To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

Next year I wouldn't be leaving the wife at home with a newborn so I'll be looking to make this trip as I did last year. Plus, it a good feeling to hold your baby boy.

We had an adventure.

•   20% chance of rain means it rains half of the day
•   Breakfast interrupted by showers in not a way to start the day
•   Hooks in thumbs hurt
•   An 8 pound jack on a fly is crazy
•   2 foot long ladyfish fight like baby tarpon
•   Those wave really will knock you down
•   Water temp was OK, until the "boys" got wet
•   Sand is not a tasty as you might think
•   Fire starting is actually an art, and I'm not an artist
•   "SNAP" in the middle of the night is not a good sound
•   4WD is not really an option, it is a necessity
•   "KA-BOOM" is not a good sound when you have a lightning rod in your hands
•   VHF radios in every vehicle is a great idea, which we flubbed
•   Too much food, was actually a complaint......  We didn't go hungry!
•   Packing list, and packing list, and check the packing list.....
•   Tell the few anglers that are actually catching fish that we would like to add fish to the menu, and to keep a few....
•   Yes, it is possible to nap after drinking a Monster (R)
•   "New to the club" does not mean he doesn't know how to fish!
•   0230 really is a bad time to drive
•   "Whrrrrrrr" when trying to start the truck is a stomach churning sound....
•   Spanish mackerel will hit a swivel as quickly as a fly
•   I didn't know there was a city at the jetties


Report, and pictures in the works.

Should be a good story, Puck. Glad y'all made it back in one piece.
