Thanks Larry and it's never too late Frank! My pops is coming down with us and he's 71 with creaky knees and one replacement hip. I'm actually hoping the warm water will do his joints some good and it will be his first tropical fishing trip ever after decades of UK trout and the occasional salmon and sea trout adventure.
I'm really looking forward to showing him what I enjoy doing and getting him hooked into some of the glamour species.
Mind you getting him in and out of the boat will be an adventure all in itself - LOL!
Happy New Year to everyone!
