Cancelled flight, another fishing trip!

Emilio had a Thursday afternoon flight on Frontier Airlines to Islip, which was delayed, delayed and after 8 hours at the airport, cancelled until Saturday.  His boat was packed up and he had nothing to do, so it was off at 2 on my boat.  It was gorgeous until we started loading my boat and there were bad storms to the South, I thought we could skirt them and we did for a while.  Then it was like the Indians surrounding the Cowboys, there was no escaping.  I think we ran more than we fished, Emilio put a beautiful 14 lb. Black Drum in the boat and lost probably a larger one or a Snook.  It wasn’t a good day for me only landing a Jack and a few Snappers.  We called it at 5 as there were too many bolts of lightning and it was getting really scary.  Glad I could put Emilio on a nice fish and enjoyed his company.
