GETTING HER ALL SPRUCED UP
I took Sensation over to Jarrett Bay yesterday (check out the photo page) .., first for annual engine maintenance and then haul out for bottom paint, thru hull inspection and running gear maintenance ..., she was happy to be on the water again even for just the short jaunt up the Intracoastal Waterway .., but she'll be much happier, as will you and I, when the sun is shining from blue skies, it's 80 degrees, and we're looking back waiting to see that Dorsal fin pop up behind the left short rigger :)) ...., Spring is gonna be here before you know it and Sensation's booking calendar is beginning to fill so you need to get your calendar out and let's get a day on the books ...., man that warm sun's gonna feel good on that brown skin

AIN'T MUCH GOING ON ..., EXCEPT !!!
It's that time of year here on the Crystal Coast ...., the offshore fishing has slowed down and with this bad spell of weather that has set in we haven't been able to get out the inlet to even bottom fish and the American Red 3 day window opens today thru Sunday but can't get to them ..., maybe since we can't fish NMFS will open it back up later ...., but if you want to catch a GIANT BLUEFIN TUNA we don't have to go very far and Sensation is offering short day trips for $1,000 for the opportunity for you and your pals to catch one of those Sea Monsters ..., Love to see you down here ...., the atmosphere and mood here right now is like Don Henley's lyrics in Boys of Summer ...., let's brighten it up !!

You need to check out the photo page this morning and see what you're missing ..., Captain Thomas Wood and Mate Michael Tickle on the Dancin Outlaw scored big yesterday ....., after a 3 hour battle they finally decked a 400 pound Swordfish and it is quite a feat ....., a version of a Dream Catch I would call it and we all love to have our own Dream Catch :)) ..., as you know we've caught several of those magnificent fish but we're still looking for a Sea Monster like Thomas and Michael caught ...., and we'd love to have you on board the Sensation when we do ..., plenty of days open and Tis the Season to catch Sea Monsters ..., standing by for your call.
