We headed right to the deep water and had fish on right away only problem was they were shorts[wallmad]After 14 shorts we had our 1st keeper and things started picking up. In the first 2 hours we must of had 30-35 fish with 6 keepers no monsters but keepers. Wind started picking up and before you know 8oz wouldn't hold bottom [down]. Decided to make a move to where the current wouldn't be running as strong then as I started the motor we heard a bad pulley, sure enough once I climbed into the engine compartment I knew our day was done made the dreaded phone call that no Capt wants to make and waited for our escort back in. The guys were more then understanding and I truely appreciate that it's just something that happens. The shame is we had a good bite going and our day was done before 10am. Small set back I'll be up and running again on Monday small tension pulley is all it is but you need a little guy to fit in there to make the repair and I'm not so little. To the guys that organized it you did a great job I stopped by the weigh in congrats to the winners beautiful fish.

Great job Capt. Eddie! Too bad about the boat! Sounds like a quick repair and you'll be back on the water. Better than having to go to Singapore for 3 weeks on a couple days notice.

Eddie. Thanks for everything yesterday. We managed to get quality fishing time in before your unfortunate mechanical problem. You handled the incident like a true professional. I'm looking forward to going out fishing with you again this year.

Eddie worked hard and had good game plan. The entire time we fished we were steady on fish. I still had a great time with him and everyone else. The mechanical problems were something that nobody would think to check and we hold nothing against Eddie and as Joe said he handled everything good. Thanks for having us[up]
