My Father In Law was visiting from Kansas this week and I wanted to get him out

for a deep drop so he could bring some fresh fish back home. After several calls on

monday and tuesday, I was able to get us on the Jill Carrie w/ Capt. Jim Brincefield

after he had a late cancellation.

We departed Long Bay Point at 0115 hrs and went straight for the Grouper spots

around Norfolk Canyon. There were large swells left from the previous days gale

but it an awesome ride out and glassy the rest of the day. It was non-stop reeling

in water over 600', we caught tons of sharks, several Barrel fish, wreck fish, Ling

cod, a red to be identified fish and some monster eels. Late in the day we went

inshore some and slayed the Sea Bass and a couple of Tile fish. I got my first

citation for the year, a 5 lb 2oz Sea Bass. My father in law is 86 years old and

hung in there with me all day, he reeled in some sea bass, saw some whales and

dolphin and got a lot of great pics to show his friends back home.

Capt. Jim, thanks for the great arm burning trip and the offer to tow my Jet Ski

out with us, I don't want a tow but I do plan on taking it out this summer. Maybe

you can carry some fuel and my lunch. Ha!

The first pic is me and my father in law.
