Another 100" Bluefin boated today off Cape Lookout (fish should weigh in around 600 lbs).

A friend & I fished for stripers off Cape Lookout today just a terrific day on the water. Video taken from my Whaler a 210 Ventura on the return trip to Beaufort Inlet.

Dang Tom, you odd-numbered Chiefs have all the fun. Congrats on another great trip and that water looks mighty fine also. I'm stuck at home due to small craft advisories and the Wahoo bite is HOT right now. Such is life and luck...happy new year to you and yours.

John .......

I spent many a day on Guam (as a kid) my Dad was stationed at Anderson in the late 50's. Do you live there permanently or is it job related. Terrific island. By the way are u still using a Navman 6600.

Good luck with the Wahoo fishing!

Thanks ....

Tom

Tom, I still use the NAVMAN 6600 here and its seems to a be a good fit for the water depths and the type of fishing I do. I hung up the khakis after 25 years and moved here. We were assigned here twice on active duty and fell in love with the place. The wife is from here and I found a civilian position with the Navy and the rest is history I suppose. This place has changed sooo much since you were a kid. Matter of fact, it has changed a great deal just in the past 10-15 years with regard to development, population, what there is to do, etc. As you well know, it is a long way from the lower 48 but its getting more and more like the states each day. I thank my lucky stars each day for being able to live on a beautiful island like this.

John your living your dream and that's terrific. You chose a wonderful island to live on. I hung up my khakis in 1998 after 30 years. Wanted to move back to NC and did. I work for East Carolina University as a paid whore (consultant for intructional technology). It was a grand 30 years but it was time to move on. I read that Navman is releasing a new combo unit in 2006 a large screen display similiar to the Garmin 3000 series.

You have a terrific New Year & Tight Lines!

Tom

Thanks for the video insight, I'm definitely going to drop one of the Whalers in the water tomorrow and check out my own piece of the Altantic. Tomorrow's forecast says "South winds 5-10kts, Seas 2' or less, Intracoastal waters a light chop, High near 80°F". Now where did I leave that sunblock?

Definitely a beautiful forecast for the last day of 2005. How ironic that Tropical Storm Zeta formed in the Atlantic today... Good thing she's so far away...
