Two great names from yesterday. They both helped me, alot, when I was brand new.
No doubt, there are "youngsters" following in their footsteps. That would please them AND keep the goodness, going. That's what life is all about.
I don't fish as much as I want to. I've spent all my time raising my three sons. School football and basketball and AAU in the spring and summer takes up almost all 12 months. It's been a good trade...great times and better memories. Even some fishing g trips, but they were younger, then. Still...I wouldn't trade back, that's for sure.
But I'm on the back side now and it's going to get "lonely" here, in the next few years. Hopefully, I won't be too old to get out to the rigs and beyond. I know I won't think I am. To keep my fishing fires alive, I still check back here, regularly. I'm sad to say, as you guys observe too, there's not as much going on, as there used to be, even during the season. I know Harvey hit millions of people hard, including the TKF team. I applaud my Texas brothers and sisters for their individual and combined efforts, doing all they could do to survive. Keeping TKF afloat had to be way down the list of priorities, but look... they did it. I can't thank you guys enough for finding the time to keep TKF alive.
I guess some have run off to Facebook or whatever. I guess I'm old school. I still don't do those. I struggled when Extreme Coast dropped and I'm sad to see activity decrease here, but I'm still optimistic. I come HERE to see the latest reports with pictures and videos...just like Mythman, Jolly Roger and many others, used to. I'm confident Professor Salt has been readying his vessels and tackle and will be paddling "30 miles", catching fish and going through the extra efforts to video and produce videos , soon.
Temperatures are warming. Please...keep the good thing going, here. Be safe...tight lines!
