OTA's Week 1

The first mini fishing trip of 2010 produced two nice yellow-fin tuna. It was a short fish day, as Bob's guests were flying in that night for the next day fishing trip. To begin OTAs, (Organized Team Activities), Bob invites high school friend, Sam Young, and friend Todd to kick off the season. Sam and Todd arriving in style as they deplane from naval pilot Sam Young's private plane on Saturday night. Excited for the following day of fishing in the very active waters of Organ Inlet, Sam informed the crew that he had a fishing curse, in which every time he has gone fishing he has never caught a fish. The crew all laughed and told him not to worry- 'tomorrow will be your day'. The next day, the Lizanne set out in 6’ seas, with the wind blowing 15 to 20 knots. Perfect hard-nose North Carolina fishing was the mind set of the crew as the excitement level rose . . .

-6:00am - 12:00pm..........Nothing
-12:00pm – 4:00pm............Nothing

The crew of the Lizanne, Sam, and Todd, pulled into the dock back a Pirates Cove after a long day of fishing. It was official Sam cursed the day of fishing and not only the Lizanne boat, but two thirds of the fleet as well. The crew was without a single knockdown all trip.
