Well, he likes sheepshead more than Wahoo, YFT and YT anyway! Funny, since he had a big pile of Wahoo but no Sheepshead at the dock.

Tex, I want to see a photo of your pile of gear :-)

When I was crossing the state line from Arizona to CA the border patrol asked me what I had in my suburban. Apparently my truck looked like I was bootlegging whisky with it riding on the overloads. I told them I was going fishing. With my Texan southern accent (which I dont have) they said go on. I heard them laughing when i drove on thru...dont know what that meant.....???

Back from a P Supreme 8 day, my pile looked much like yours. My wife and I are booked on your trip next year. Could Ya give us your take on releasing unwanted catch on the Excel?
Thanks Steve & B

OK...barring technical "problems", the upload of the actual report is coming soon to a computer near you. I believe it will be worth the wait, and I would suggest that you have drinks and snacks. If you are on the fence about taking a longrange trip, and think you may have difficulty gaining needed home-front authorization...don't read it! This was a really great trip!!!

Fun trip.

Here is one the tax man got. I don't think Bad Bart caught it, just picked it up and I snapped the picture. Notice all the bait falling out of the body cavity of this Hoo'

They lift the smaller fish you want to release by hand and release them.
