Hope you land a slot on a good boat Bill, I know the excitement of a 24 or 36 hour opening. The bright side is you don't even realize you've been awake for a day & a half. I'm probably too old now, a skipper would ask my age then pass, I could try dying my hair maybe? I think I could still hang, laying Skates of long line back to back then fishing them in................ I hope you can get on board, a real adventure it is.
