      Did your husband catch one? Or was he driving the boat? It's a good feeling when you out to your spouse. LOL. For my case anytime I take my daughter she always ...more outdoes me. Just weird Honda laws of physics never seems to amaze me. I can go out and do excellent every single day but the day I would get her here she goes out with me I could skunk and she'll be having a field day. But that's what it's about. Nothing more precious than to see them having such a good time like that. It was funny because after moving here it took me about four years even catch my first baby shark. She comes for a visit I take her there went there maybe an hour and she pulls in a baby shark. That's just awesome. When it's your spouse or your child hurry up in a good friend get nervous for first time to me there's nothing that much more rewarding then don't look on their face how excited they are and everything else. You know you did your job per say. Now you know they're always going to want to go and that'll be our future generation.

      Melissa. I'm sorry my message was pretty screwed up. I hope you can make heads or tails out of it. What this site needs is an edit button so you can go back ...more and fix it. I hate texting cuz everytime I do my phone screws up bad. Everything's good before I send it but after I send it it actually changes words. It adds words, it takes words out. It also changes sentences and I just had to happen twice to the same person when I was talking to them my whole sentence was changed. And it only does it after I send it. I've had it taken in I can't tell you how many times and looked at they can't figure it out. Guess my phone is really screwed up. I'm just going to buy me another one next week. Again I apologize

      Did you bow to the tarpon? LOL. That is a good size. Matthew's not small start a good fighting size. Now just multiply that fight on the scale of about 15 times. ...more And that's what you will have with 150 lb up to 200 lb. You're so lucky. Here where I'm at by Galveston we get some Triple Tails and nice size ones an occasional tarpon keep are very lucky to catch those off the pier. But we get a lot of Big Jack's. And I don't know about a Turpin Friday I can imagine since I finished all my life basically and what's a ton of freshwater and saltwater under my belt I can imagine what a big tarpon would be like. Cuz kitchen he's 30 pound jack crevalle they're so hard fighting pounding want to rip your arm off type of fish. I consider them like a 30 or 40 lb northern pike or muskie from freshwater. But good job I would love to catch up on that side to start with just to see the awesome power in them. And the speed and how fast they can move. I bet you they're pretty well almost the same as a jack crevalle.
