My buddy Oscar is transferring today to California. He has been a huge contributor to this site. He has bought and sold more kayaks than anyone I've known and probably fished with and met or helped in some way almost everyone on this forum. Oscar been great to fish with and share stories. He is more than willing to help anybody and never expects anything in return. I wish we could of fished more lately but it just didn't work out. Good luck buddy and we hope to see you back in Florida one day but make sure you hone your fishing skills so I'm not always catching more fish than you , lol. :thumbup: When you're ready to come back for a visit, I'll have an extra room for ya. Oh and I don't think you can fit a rod and reel in your sea bag on the USS Boxer. Safe travels!
