Hey Billy and Billy,

I just wanted to drop a note from me and the 8/13/09 tuna wrecking crew to say that by far and away that was he best day fishing I/we have ever had. The two of you are absolutely first class and there is no doubt, you are the BEST charter out of Oregon Inlet...probably the whole eastern seaboard !!! CG (the other fat old guy) and I have done many a trip together over the years, but everyone of them pales in comparison. Thanks again for the best fishing trip I've ever had and we'll look you up again next trip to OBX !!! PS...I think I personaaly went through close to a fulll bottle of Kikkoman Thursday night !!! Oh so good !!!
