    First, thanks for the effort(over the years) - it's more important than most realize. My next question is . . . since so many could miss this event is there anyway to podcast it for those of us who might not be able to make it?

    Rodz, thanks for the interesting idea. If I did podcast my club's talk, people would not show up, and I really need a good crowd to justify my free use of the tiki bar at Boston's Johnny's. You all should put in the effort to show up for these free meetings, lots of good info from both the speakers and the audience, free prizes and a great bunch of people. Commute with your fishing buddies and take turns as DD. I drive down to Coral Gables twice a week, with a stop in VA key, from Hollywood and the ride is not that bad. cheers, O

    Arthur, very informative as usual! I installed Julio's app this morning & cannot wait to get out on the water to put it to use. I've toyed around with it a bit & can see some of my spots off Hollywood plus some other that I'd like to check out. Can you provide some more info about the program where the students are looking for fish & carcases? Again thanks for putting it together & thanks to your sponsors for the goodies! See you next month.

    Ryan, THANKS! It was good to see U on Wed night. Here is the requested info for fish samples needed by grad students for their research. The club has been helping them out but fishing was slow in Jan. cheers, O

    A fishery research group at Nova SE U Oceanographic Center need all of the following species that should be frozen if you can not arrange pick up for fresh samples. ***Please record Date, time, capture location, and contact info for the person donating the specimen(s)*** Please call Dave at 804-854-9030 or email [email protected]

    WHOLE SAMPLES: Threadfin herring, Filefish, Barracuda, Flying fish, Lionfish, Lookdowns, Ceros

    They are also looking for racks/carcasses (with guts) of the following, especially large fish: Atlantic bonito, Blackfin Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Skipjack, Frigate Mackerel, Tripletail, any Jack species (for example, AJ, Almaco). Finally, they would love small fin clips -- about 1 square inch or so -- from any sailfish, blue marlin, spearfish, or white marlin caught in the Straits.
