It sure felt good to sleep in my own bed, and wake up with the smell of fresh salt air. Even when my wife and I travel, it’s usually along a coastline. Once the salt gets in your blood, it never gets old.

While I was away, not much on the fishing scene has changed. I received a report from Randy Garner. Garner and I met a little more than a year ago as I was walking the beach near Acapulco Village on the West End of Galveston. I haven’t heard from him in a while, but he came down to his house this past weekend and tried his luck in the surf. He started out throwing Fishbites.

Houston traffic and $20 parking is exactly why GotFishExpo in Galveston is that much more enjoyable.
