: Off to Acklins!

Yes! I'm off to 'heaven' 9/27 thru 10/03.

Occasioned due to the fact that there is nothing in the freezer for my family's sustenance. Sad! However, someone must do the dirty work.

Will be reef fishig for the ususal species. 'Cudas, snappers, jacks, mutton fish, conchs & lobsters etc. Additionally, I will wet the TFO 8wt. 4 piece.

Really, don't see any fun in this trip. All work!

If you guys'gals are interested/wish I will post some photos on my return.

Just think of the torture!

Rub it in! We'll be in touch soon. I'll be with Juro and the gang next weekend and we'll make our plans. I may even visit for more than a week this year.
Have a good time.

Felton, have flats boots yet?!

See you in a few weeks.

Certainly, Bill. Plenty space in Acklins! My bet, should spend a month, for company you would need attend a worship service.

Bob I got those fancy boots some time back. However, I'm not sure of the condition now. With a only child, he is of the opinion that 'my stuff' is 'his stuff.' Happy I'm glad I'm 100lbs heavier!

Save some lobster & conch for us!!! Don't catch them all! All work should be so tough!!!

Tim, I am concern that the unions are not invoved in these outings. No one should have to 'slave' in a 75 degree scorching sun all day! Much to cruel; a real nasty scourging.

5-10 knots out of the north-east. Not fair! One could sail a saucer out there.

As for me taking all the conch or lobster, I must admit on this forum, my conchs are harvested in kneel deep water at high tide. There will always be an abundance left in four feet of water, at low tide. Conchs so tender, one need not pulverize them.

Truly, I've heard of groups of four who are taking 100 ghost per day! Yet, there is room.

It will take a couple of generations with the limited numbers we are trapping and or releasing for there to be a noticable dent in the supply.

Trust you guys are keeping Acklins! a secret!!!
