I once caught a fish THIS BIG... Tommy here. Jeanne and I took John Burene, sales director at ARROW 100.7 FM in Pensacola, up on his offer to go fishing to promote the upcoming concert in Pesacola on the 6th. I had mentioned in an earlier interview with Lisa Cagle that "I can't believe we are coming so close to Destin and we are not going deep sea fishing!" and that was all I said. John took it to heart and thought "Why not do a live remote from the boat?" and it grew from there. By the time we left this morning at 7:00 am, we had not only several folks from ARROW on board, but 2 of their contest winners, a crew from the local ABC television station and the FOX-TV affiliate as well as the outdoors editor of the newspaper in Mobile. Captain Mike and Frank of "The C. Rose" took us to some CHOICE spots where we proceeded to haul in a massive amount of red snapper, grouper and several other types of fish. Contest winners David and Susie Nolin had a blast, and not just because David caught twice as many fish as everyone else. They are big fans and we had a great time. My best friend Eddie came down from Montgomery and it was his first deep sea fishing experience. And what a good one indeed! In less than 4 hours we had caught our limit and returned to Zeke's Landing where we then hopped on Waverunners and tooled around while the restaurant cleaned and prepared our fish for lunch. Lord have mercy, we worked up quite an appetite and lunch never tasted better. Orange Beach, Alabama is an unbelievable place. It is an emerging community that is holding on to its old fashioned quaintness while serious riverfront houses are going up and getting more and more high end every season. Check it out if you are in the area... In an hour, we are off to yet another adventure I will report later...
Work work work... Well, new things in the name of promo stuff. Beau Roach, who went fishing with us today and arranged for the waverunners, set up our evening for us. Eddie, Jeanne and I went to his game palace, "The Track", where Eddie and I bungie jumped for the first time. It was scary but we did it. Jeanne got all the way up there in the harness and decided she wanted nothing to do with it. We then got hooked up into the harnesses for the "Sky-Coaster". All three of us, side by side, were hoisted face-down, up a 110 foot tower and I pulled the rip-cord. This sent us plunging into a huge arc like a giant vine-swing. After the back-to-back brain rushes, we eased out through an extremely high-tech computer animated driving game. It was quite a day. Tomorrow the rest of the band will meet us in Birmingham for the concert there�
