    Leaving this morning to head South to finally get out and go fishing for 6 wonderful days with Ray and the AA crew. Haven’t soaked a bait since My 10 day in December and had major shoulder surgery the next week. Lots of lost sleep, pain, rehab and working out and I finally get to put the good Doctors work to the test.

    Hoping Ray points the bow South and beelines to the Rocks but no word from Lori yet so I had to bring more gear than I wanted just in case. This is when having a truck comes in handy

    Wish us luck and if you’re on the trip I’ll see you on the dock Sunday morning

    Good luck Dan. You so well deserve this trip. Now go test those doctors. If I were a betting man I would say those doctors fixed you up to go after those speedy Wahoo and those hard pulling Yellowtail. There are tuna at the rocks now. 20-40 ponders

    Good luck my Brother. I think time spent on the water with good friends...and the chance for nice fish...should set your mind at ease. Your not 20 anymore.... so don't let your desire to show how well or quickly you heal...with the need to quietly hurt yourself due to pride. I think you'll have fun either way. Good luck...and fish karma for you!!

    Go get ‘em, Dan! Sure hope you get your wish and make it south far enough to get into some Wahoo fishing and some of that quality YFT we’ve been seeing in reports.

    Just under 3 weeks for me before getting back on the Angler.

    Please post how your trip went. Steve K and I have 8 day trips on the AA in the next 2-3 weeks and good information is really helpful. I’m bringing everything in my arsenal due to “anything can happen” on 8+ day trips.
    Good luck 🍀👍. I know how exciting these trips are .

    Good luck Dan. Shoulder surgery sucks. I’ve been there. You will be fine. Just be careful not to bump in to anything.
