good set of pics you Kevin

2 questions.

first, what camera do you guys use? Im thinking that being on a kayak and most likely having been dunked at least once, not to mention it looks like you give it a work out, that if might be worth looking into. I had get a new one this year do to water damage.....thank god for no questions asked warranty.

and second, where'd you guys see the puping sharks, my guess is over on the E.S. somewhere. Looks like it could be interesting on light tackle!

My wife was looking through the pictures with me, after I called her over. She says she would like us to paddle out with you guys sometime to watch and take pictures. I said "They cross the bay in their kayaks...I don't think so. We'll just see 'em off at the beach." You guys are hardcore for sure, based on your trip map and pictures.
