This was a Charter by Omar Vasquez of Gulfport. He is becoming a regular and brought along Liz Deuel and Mike Findeisen, both of Ocean Springs, as well as Pete Virden of Hattiesburg. I brought 2 of my 3 boys, Paul (18) and Luke (16). We originally planned for opening day, but the 14 knot winds pushed us to delay to the next day. We had some squalish weather in the begining but it turned out very nice by mid-day. Liz seemed to have the hot hand as she kept reeling them in the big ones. Mike made up for it with a very nice 20 pound Warsaw Grouper, and Pete showed his stuff with a 20 pound Gag Grouper. Omar brought up the slack by poking the Red Snapper underwater. We visited FH-13 initially and then ran out to MP203 which is scheduled to be removed under the Idle Iron project. We wanted to document what a terrible project this is that destroys so much marine habitat. It's just like our Federal Government to have one department protect the very things another department is out to destroy. Such a conflict of interest and waste of tax payer dollars.It was a grand day that encompassed 103 nautical miles, 12 hours, and 70 gallons of fuel.
