The crew consisted of Alec Newton and my Family - Pam, Ben, Paul, and Luke Miller. We fished around FH-13 and some shrimp boats and an oil rig to the southeast. We caught a nice variety of fish which was highlighted by Alex's 35 pound cobia. Pam was impressed with the variety of fish and counted 17 different species that we landed. Ben and I dove the Kay Eckstein, but visibilty went to zero below 70 feet which rendered the dive useless since Katrina seems to have scoured the Tug into the bottom ten or more feet. We redeemed it with a Rig Dive which was quite nice. Total Trip encompassed 75 miles and 13 hours.
