The gigging is good also when you can go, the best night over the past week was Saturday night, we had 24 in 5 hours. If you guys have any questions, fire away and I will try to answer them the best I can. I have also been roped into doing one of EC Sports seminars on Aug. 12.

Great family and they had a blast. Only one thing was missing. Heather wanted to catch a redfish. KC put her on fish and she had a TopWater blowup but the red missed the lure. KC was on a mission, so on their last day of vacation
