Just might have to

Just might have to Mike... Not my favorite kind of fishin (kings)
had our hearts set on a stream trip and a grouper trip on the way.
Oh well... latest report out past the 20 to the canyon is 5-9's.. so unless the
winds die down, looks like we'll run out to the grouper holes and probably do some near shore trolling.... either way, we'll be out there.

Hey, shoot me yer MMSI so I can holler to ya... we'll pretty much be in range I have the feelin this trip. Leavin same time when I last talk'd to ya, we'll be on the outside by 4:30.

Good luck in the tourney tomorrow!!

It was very windy, rainy and cold in the morning. Sunny, windy and warm in the afternoon. Didn't leave the inlet so not sure how the seas were running. You were wise to wait. I'll be fishing all memorial day week-end (including Friday) so give me a buzz.
