SBO Emerald Thoughts and Thanks

Just wanted to take a moment to share my my thoughts on this years SBO. First big thanks to Tony Grogan and his crew for pulling it off again. This years economy did not make it easy to participate.

I layed low and focused on the shooters that came out with me. Proud to say that 4 of the guys scored and got prizes. Willem with an impressive 41.4375 pointstook 44th place overall and Sam Renfroe took 2d place Junior with a flat 20. The point is all these guys in the tournament got up and on the water at the crack of dawn, speared all day in rough seas and made it to Tampa the next day to weigh in. I couldn't even pull that off. Too whipped.Too weak!

Happy to see the change of leadership at the top boat. Mike iNewman is well known here for his pinpoint accuracy in the movement and location of the U/W animals. Chicks dig me because I rarely wear underwear, but if I had a nice Dykoke uniform like theirs, I might sport that!

Cool to see local talent Laura Rogers take top honorsl with the lady spearos. She definitely has drive. I expect we'll hear a lot more fish stories from her.

Last, glad to see Republic IV out there. Captain Mike knows this area as well as anyone except Mike Newman and me,of course.(Just kidding Mike. Lighten up!) They have speared their share this year and have been very quiet about it.

Again, Congrats to all of you, East Coasters especially, that had the energy to go the two days.

We'll be in your neck of the woods in a few months and it should make the long weekend a little easier to manage.

Glad you were able to put your team on some fish and participate in the tournament.
