Real TR, really fishing, like those swimmy things in the water.
Gambling TR next weekend......
Headed down to Destin FL tomorrow to do some fishing.
Going out with a company/crew/boat that I've been out with many times before.
Just a head boat / party boat, not a private charter or anything.
Red snapper season is open till the 15th, Gag Grouper opened on the 1st.
Both open at the same time for the first time in many years (special circumstance).
So I'm driving 8 hours each way, staying a night or two in a flea bag motel,
so I can ride a couple hours out into the ocean, fish for 3-4 hours,
And ride back in for a couple of hours.
Gonna be mid 90's heat and sun,
Or I'm standing in a thunderstorm with a graphite rod in my hand.
I'm excited as hell!

Sounds like fun! Good luck with the fishing! Don't forget your sunscreen! Esp ears and back of neck. Re-apply every 2-3 hours.

My husband has taken the kids a couple of times. They loved it. I opted to stay home. ;) They did bring back 20 salmon for me to debone - that took a few hours! :/

Sounds great! I use to work on a fishing show in NC. Had some great times having some beers while riding out to a fishing spot, video tapping for awhile then beers on the way back. Crap pay but good times!

Trip report cancelled, actually trip cancelled. I got all excited about going yesterday, then did a cost/benefit (pain/pleasure) analysis this AM.
Hooking the big ones is a rush. It's a bit like sex, or playing w/some really dangerous drugs (or so I've been told, 'ahem').
Or that rush from a winning streak at the tables, or machines.....
I've already been out in deep water a couple times this year, had pretty good results both times.
But both trips coincided with family vacation weeks, this one was going to be a selfish, solo, expense of time/money/energy.
I've done a number of those trips in the last couple years, it's a long drive down, and a longer drive back.
I wanted to shake the hand of the 1st Mate, a buddy of mine, who just became a first time dad with a new baby boy!
But alas, I will stay home this weekend. Probably safer for everyone involved, especially the fish ;-(

Next weekend is a Gamblin trip. Actually it's a wedding anniversary trip (14 yrs this time, a new record) with maybe a little Gamblin thrown in.
Even if it's free cash offers, I feel like you need to run them thru one time just to be polite ;-)
Cheers!

Extremely well played.

He should have posted a TR, anyway. Posting it without actually fishing would be no different from the fishing reports of most people, as they say, "Early to bed, early to rise, fish like Hell, and make up lies."

I could post older reports, a couple from this year, if that would help?
I booked yesterday, backed out today, came to my senses perhaps. Perhaps not, I get it wrong about as often as I get it right ;-)
Destin Fl April 2015
Daytona Fl June 2015
Destin FL July 2015 (cancelled)
Myrtle Beach SC - Aug 2015 (can't cancel that one, big party)

6 trips last year, including HI. Not counting AK cause I didn't get to fish there ;-)

None of which has anything to with gambling, well except for a couple of the FL trips, well and the SC trip, and the AK trip.
I did not gamble in Hawaii, I was there to bury my brother. (But I did fish one day ;-) OK, it was two days.....

I'm sorry to hear about your brother. I believe Hawaii may be one of the few states with no form of gambling, but could be wrong. There are definitely no casinos.

Damn! I attempted to post a response. Both to Mission's statement that I should have posted a TR anyway, and to Mission's condolences about my brother.
It was long, it was beautiful, it had the beauty that is Hawaii. I'm talking naked women (and men), gorgeous waters and big fish, unbelievably gorgeous landscape, Puff the Magic Dragon, Elizabeth Tayler's sons, the Valley House. It was 20 pages long ( Ok it was 2 or 3 ). It would have made some of you cry, some others laugh, it was good......
And then the power blinked, or I hit the wrong button, or something. ......poof

I did not head out on a fishing trip today, maybe I should have.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Hawaii is a pretty great place to spend the last of your days though (I grew up there).

You're right, Mission... no legal gambling in Hawaii. I'm sure there are underground card rooms in Chinatown. So many asians in Hawaii and they do have a long standing love of gambling! This is also why Vegas is jokingly referred to by Hawaii residents as the "9th Hawaiian island". ;)
