What do you get when you take 26 people from all walks of life, different nationalities, different cultures, countries, and financial status & what ever else differences you can think of? Stick them in a tin can on the ocean for 5 days with a crew of people you don't know on top of it? With only a couple of known interests? ... You get OHANA...Family Grin You could not have picked a more diverse selection of human beings to be in one place at the same time no mater how hard you tried and have it come together so well, so respectful,with so much dignity  & respect for each other, and some how Alan T. pulled it off. Somehow I m speechless...And everyone on the SOA trip will tell you that I am not speechless. Thank you Alan...Today I feel very blessed

Yep, there are no strangers on the boats, just friends I haven't met yet.

Not only did he get the bass, but he got a 40#  +/- Grouper on the same reel with a megabait lure...We killed them with megabaits that Alan gave us!!!

It looks like a great trip! The picture of Alan with a spinner is one for the record. Too bad it isn't a Penn. Next time I will see that he has a proper spinner! Sal will not be pleased!  Grin Grin Grin I can't wait to see more.   Bob

Schweet Video, I like it without an annoying sountrack.  
That looks like pretty good time being had there.

Big Tim,

Thanx for getting these pictures up as soon as you did. I know you guys were tired after getting home so thanx again. Alan, thanx for the video and I finally heard some voices of the people that we communicate with in this virtual "shop" on a regular basis with. Alan I nominate the picture of you with the Accurate spinner as PICTURE OF THE MONTH! Cant wait to see more (especially of ALL the tackle). This should be a fond memory to last a lifetime. IM DEFINITELY LIVING THROUGH YOU GUYS TRIP, since I didnt go. Im glad everyone returned safe and sound. BTW, I couldnt help but notice that some of you were wearing your "Sunday go to meeting" fishing clothes (ie Columbia PFG), If I had gone I would have had mine as well. Grin

MORE PICTURES PLEASE,

Leo
