#10-The Pelican 48 hr trip doesn't go this time of year.
#9-I can sleep in my own bed, drive 8 blocks and get on the boat.
#8-As we come back and enter the jetties I call the wife and she comes out on the deck and waves as we pass the condo.
#7-She meets me at the dock and we load up the catch.
#6-I am home with my fish cleaned and iced by 8 o'clock.
#5-If I have a large catch I call some locals to help and I'm still home and doing happy hour by 8.
#4-I can take my tackle home, shower, and be back at the dock by the time the fish are unloaded and hung up.
#3-I don't have to travel somewhere and catch the same fish I can catch out of Port A.
#2-A 60 hr trip for me is just that, a 60 hr commitment. No more, no less!
#1-the real reason is my wife tells me to get out there and get some sushimi when we run out and I do as I'm told!
