Happy Birthday Mike and mission accomplished. Thanks to Juro's expert guidance, three of the four fish I hooked up with today were keepers. Only landed one keeper but the other two were large enough to leave no doubt. Actually, the two that got away provided just as much excitement as the one that didn't. Lots of firsts today. Keeper. Bigger fish. Into the backing. Nauset. Rip Ryder. New friends. Doesn't get much better. Thanks friends. J.D.
