pre-party at another guys house in Island Moorings. Drinking all day causes things to get a little crazy. I understand it was really crazy this year, but they did raise a lot of money for a Children's charity.

    We are on the swimming pool side facing the gulf. I always walk down to see the boats come back. If everyone had a fish cam I'd probably weigh 400#. Its actually very quite in the units and the goingons outside don't have much effect.

    This is a great time of the year to be looking at the swimming pool. I bet you tell your wife you're going outside to check out the boats with your binoculars. I'm sure when she sees you looking straight down at the pool all the time. I always pack a pair of bino's when visiting people at Cline's.

    I have a friend that has a unit on the 8th floor facing both east and north. If fact, I've talked with him twice this weekend. I like having drinks with him in the evenings because I can spy on buddies that live in the "Private Marina". That's the nicest place to live on the island. There can be 400,000 people on the island, and you don't even realize it if you stay there and never leave.

    Since you're facing East, you will see a 33 Bertram in the Clines marina. I'm friends with that guy. Also, you will see a 35 Bertram about the third house down on the channel side of the "Private Marina". He's also a friend. Even though the location is fantastic for offshore fishing (1 mile from end of jetties) the tanker's can cause major headaches with the water displacement they move. Each time a full tanker comes through the jetties, it will cause a 3foot tidal change. That makes it tough to tie up a larger boat that cannot fit on a lift. I've tied my boat off friends houses in the Private Marina a few times. It isn't worth all the trouble. You really need extra strong fiberglass boom sticks to hold you off the dock.

    I maybe ought to hire you to do some spying for me. Sometimes these guys that you can probably see from your balcony are fibbing to me about their fish stories. The only true way to tell, is to watch them unload the fish.

    The DSH cam has fish on the boards at 3 all the time.
    Even in the marina at Pt A it has a bad current after the tankers. Kept on coming in then outttt.
    We were in the Pt A race in an IC 24, and this boat being a racing boat we didnt have a motor, and it sure makes for a rough start sailing out of there.

    Anytime I'm home I'll spy for you! Just tell me when and which boat. I'm on the east and north side also. I like the private marina also but it is hard to beat the view here at Cline's.

    This web cam stuff is nice. I have four at home and four at the coast. I can go online at anytime, anywhere and check out my stuff. I also have them set to a motion device that starts a camcorder.

    I'm surprised you don't have guns mounted to remote controls so you could shoot thieves on the spot. I remember the time you set Bear Traps in your yard to catch some vandals and you ended up killing your neighbors cat.
