    If I may so rudely interject, here are some of my pics from the trip I said I'd post.

    Look at that thing, Skeet told me it was OK to touch, NOT! It's got spines all over. Rouch.

    This one Tim said not to touch at all, looks primitive don't it. Lizard fish I'm told.

    And you prolly seen this pic, Tim posted it. Great pic, super nice fish. Touched 20 inches. Great fishing with you Tim.

    So here's how our part of the fishing trip went. Tim caught one 17 incher right off the bat. And then it slowed down (relatively speaking). We caught some of those strange fish. Tim caught another smaller (maybe 15 inches) Trout. But then we hit a spot where it was one after another. Crazy catching. But also smalls.

    That slowed, so we drifted down a bit and found a hole. Tim killed them there. And I mean killed them. And they were all keeper size. WOW
    I could not buy a bite. The only thing I can think of is, he had braid, and I had mono, and with the current, I could not get my line down where he was catching them. On top of the fact his casts were longer. I had crappie fishing gear! Doh. But even when the guber set up his other rod for me, and me using his gear, I could not catch one. Crazy. It was just Tims day I guess. He had the Midas touch.

    So then it was getting close to leaving time, and we decided to drift. And then I clobbered a few. Yay me! Finally. And these beasts fight like crazy. It was so much fun. The one I caught that was roughly 20 inches long had it's head at the surface just shaking it wildly while I was reeling it in. I've never seen anything like it. Great trip.

    The restaurant was a pretty cool place. Turns out, I had been there before. I had brought relatives there while touring the West Coast.

    The food was awesome. Up2 brought Snapper, Popano and Crappie too. And we of course had fresh Speckled Trout.

    So here's the end to my little picture story. This was a Win, Win, Win, Win scenario! We fished, we ate, and we shared. The left over Speckled Trout were dropped off at Shu's house on my way home. And yesterday he stopped by my house with a small bag of the fillets which I bought to my mom. See, win, win, win, win. Up2, the good stuff that happened in this little Christmas outing went a long way, and you prolly did not even know it.

    And to cap at least my part of the story....

    Mom approves of our catch. Thanks go to Up2specks for putting us on the fish and Skeetbum for catching the fish and Shu for cleaning the fish. And also to crappie king and queen for the accompaniment.

    Yes I know skeet and Vic cleaned the ones we ate so they get even more thanks. And Up2specks brought the other salt water filets. So more thanks. Thanks thanks thanks. Merry Christmas.
