After 4 1/2 years of hard work and a large personal monetary contribution, including a lot of sweat and tears, Wahoo Bob has deployed the first F.A.D. (fish aggregating device) off the coast of Tres Cocos. It was deployed yesterday afternoon (Sunday).Its about 10 miles out.If I didn't have eleven hundred Xmas lights on my verandah I could see it from here in the night.
After an inspection today Dorado were breeching in the vicinity.
I will post the GPS coordinates soon.
He told me but I spaced them.
Sorry
More coming in the near future.
Jim

Rick
This is the first F A D in Belize waters.
It probably cost, from start to finish, $20k usd.
This has nothing to do with inside the reef fishing.

Hey Bill
I get a lotta sun everyday.
Ask Mash how long it took them to fix the small barge that was dragged out to set this thing.
They were still welding on it tonight-48 hours later.

Ivan (Russo) caught 30 blue fin tuna in 30 minutes at the F.A.D. yesterday.
Everyone is gassing up and heading in that direction.
Hey Wahoo Bob---It Works!!!!!!
