I ALMOST PUT MY FOOT IN THIS GUYS HOUSE

ALL THIS FISHING MADE ME HUNGRY SO I HAD MY SURVIVOR MAN LUNCH

OVER ALL IT WAS A GREAT OUTING, THE WILD LIFE WAS AMAZING, I GOT TO SPEND TIME WITH MY LOVELY WIFE AND CELEBRATE HER BIRTHDAY, AND A LITTLE FISHING IN BETWEEN. I LEFT HOME FEELING RE-ENERGIZED, I RECOMMEND FISHING TO ANYONE WHO'S STRESSED WITH LIFE'S EVERYDAY GRIND, YOU WILL LIVE LONGER AND BE HAPPIER, SEE YOU OUT THERE.

Very nice report and pics...but where is your wife? Did she not fish with you?
When my wife and I stayed at the Montage in Laguna beach I was lucky enough to fish with my wife one day, even though she preferred the day spa...:Smile:

i dont know if this is where he got them, but pretty much across the street from there in la conchita, theres always a sign on the side of the road advertising fresh lobsters for sale.
