It has been a flat week in the lagoon and perfect for everyone without a sailboat, the weather in the 70's and showing the reason we live in paradise. On a more somber note:
We wish to send our thoughts and prayers to a fellow fisherman who lost his life on the Big O he was Nic Kayler 38 an Army Vet who leaves behind a wife and a daughter, Nic was fishing in a FLW tourneyment. Be safe out there and watch out for each other…
