We caught 2 gaffers, 2 kings and a 44# citation wahoo. The wahoo hit a Tiagra 30 on the planner rod. Needless to say it was a battle. It sure was nice to catch some decent fish trolling. On a much sadder note, I lost my best friend and 13 year companion, Sandy. She was a good ole fat yellow lab. When she was younger she use to love to go fishing and when she was older she loved to come to the cleaning table for some suhsi. Needless to say she will be missed and for all you guys that have lost such a friend you know what I mean.

    Capt. Bill,
    So sorry about Sandy. I know how you feel as I've lost 'friends' before. Wish me luck on my next (last?) back surgery this month. Bobby E. is doing well.
