This is What Makes It Worthwhile

We need to thank you for another fabulous fishing trip! I took my daughter Jessica and her college friend Nicole out for a day of fishing yesterday, to celebrate the end of their school year at Christopher Newport University in Virginia. Although Jessica has fished with me before on my trips with you over past years, this was a first time for Nicole, and Orlando and Abram showed them a superb time on the Andrea. We started the day with a double hook-up with both girls in the chairs, and although Nicole's fish was able to throw the hook, it was just a taste of what was to come.
Nicole had a second chance later, I had a good turn, and just before lines-out, the girls were back on deck with a double hook-up again, with both fish brought to the boat and released. In all, we saw nine marlin, hooking up on seven, and catching and releasing five. We could not have asked for better support and effort from both Orlando and Abram, especially as the last two fish took us late into the afternoon---we did not make it back to the marina until 5:00.
Pisces is, as always, the best! I am attaching a couple of photos of all the fun.

Many thanks!
