knotmyfish cancelled on me for a hoop trip. I called Martha and she was game to go. It was her 1st time hooping. We tried a couple of spots for nothing but net. Current was ripping pretty good, and it was hard to stay on the bottom. We ended up going shallow and started seeing some life. Took home one bug and a stone crab. Martha was keeping a running tally of by-catch. I think it was something like: 3 sting rays 2 shovel nose sharks 2 morays 1 cockroach looking crab 12 short stone crabs 10 short bugs Thanks for coming along, Martha. For a 1st timer, you did really good. Thanks for all the help with cleaning up, and for the excellent cheese crackers!
