Our meeting for this event was hosted by Nautical Mile Marine. Specail thanks to Chris Knight and all the fine folks on his crew. They always make us feel at home. Rob Graham (our chaplin) spoke about being the kind of man/woman we should be. We all fail, we all can do better, we all need God's help being a spouse, son, daughter, friend, employee etc. Even with our failures God loves us and sent his son to die for us! Amazing.
The word for the morning was FOG! Anglers had to endure a 4 hour delay due to heavy fog before they got started. The front came through though, and the fog lifted as the temps dropped by 15 degrees at 11:15 am! Weigh-in was pushed back to 5 pm.
