The vis sucks (and so does Dam).

I went out today with my neighbor Joel Olenik and Dam. (Guess who got a fish?)

We tried a lot of spots, and the vis ranged from piss-poor to shitty. At the last stop, I got sick of staring into the gloom and I was getting pretty damn cold, so I gave it up, got in the boat, took a hot shower, and got dressed.

After a while, Joel came back too. Then we started the "where is Dam" routine. Soon Joel spotted him in the distance, and he seemed to be through and heading back. Then we saw the usual silver gleam next to him.

It weighed about 62 pounds. He's such a prick!

In the second photo, the head to the left is Joel heading back out, but it didn't work. He just got colder than hell.

Now wonder he did not pick up his phone today. Nice effect of leaving the slip tip toggled...

Beautiful fish (all barred up)

Re: The vis sucks (and so does Dam).

DAMit!! Way to go dude! You guys have definately been paying your dues down there in the mud, but the payoffs are awesome! Nice fish buddy!

Bill, you get more beautiful shots of fish on your boat. I wish I could get a good one of the fish all barred up like that, I guess it takes having somebody waiting on the boat with a camera as they tend to lose their bars shortly after pulling them out of the water. Really epic pics, congrats again guys!
