"Be down at the docks at 5:30," he admonished me. "Oh, by the way," he added, "you don't get seasick do you?" As a matter of fact, I have never been seasick, although I've been in some pretty rough seas on Pamlico Sound. I conveyed firm assurances of my stomach's hardiness lest the invitation be withdrawn.
Capt. Ernie Doshier and his mate, Rob, provided an outstanding full day experience. I even reeled in a respectable sized dolphinfish. Since this was my first off-shore fishing adventure, Capt. Ernie wanted to be sure to get a photo to prove that I was now a true fisherman.
Look for more about the fishing trip, several other photos, and more observations about the Gulf Stream in upcoming posts.

Oh, by the way, I did not get seasick.
