*sigh*

Every now and then I need a napkin to wipe the egg off my face.

I told everyone to head south and take advantage of what supposed to be some great dipping and I ended up only picking up a few fish.

My information line I call (the commercial hotline), on Tuesday, had a recorded message that, "It is not likely that another EO will be issued for Wednesday."

So I called my buddy (thewhopp) and headed down. Little did I know that while we were mobilizing for our trip that the commercials were in fact issued another EO to allow set and drift gill nets to fish on Wednesday.

Monday's ecapement? 6,000 fish
Tuesday's escapement? 1,000 fish
Wednesday's escapement? 1,000 fish

So now he and I are in the posession of some very, very expensive sockeye.

We did have a good time at our buddies cabin, drowning our sorrows in copious amounts of brew....


Moral of the story? CHECK THAT COMMERCIAL HOTLINE 2x BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE DRIVEWAY AND ONCE MORE BEFORE YOU ARE HALFWAY THERE!
