    Good Afternoon

    Made a fun trip recently. Was planning on diving the
    shrimp boats especially after talking to Kevin Beach
    and Billy Wells at the dock. They had incredible
    catches. Billy told me the boats were picking up and
    rolling out but I still was game. Called a buddy of
    mine in the Louisiana Shrimpers association and he
    told me they were moving in close. That is exactly
    where we found them but to shallow for tuna and
    very dirty so I opted for Wahoo and Tripletail.

    Could not have made a better move or had a better
    time.

    Amazing tails! Do you have any good gopro vids? How hard is it to get on those shimpers with consistency? Being from outa state and all...it's a long trip, etc.
    Thanks!
