Hi Captain Billy,


My husband Tony, his two NJ brothers(hey not all of us can be born in North Carolina) and his buddy Larry Fangman of Jennette’s fishing pier fame want to send you a huge thanks for giving them the tip about the Dolphins today and sharing your bait with them.  They were on Her Jag – I was supposed to get a Jag for my 50th birthday and guess what….  Anyway they did fantastic.  I’m sending you a big hug because they are the fishermen; I am the eater of fish.  We really enjoyed the feed.  Again, thanks for being so neighborly. 


Shalom,  Susan
