Welcome baby Ayla!

 After a long wait and what felt like an even longer labor, baby Ayla arrived on September 9th at 10:29 am!  She came in at 7 pounds 9 ounces and 20 inches long. Samantha and I are ecstatic  to have this wonderful baby girl in our lives.  Thank you to all of the nurses, doctors, midwives and family friends who have helped us so much along the way.  We couldn't have done it without you!  We can't wait to take Ayla on her first boat ride!  Needless to say I haven't been out on the water much lately.  I did get to take some friends from Coppertail brewing out during Brewfest for a nice half day.  We caught a few nice bottom fish in the deep water.  The weather was perfect for drifting live baits and the fish were on them until the tide changed at around 11am.  There has been some current out near the reef making the fishing more productive for yellowtail snapper,muttons and grouper.  Offshore there have been a few nice weedlines producing dolphin, a mix of blackfin and skipjack tuna, and an occasional wahoo.  I can't wait to get back out when we get settled in with our new baby girl!
