We are looking at the weekend of the 28th and watching the weather patterns. The boat is ready as twobitdad and myself have spent some time getting her fit.

twobitdad has since added radar to the boat and we have agreed that two daytime legs (freeport stop to refresh) is a wiser choice for the time being. We will have some night ops at the end of each of these legs but are both looking forward to the trip. All is pending a positive weather window.

Thanks Again

Casey - sounds like a smart move breaking the trip up a bit. And give twobit a fistbump on the radar. That definitely helps.

You guys will have a great time. Take pics and bring back a great story! Oh, and make sure to troll a dolphin rig behind you - especially where you see the green/blue line in the water. Great fishing!
