Somebody turned the switch back to the "ON" position... waves started rolling through this afternoon and the tide looks like it will co-operate for the next couple of days. It's looking like our last two surf days might be fun ones. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed.

If you don't know, that's the head of a wahoo. Those teeth are like scalpels. No joke. My friend Tim Hatler has speared 'em up to 80 lbs (that's no joke either) and he's told me that it isn't usually when the fish is alive that you get bit. Most of the slices come from a slip of the hand into a dead wahoo's mouth. Most times, the victim doesn't even know they're cut until they see their own blood dripping off onto the floor. Watch it!
