The broad-chested guy sitting in the driver’s seat of the big Ford pick-up cleared his throat, as if preparing to speak. I glanced over at him. In the dark, the glow from the truck’s dash lights made his chiseled features appear even sharper.
“We sure picked a bad day,” he said quietly, as if preparing me for the worst. “The tide is really rough.
“We have only a .08 (foot) tide range — not a .8, but a .08. I don’t know if I’ve ever fished anything less than a .1 before.”
“But,” I thought to myself, “Brandon Carter can overcome that. He’s a famous speckled trout guide.”
