One!

Given the diversity of the human species, there is no “normal” human genome sequence. We are all mutants.

OK, I received the bad news yesterday, need rotator cuff repair,
Never have done this tuna trip before my question is this , should I still go on this trip ? , it's my left shoulder and tuff it out ...
Or fix it asap for the fall run (Vineyard Oct , RI )

Pete the one thing i can say is you may want to wait till winter for that surgery, 2 years ago i had my left arm ripped of, rotator cuff, labium, bicept, triceps and delt. I took a few pills and finished the season as it was a slow recovery for me and the physical therapy was painful. I may have had more damage i dont know, but the moral of the story is, if you want to enjoy the fall run and this trip dont get the surgery till after, you will thank yourself later.

med up for the rest of the season and get sliced in november. if you are worried about this trip you could always get a aftco shoulder style harness. it would take the pressure off your shoulder and transfer it to your torso

my 1st wife didn't like me fishing so much

1. Fix it ASAP and absolutely ruin everything the surgery accomplished by doing too much too quickly ie. fall run.

Or.

2. Have it done over the winter with plenty of time to heal up/ pt it and as an added bonus you don't have to shovel snow.

The doctor who does fish ,told me to keep all my plans and then go under the knife in the late fall .

I am bringing the Penn80 and fighting belt, bring the wired shark hooks appropriate for a 1000+ lb shark! This year I am definitely in the fighting rotation!


Last yr 90min and 3 guys on a Penn50, the shark won handily!

You should invite some girls from the GAFF magazine to go with you on a photo shoot in the canyons...and make it a real party. This way when it not your turn on the rod, you can at least be watching a pole dancer with a cold one.
