Sorry to be out of the loop. I am now back in McMurdo Station, Antarctica following 1900 km's of traversing across west antarctica.
Needless to say I have neither been fishing nor reading this forum. With luck and no mechanical failures, I will be flying 8.5hrs on a New York Air National Guard 109th ski-equipped LC-130 Hercules plane to Christchurch New Zealand tomorrow morning. I will be in NZ for about 2 months fishing.
Will catch up with you all after I return.
