Had a great time meeting everyone. Boatbuilders are a great group. Internet access is a bit sketchy at the campground. I'll be uploading some video and pictures next week when I'm back at the house. We had a Dolphin come up to the boat and hang out for 20 minutes while we trolled. It was in touching distance. That was very cool.

This was the second King. Put the rod belt on my son and he sat on the live well. I supported the rod for him while he reeled. He kept complaining he was reeling but nothing was happening. He got a kick out of the fish diving when it saw the boat. :)

Team Mad Dog home safe. Too pooped to pop. I'll post up picks tomorrow (sorry CL and PD). Had fifteen people at dinner. And, a good time was had by all.

I probably had that same dolphin hang out at my boat for a while. I imaging he/she makes a comfy living in the summer grabbing culls, undersize fish, and that kind of thing from boats. It's funny to watch them ham it up for the camera.
