I don"t contend with the Comm folks, bizness is bizness, and our "Spiney's" are caught under much better conditions then down in Central and South America. Divers die or are injured all the time to help keep Red Lobster, Etc. full to the gills with profit.

But just for the experience I went "Hooping" a few times to check out what that whole scene was like? Well we two took out 1 skiff with 2 kayaks and 14 Hoops. Launch'd the Yaks from the skiff and hit the early season shallows (PV). We Killed it! Double limits plus in 2 hours. Effortless!

Hooping boats were out there all around, chumming, partying, and gettin" bugs...

I feel a limit on hooping is in order, 2 cents... Thanks Chris.
