Fished with Ramiro, Marvin and Ray today. Weather was great ... fish were biting ... couldn't have asked for anything more but we sure got a lot more as it was unexpectedly fun today with Tiny trying to speak Spanish and do some of my same stuff I do out there in English and since these guys were Latino it was cool to get to speak some but they wasn't quite ready for it when it busted loose ... I caught shad in just three throws of the net this morning and I said "well ... I guess that just leaves one question to be answered ... they said ... what's that? and I replied "quien es su Papa????" (who's ya daddy?) everyone just busted out laughing cause they wasn't really expecting un gringo such as ole Tiny to crack a joke right off the bat in my busted Spanish. hahaha. Then later on in the day I asked Ramiro how many fish we had in the livewell or how many he could see ... I told Marvin to watch this right before I asked him ... he said all I can see is two ... two bigguns ... I said no ... really ... how many can you see ... so he bends down and starts looking real intently and shwoosh ... I turned the livewell pump on and it made him jump back and Marvin and I were about to roll around in the back of that boat busting a gut when we seen Ramiro jump backerds ... hahaha. Seems like Tiny's routines is much funnier too when he's trying to convert it all into spanish hahaha ... it was a real blast. I forgot to count how many we caught today but it was quite a few with one striper in the bunch. We missed probably twice as many as we caught due to the fish just biting and letting go. I had all kinds of hooks tied on at one point and none of them seemed to catch fish too well today. oh well ... we ended up with a really nice mess of fish ... I guess it's a good thing we didn't catch all that bit else Tiny would still be out there cleaning fish. hahaha. Thanks guys ... it was a really fun trip.
Ramiro with a nice one
