Hope Springs Eternal

Johnny from title town catechizes, "hey old man, what gives with the silent spring?" Well Johnny, to say we've been busy would be somewhat of an understatement, but the time has come to initiate the 2012 campaign on planet blogspot, and what better way to do so than with a depiction disquisition. Lets have a gander...
Early season is generally marked by the appearance of the chain fish, Whitey Bulger, and of course and the kids, coming out of a long and unproductive hibernation. Pictured in this spread are the author, the surfer, and the warden. Although not the sportiest of fisheries in general, Cayo Martha sweet water can be exceptionally fertile and there's no finer way to spend a spring afternoon than playing in the pond.
Of course the national media is bound to take notice. If tippet records for obscure bottom fish and articles in niche mags that explore the particulars of long antiquated bait runs are your thing then clearly we're your guys. But seriously, pretty work all around kids.
And then there's the south Florida experiment. It's been a long hard road for the kids in the sunshine state, but the nut is fractured, and nearing the point where we can deem it cracked. The sound of our knocking on the proverbial door has grown louder and louder and I can say with confidence that a post detailing the circumstances of a grand slam will occur on these pages with in the current decade.
Eventually and inevitably we return to the enclave in the ocean. A warm winter and early spring have brought a healthy crop of frisky striped fish home to roost ahead of schedule this year and we're all looking forward to a fun and productive season. Stay tuned...
