I hope you had a great Christmas and a happy New Year.
Lauren and I wanted to send a quick note. We spent a couple days in the Bahamas. We saw hundreds of Bonefish, landed 7 and broke 2 off. The biggest was 6 pounds. See attached. As always, thanks so much for your help preparing for this trip. I'll be in soon to talk about Homosassa Tarpon and New Orleans Redfish.
Thanks again.
