I really liked that hat. I actually lost it later that day when we were rippin' back to the dock. The picture was taken in Mexico, on HOL BOX island. If you've never been, you should go. My guide's name is Alejandro Vega. I highly recommend him. I hooked 11 that day!
I understand Alejandro Vega is a great guide; if you can get him. My buddy booked a couple of days with him, then got the bait and switch to different guide whose outboard motor broke down the first day; the 'new' motor the second day was different brand and the gas tank hose fittings weren't compatible, so it took a couple of hours to fix.
Glad you had a great trip! I'd love to catch some of those 'baby' tarpon. * weight or 9 weight?
