Hi guys,


Adam and I just wanted to say THANK YOU for such a wonderful time on Saturday.  We had a blast and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.  The ride out was a bit rough, but boy was the payoff sweet! J  Adam and I are still grinning from ear to ear and all we can talk about is how we slayed the tuna.  And, seeing as how Saturday’s trip was my first ever, I can’t help but brag about my citation yellowfin tuna!! J  Of course, I’m happy for Adam, Matt & Allan who also caught citation-sized fish, too.  


I think it’s safe to say that Adam will no longer be fishing alone.  My first experience couldn’t have been more perfect and I can’t wait to relive it all again.  Thank you so much for the hospitality, oh, and enjoy the pictures (I sent them to your email, Heather)!
