Smooth sailing
Day two is nearly over and the ride so far has been excellent with sunny skies and a very manageable sea. We are in to what I always refer to as the "veal" stage of the trip. Physical exercise kept at a minimum and we're being force fed around the clock. OK, nobody is actually forcing us to eat but when we are being served pastrami sandwiches the size of small mountains, platters of boiled shrimp, pizza,tacos and steaks...you don't really have to twist our arms to over indulge. We had the first tackle seminar this morning followed by a generous give away from our sponsor Izorline. Howard Hada, our usual chartermaster was unable to come this year and we all miss him greatly and wish him our best. His duties are being ably taken over by Keith Patterson, another regular. Keith gave away T-shirts and then each of us had two picks of our choice from a large box containing a variety of items from scales, tools and gloves to small spools of line and assorted fishing products. Every one also got a jig and special thanks go out to Tady lures as well as Izorline. We'll do it all again tomorrow and try our best to ration our enthusiasm and let it build to a slow crescendo culminating with lines finally in the water and the sounds of screaming drags filling the air. At least that's how we are hoping it all goes!
POEM OF THE DAY
Fish and Game declared in Key Largo
That snapper stay out of the cargo
But 20 bucks apiece!
Just to catch and release?
The embargo on Pargo too far go!
