    So my wife and I drove down to San Diego to meet the Red Rooster. They were on a 15 day trip. I missed the trip do to some medical problems. So now that I am doing 100% better Nick the second Capt. on the Rooster said he was running the next trip...an 8 day ( Soda ) you should hop on the next trip...Got the green light from my wife....went inside the Rooster office and wrote a check. Nick and I go back a few years and he is one of the best deckhands the fleet has to offer... now he is second on the Rooster..... So I never unpacked for the 15 day I missed.....now I have never done this but now I have to unpacked or down size to an 8 day trip and have 2 days to get my stuff in order. Last 8 day I did was like 15 years ago. Nick told me what to bring so I need to buy some smaller hooks LOL My smallest hook I own is a 4/0 super mutu…. heck I fish 15 and 16 day trips... this 8 day will be new once again for me. I am excited to be fishing once again. We depart in 3 days.... June 14 and will return June 22. O ya I asked Linda the owner of the Rooster if I book this trip and give you a check right now will you toss in a Red Rooster t- shirt and she laughed and said sure.... the trip is light right now...only 22 with my booking. Hope to share the rail with you latter this week.
    PS this picture was a 4 day I did 3 years ago for the fun of it.

    Glad your medical issue was cleared up. Thanks for picking up all my fishing gear in San Diego for me. Great friends like you are hard to come by. I treasure our friendship. Get all the fish I left on my trip. Have fun and enjoy.

    Great seeing you yesterday Soda Pop. Thanks again. Have a great time on the trip. If you hook one of those hang Yellows at Alijos, put on your seatbelt!

    Glad you are coming... I will be your host for this trip. Looking forward to meeting you. Nick said that you were coming and since I have never met you but have heard your name before, I figure with a name like that you are the perfect guy to have on board. Always good to have a guy who brings the mixers! LOL.

    8 days are great
    Grab a couple 30-50 bait rigs and a couple 10' grown man jig sticks and go have fun.
    Early summer 8 days were always my favorite.

    Nick is great, been cool seeing him go from running around on the Dolphin when his uncle Tony ran it to decking to being second ticket.

    I'm jealous, have fun!
