    Gigging around

    Have you ever wanted to do something for years & never seem to have the time to do it? Or for that matter have the money to do it? Well check this out. The Lord blessed me Friday with a first time ever gigging trip. I have been wanting to do this for the last 25yrs. Went to Galveston on a guided trip with Capt Scott McKey ( & his good friend Brian. They took me & a friend, Charlie, gigging. We gigged 30 flounder in about 3 1/2 hrs. This was also the first time I have ever gotten my limit in the 30 plus yrs I have been fishing. What a wonderful night - I was truly blessed.

    I am a big fan of flounder
    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
