Ive actually seen guys like this (back in the late 80s and early 90s)! They travel in packs and think they are so cool. Its so funny... This one was Jim Carey in it too. LOVE IT!
I will first tell you it was a lot of fun. But it is PRICEY. Our 10 hour trip was $1,500.00 (FIFTEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS) plus a $100. tip.
But very worthwhile! We got 200 pounds of delicious fish and had a great experience.
The company that we used is called High Bid Charters (Because the boat is called "THE HIGH BID". Ive added a link to their site. The captain (Aaron) was great. He was a lot of fun. They completely take care of you, bait the hooks, help you reel them in, explain everything, you can go down inside to the living area and it has Air Conditioning and a bathroom and a small kitchen. Its really nice. We went 50 miles out, and were out for 10 hours. You cant wear shoes with black soles and cant bring drinks in Glass Bottles. You must bring your own food in a cooler as well.
It rained for a little while, but then the sun came out and it was beautiful. They play cool music and you go fast! (Hang on!) We fished near Off shore drilling rigs because the fish like to hang out near the rigs (un manned natural gas rigs) because of the coral that grows on the pipes and attracts lots of fish. Okay. Is that enough info? Email them or call Capt Aaron or Brian for more info. Heres the link to their site.
If you are interested in catching Blue Marlin or Shark, you need to tell them that on the phone when you book it.It cost a little more and they have to go farther out to sea for that. (were doing that next year.)
Here is a video of my son catching a King Fish. It wasnt his biggest fish, He caught a 36 lb. Ling. But this is him reeling in a 21 pound King fish. Hes the boy wearing the Cowboy Hat.
Click on the little arrow above on the left.
So he decided to let photographers write some of the cartoons and he published the ones he liked best. He published all 3 of mine that i sent in.
Hes really funny. The video below is one of his that has actually been animated now.
Only photographers really understand them. But I bet anyone would like the one below.

I wanted to post this image. I shot this while we were 30 miles out to sea in the Gulf of Mexico.
My son and his friend Kody are holding two LING fish that weigh over 35 pounds each.
It was a great day.
Next year we are going for Blue Marlin and Sailfish. For the total that day they caught over 200 pounds. Red Snapper, LING and King Fish. It was fun. I miss the sunshine too. It was beautiful weather there.

I just wanted to let you know that I won 2 Blue Ribbons in the Photography competition on Tuesday.
One Distinguished Print Ribbons went to my Alien photo won and a 2nd Ribbon went to a romantic image of a young lady. My other two images got decent scores, but not as well as "Which way to Roswell" and "Enigma".
We had a great time. It only took us 10 hours to get home though! The rain down from the Coast all the way to W.F. was bad and all the rivers swollen to capacity, but the Good Lord protected us.
Just a side note, When the image of the Aliens were judged, the judges laughed out loud and the score was given out with an Alien voice, which again made everyone laugh. Everyone said it was
"refreshing" and "humorous". I also received 3 Silver Bars from the Texas Association. That means I have acquired 75 more points. Its always scary to go up on stage in front of hundreds of people, but it was exhilarating!
Thanks for all your pats on the back.

This summer my family and I are going on a deep sea fishing trip.
We are going 25 miles off into the Gulf of Mexico to catch Sailfish, Blue Marlin & Mahi Mahi and possibly even shark.
It's a 12 hour trip way off the coast.
I'll be sure and post imagaes of what we catch and see out there.
The boat is skippered by Capt Brian and Cody who know the waters of the Gulf like the back of their hand.
Only a few more days until the fun begins.
It's a 35 foot Cabo, with AC, Tv, Stereo, Galley and Head.
We will have guys to bait our lines and to help with the catch. Here is a recent photo from the guys who own the boat.
They caught a WHITE MARLIN.

Watching the sun glisten on the pool water. Watching my new friend the 1 inch long Caterpillar and the way that the sun set and the sky turned purple above me, until the purple gave way to deep blue and then black. Then my husband came outside to see if i was okay. (And brought me a drumstick ice cream and sat with me as I listened to the cricketts chirping and the water babling in a fountain near me.
