Could still be down here till feb/09, working 6/7 days @ 10/12 hrs., I've only fished 3 times, reds & specks are alot bigger, went out of Venice, La & tried chunking for tuna w/ nothing but large sharks behind shrimp boats. Oil rigs were cool to fish & see. Hoping to go out w/ some locals to get my learning curve down. been reading you alls reports & sounds like everyone is getting some pullage. will try to hit key west & hoping to come home over christmas..
