What a great crew I had today! We started at BB looking for bait. We found some, but they were small and not real thick. We caught about 30 and headed out to BR. We anchored up and started catching fish right away. The crew was catching triggerfish, beeliners, and sea bass uncontrollably till the tide started to change. Using double rigs, there were several double headers landed. Some of the doubles included sea bass / beeliner, sea bass / triggerfish, beeliner / triggerfish. You never knew what was coming over the rail next. We caught a couple nice amberjack and lost a couple monsters before calling it a day. It was a really nice day offshore today, with fairly calm seas, overcast sky, and a slight breeze to keep it from getting too hot. Thanks for a great day, I enjoyed the company and the laughs. It was enjoyable to watch. I know you guys will enjoy the fine dining Doug has in store for you! The catch of the day was a 4 foot Tiger Shark Doug caught 4 times. Each time he got him to the boat, the shark would run 100 feet out.
Captain Chad did a terrific job. What he did not mention is that Doug is blind and the captain provided him with every possible assistance and support. If you are considering a trip off-shore you would be well advised to consider TeamBuckRogers.

Chad thank you for a great day and making that extra effort to make Doug's day special. He provided great assistance in the kitchen after we got home fileting everything we caught. What he didn't do was to give me instructions on how to keep from going to the emergency room for 4 stitches in my finger from a slice while assisting him in the kitchen. All in all I can't wait to go again. Thanks again and good luck in the tournament this week. Sandi
