    So I get up early this morning to join a couple of buddies out on the water to do a little Dolphin fishing. Take all my fishing stuff and of course the blackberry ( You can see where this is going)anyway we get out about 13-15 miles offshore find a nice piece of debris that is holding a ton of dolphin and we are having a blast. Soon we are surrounded by other boats trying to get in on the action and of course a large sportfishing boat is a bit overzealous and is throwing a huge wave which dislodges my trusty BB and over the side it goes. After watching it sink out of sight I go back to fishing. We get back to the ramp and I get in touch with ATT to initiate a claim and the guy tells me that we need to turn off the phone and set me up with a new number ( I told him I lost the phone) so that there is no chance that someone can find the phone and use it. I tried to explain to him that the phone will never be found so there is nothing to worry about and that I really need the same number because I use the phone for business.He informs me that it would be best to change everything just to be safe. Finally I get it through his head that 15 miles EAST of Miami Beach is 1300 feet of water and that this particular phone will never ever see the light of day again and even if it does it aint gonna work. Thats my story and I thought I would share it just because I found it to be very funny.

    By debris, do you mean a good fishing spot? That's what I didn't get...lol I thought it might be a bunch of dolphin caught in nets and wood or something. Good story by the way. Gotta be nice to head out in the ocean and fish. I'm stuck with lakes

    Since we are close to the Gulf Stream here you get everything from driftwood to pallets and everything in between and baitfish just kind of follow it wherever it goes so the Dolphin tend to gather around it for a free meal.Unless I find it and then its more of a last meal.

    Here in Hawaii, we call them Mahimahi... so imagine my surprise when I was in Miami and saw dolphin on the menu at a restaurant.
