    I have one spot open for the annual trip to the lump. We will be fishing with Capt. Mike Ellis on his 33 freeman. The plan is to fish the lump both days but we have a backup plan of wahoo/grouper. I have lodging reserved already. The fishing will be done on thurs and friday so there will be less pressure. Lets get the big ones.

    well.......................i am writing this instead of fishing so if that says anything.

    We tried to push it back to any open day this week or weekend and the weather gods have pissed on us once again....I wont be going to venice this winter unless something comes up in the next two weeks. My 2nd son will be born on March 4, and my wife has put a temporary kabosh on fishing once feb 1st arrives.

    That being said if the weather is good ANYWHERE and there is an open spot for crew i am the man to ask. The weather gods are not being kind right now.

    I am hoping there will atleast be a window in the next to weeks to make a boomvang or gunnison run. have money ready to spend on fuel.

    Thanks for asking mrbill, sorry for the rant.

    The weather is killing us.. maybe we will get a window in the next couple of weeks.. or you will find a ride to the floaters.. Better to reschedule than to drive 11 hrs to drink beer and eat crawfish..
