OS 1272: Great Guests and Bad Weather

Happy Memorial Day! Before anything else, we would all like to express our gratitude to the men and women of the US Armed Forces who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom…and to their families as well.  Thank you!

With Jeff out of commission due to some surgery (get well soon, brother…you’re in our thoughts and prayers), Capt. Kevin and Capt. Kirk had an empty chair to fill.  So they called on a couple good friends to sit in: Dave Edwards and Gemlux Marine Hardware CEO Matt Bridgewater.  They talked about fishing trends, snapper regs, holiday boating goofiness, and shared an amazing white marlin fishing experience in the Bahamas.

But the lead’s getting buried a little bit, so here it is: what the what’s going on with the weather?  Wind gusts up to 50, ridiculous tides, sideways buckets of rain…is there any end to this nonsense?

Throw in lots of great callers (and a couple questionable jokes from Top Gun and Papa G), and you’ve got a great episode to check out!
