DOWN TIME (for now!)
Got home around 2:00 p.m. Friday, after flying from Hartford, CT, to Baltimore, then changing planes in Baltimore and flying to Fort Lauderdale. Was up since 2:45 a.m., as we were set to leave the hotel at 3:30a.m. Again, I thoroughly enjoyed my trip up north. A huge thank you to Kevin Tierney and Steve (Mr. Miller) Miller – who are among the very best fishing videographers in the business - not so much for their talents (which I really appreciate), but for always putting up with my stubbornness to keep fishing all day long – even when they have more than enough fishing footage in the can for a great episode.
Now, a nice, relaxing weekend in store! Took the girls out for dinner on Friday night, and then just got back - per tradition - from the local Starbucks with my eldest daughter Lindsay and her husband (Aaron) -- guess who gets stuck picking up that tab every Saturday!
Keeping a very close eye on the weather for the Keys next week, as I’m thinking seriously about trailering down my Mako 284 and fishing around Big Pine Key – if the winds appear as if they’ll break and that storm just west of Cuba will keep away. I’d get back up here by Thursday night, and be ready to spend Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show. And most of that time (10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.) will be spent in the Mako booth, signing and giving out Mako hats.
