so, ed is in because i 'm not letting him off the hook.  i don't care what his wife says.  don and hank are on the list now because i screwed up on the last trip and i have to make amends, and randy and jad are on the first-timer's list because they pinged me and asked.  the rest of you guys?  i'll get in touch as soon as i can.  remember joel couldn't make it for 2018 because he had a wedding to go to.  mark thoman actually went fishing on another boat!  can you believe that?  and bill had the nerve to get cancer.  yeah, it was the same excuse i used for 2017.   i guess he gets a pass. 

yup, lots of phone calls to make!

If the 2019 trip will be later in October or early in November I might be able to make it.  I'm signed up for the Phenix 10 on the Excel from 9/29 - 10/9 and the Merritt 10 day charter from 11/6 - 11/16.  I would bail on the Merritt trip for you guys.  It's the one last year where I caught a 298# and a 321# YFT!

skip the phenix trip and come with us.  we will likely be the second week in august again.  (correction, october!!!!)

Mid August works better for me, on top of cleaning gear and putting fish up I had fall things to do, all of the leaves fell out of the trees in 3 days.

3K is a little steep considering I have to do something huge for the wife's 40th B-day in mid October!

Involvement vs commitment is like ham and eggs, the hen is involved and the pig is committed. Im committed to the Phenix 10 day on the Excel! If the SoA can work with that then Im in, if not... well, Im not.

I want to go but decided to take my family on a vacation trip next year, but plan on me going the following year.

Fishing 50# braid with 35# fluoro for yellowfin and yellowtail was a blast. But fishing 80# braid with 60# top 60# for yellowtail was putting on the meat fast. Nothing like pushing up the drag so the fish cant run and winching them in. Hahaha. They never stood a chance.

I think you should run 2 trips Alan. This trip format is the best. Relaxing and fun. No combat fishing. Everyone working together. Saw offs are normally accidents not on purpose. Sawing someone off for their own catch only takes away from everyone.

Not to mention, great bunch of guys.

I'm delighted to be again on the list. Nothing-as Alan Knows-is worse than going through cancer treatment and missing a fishing trip. I figure at 15lbs. lighter, I'll be moving faster so think I'll try a jig stick. Better hit the gym a little as well.

I tell others who complain about being out of shape that theyre in shape because round is a shape. It isnt usually appreciated either even, or maybe especially, if its true.

 If this SoA trip isn't moved to November, I'm going to have to give up my spot for the October trip. My stepson just got engaged and the bride-to-be picked October 19th for the Big Day! On or about that date I'd been planning on reeling in a nice wahoo (or three) off Alijos. Who the heck gets married in October?
 They are both great people, in their 30's, successful careers going, 1st marriage for both. And her Dad is a retired doctor who owns 1600 acres of prime deer hunting land only about 25 miles away. I plan to stay on his good side.
So showing up for the wedding with shoelaces tied and my pants zipped up is step one. And reasonably sober!
 I'm hoping for an SoA date change to November 'cause I sure can't change the wedding date. If not, some lucky standby person owes my future stepdaughter a vote of thanks. And maybe a toaster (or a Mak 20).
But let me be the 1st to sign up for 2020.

I'll just have to give you a double dose of good natured grief and insults at Cedros in September, squid!
The SoA trip is probably my favorite fishing excursion. Great people and (generally) great fishing is a great combo. You may not miss me, but I'll sure miss the trip.
