    Thanks Billy , your efforts are an encouragement to all who have read your reports.
    And your photos are evidence of a job well done. Great fishing starts at home, and ends In the water. Your forethought , and positive disposition put you in the right place at the right time. None of that is luck.
    Just like the sushi and sashimi dinner , that ain't luck
    But good effort. ...... Thanks Billy .
    You help us all to really see what is still there.
    ......Thank you.

    It'll be interesting to know what's your success rate (percentage) in term of successful trips versus skunked trips... kind of like shooting percentage in basketball... makes versus misses...

    I didnt really keep track of it…but if i had to guess…i may have skunked 5-6 times this year and have had 20 fish catching trips. Right around there. Usually 1 skunk per 4 trips, but recently I've been on a roll with fish caught on last 6-7 trips.

    When it comes to what % of fisherman are catching what % of fish your 99.997% number is way closer to reality than that 90% 10% number people throw out there often...

    Very nice. We had the craziest little tuna like 3-5 lbs fish jumping out of the water we figured might as well catch some all four of us throw lite 15-25 figured perfect for what was jumping. All reels except Brads the one with 40 lbs braid backing, got spooled!!! We chased fought landed a 55 lbs yft. By now every boat was on us. We went t mackerel bank. Caught some 35-40 yft. Soooofun. Need to work but be out thur. Hope to see you. Jeff
