What's up with that?
I know the answer that you fishermen will give ... "Hey dummy ... Fish like to feed early in the morning. That's the best time to drop your line." Is that true? Do fish really feed earlier in the morning?
And guess what? Today, the best time to fish in St. Pete is 9:42AM - 11:42AM. I'm not sure why fish care about 42 minute segments ... but they apparently do.
By the way ... I had lots of time to check because I overslept. I really got up at 4 AM although my buddies will say I'm lying ... and then ... I fell back asleep until my brother in law Tom called my cell phone at 5:38 to tell me that they were shoving off and ended with a few expletives that the rest of the crew screamed in the background.
I always have problems waking up early in the morning.
Drinking was essential.
After a week, I understood why beer pong was the number one sporting event in Alaska.
We had a great time ... caught plenty of fish every day and even met a few bears along the way. Yes ... bears ... we met in some very remote spots.
We had a very successful outing that morning and headed back to the seaplane to fly back to our camp. The seaplane was old and cramped and had no ventilation.
It was a perfect place for brother Tom to let loose one of his world famous, lethal, gaseous bombs from the very back of the plane.
There was no doubt who did it.
Tom ... of course ... looked perfectly innocent as the entire plane turned to growl at him.
Just then, the guide opened the door of the plane and stepped in. He immediately smelled the foul odor and said ... "Guys ... I forgot to mention ... the mud out here smells awful. You can tell in this plane how bad it is."
Tom smiled and looked out the window.
