Al, I would probably be casting to see if you provided good structure.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Well fellas as of this sunday I will be gone. Just for a week and will be back. Going on a cruise to the Bahamas with wife n kids (5 females) wish me luck please. Might do some fishing there. But my plan involves some sort of diving. I hope you all have a wonderful start to the new year also.

I did that on my first time cruse. Islanders live on island time and even though your watch may read the same as theirs they might cause you to miss your cruse departure time. Yah Man, it's island time!

We did some trolling on the 1st cruise and diving on the 2nd. I prefer the diving I can fish here anytime. Yes always have to be very aware of the time.

We will do. Kinda dreading the drive. 12 hours with queen bee n 18,17 and two 11 years olds. But once we get aboard 7 days of someone cooking n cleaning for us. My wife runs daycare so those 2 things are constant for us.

Careful. Short term vacationing in exotic places can lead to this. Three months per winter, so I can vouch for it being addictive.

I'm in Snrub. What's the dow side of it. Besides the cost of course. I see no reason to be careful we try to go somewhere every year. Its EXPENSIVE when you take your kids along.

Midnight Dec 31 at the "big pond".

New year celebration is a HUGE deal here. Fireworks like in the picture going off all up and down the west coast of the island.

That's one addiction I welcome. Made it to New Orleans getting on boat tomorrow. New years eve would have been cool for sure but twice the money on a cruise.

What the heck is that, Rusto?

I've never seen or heard of that.

They are basically a cross between a mini bike and submarine. Your head is in a glass bubble. They were as much fun as you can have with your clothes on lol.

They had air tanks connected to them. The line that is on the top of them is connected to a bouy. The line where 20 feet long. Thats so the person on the boat can keep track of everyone. They was freaking awesome. They weren't real fast (bout a brisk walking speed). Kinda like a scooter underwater. We was down just over an hour.

I have been on 3 now and love them. My wife isnt into being cold so Alaska wont be happening. I think it would be a enjoyable one to go on. Are you going out of the Seattle port?

Seattle? Yep. I know the town pretty well. Compared to West Texas, it’s nature gone nuts due to never ending rain. On nice days, people there say “Enjoy the sun.” Instead of “ Have a nice day.”

Granddaughter married a Navy Submariner and they were there for about 14 years. Since they are now in Hawaii, I expect it will be our last time there.

Once, in a cafe the waitress asked where I was from. My accent clued her. When I said Texas, she immediately asked if I owned a gun. I said more like 30 or 40. She had never met a gun owner and had a lot of questions. Different world there.
