Well I don't see a hole in the fish so that is good news.
OK-35--So now yagot us really interested ! Last yr we were using 2/0 gam. red hooks w/ about 1/2 oz fo splitshot.. Still the same ????
Nice fish, thanks for the report.
We, b8boy and self, Richard Pelletier, made it out there around 9:30 with 3 other boats there, sure to be the last time for that. First drop BAMB, fish on, limit by 11:30. B8boy finally got his FIRST citation ever, 22" release. My man Martin. Bumpy ride back but ok.
On the grill tomorrow!
Nice day fishin for sure. Thought that was you RACN35 tied off to the opposite side of the tower. Tried to yell on the radio to ya but go no response. We saw the bat too. Richard started off slow but we both started catchin as the morning progressed. What was wrong with your boat yesterday RACN35? While Richard and I were running in today I dropped a lower unit on my port outboard. Drained the case and had no water but lots of metal shavings and a few small chunks. Not sure why it went but we were runnin 30 knots and then she tached up hard, the motor still ran but no prop turning. We didnt hit anything and no fishing line in the seals(water), not sure what happened. I have a spare lower unit but it is for a regular engine not a counter rotating one. If anyone knows of a counter rotating lower unit for a 92 merc 200hp let me know. I have Terron from B&T Marine searchin for one also. After all these years of fishin I finaly poped the cherry and got my first citation!!! That made up for the lower unit problem. Such is life got to take the good with the bad. Thanks for a fun day Richard. Martin
Did the bat survive his ride in? or wherever he went?
