    It was nice in the morning. We ran out 50 miles at 30 knots with no problems. At about noon it started getting pretty windy and sloppy and we headed in at 3. Did manage to get a couple of fish.

    Glad to hear it, I woke up and thought that we had screwed up by not shooting today but by noon it was howling out there. Excellent call by the WCC weather committee. Be sure to get lots of pics of the ceremony tomorrow Frank...what is your shooter count?
