January 1, 2012 Recap of 2011

Well we had a very good year. We caught 12 citations on the skiff and 20 on the Bluewater. Seven different species. Casey and I both had six different species papers this year. Considering the weather we had with all the wind we did very well indeed. 2011 will be hard to beat. The Bluewater has a formal name now and shall be referred to in the future as the Change of Pez (COP) and the skiff as the COP2. Best of luck to everyone in 2012.
