The part in the above quote "you will be hired first" Wes, it's BS. Not starting a fight, but the entire thing from what I know has been a learning process, if you were lucky, you got hired, if not, you didn't.

I took a day off last Saturday and went fishing in the bay with a friend. It was rough out front, so the 16'Horn was not up to the 3-4' seas. We started fishing in on area close to Ft. Pickens, and 2 ratty looking boats with funny flags came barrelling in 50' away and were just gawking. They looked as if they had never seen a fishing rod. The starred until I started starring back. If that is the function of the inshore task forces, I hope none are re-activated.

The whole system is BS. I dont blame any of the locals, I blame BP, and the cock suckers that dont live in Pensacola Florida. Any one that is working for Bp and doesnt live In the Pensacola area is CROOK and I HOPE YOUR BOAT BLOWS UP. Good karma, Not your motor, your boat.

PINKSNAPPER, what exactly did you do to make your money on the water. And why are you having someone else run your boat not you. I am sincerely just asking so don't jump my ass.

I know two people who havent picked up a fishing pole in years and they have their boat in it. I dont know about yall but it makes me sick that these guys are getting paid this kind of money when there are people who earn their livings on the water that have never been called.

JMH -I agree with you. I am licensed and have a boat but since I have not been using my license in the last few years I did not want to take someone's place with a family that depends on the income.
