When the wind has not been blowing 15 to 20 knots here in the Florida Keys lately it has been blowing 25 to 30.
One front after another has hampered blue water fishing.
In a classic thread the needle operation yesterday, I was invited by Tom and Billy Chapman with mate Eric to take the 25 mile offshore run in quest of a swordfish.
By evening it was to blow 30 knots and we had a very small envelope to pull the trip off.
We left at 6:30 AM and on our last drift hooked and fought a swordfish to the gaff. Although the sword was not a monster, every morsel will be eaten.
This morning I am paying dues, but knowing how much I hurt it is always worth it and it always will be.
A great crew did a great job getting it done.
I believe I was the only paraplegic T-4 Asia A in a wheelchair way offshore yesterday. It felt great!
Wanted to share this with you.
Have a great weekend.
