  1. Nice Rig. How was the haul home? I'm getting ready to head to Florida in a couple weeks to bring mine home. I'm a bit nervous about that but I want to get my eyes on it even after I have had a surveyor look at it.

  2. I rather go fishing 4-5 times more per season than pay $200 to fish a tournament. To me that's a no-brainer. I can't catch 12 fish anyways so not that it really matters to me. The local tournament does have a one day $100 shoot out. That I might join once I learn how to catch 12 fish. Now, if the 333 had an amature division where you didn't have to join the host tournament that was CHEAP. I'd definitely do that when the tournament was in town. I can catch 3 fish over 2 days(maybe!). But go up against those pro's in the 333... No thanks.


    I also do not have the ability at this point in my fishing "career" to catch 12 fish, am I working on it, yes. I don't know what your home port is but that's all that my team and I do is 333 with the occasional big fish fee. That is the level set it puts you even up with pros. It is an incredible feeling to see your name above boats/teams you have considered to be top notch. And you only pay usually $150 and get the whole tourney atmosphere. Someday when I get the nerve I will enter an AM because for some reasons those tourneys even if 333 only are like a drug I cant get enough of.

  3. I know it doesn't seem like Spring is coming but it is. I am selling my 1982 Penn Yan FB Sport Fisherman. Rebuilt 350 Mercruiser (260) put in in 2011 appx 100 hours since.

  4. Set lines by 0500 in 115 FOw strait out. Took the first fish at 715 a nice 21# King on chute rigger 75 down flasher fly. Took a 4# coho on blue dolphin 55 down over 90 ft and then another 21# King on 300' copper falsher fly. no luck with the meat today but there are alot of alewives still floating around out there. ended up 3/5 had another nice rip on 300 copper but lost it trying to remove the board. Quite a few boats out in the am and I believe things are looking up.

  5. So the surface water temps took a major jump today looking at coast watch. does this mean any thing or is it just the very surface due to all this sunshine? I can see how it would effect shoreline fishing but does this have any immidiate effect on the rest of the water column?

  6. Just try and keep it clean of wash as much as possible but really they incredibly picky I would try to separate it from other transducers but not life or death or and I know this probably goes without saying but somewhat close to the rigger u plan on using.

  7. We ran 2 300' 45lbs rods last year with decent results so this year I picked up some more blood run 45lbs to make up 150,200, and 250 rods Im just trying to figure out which of my reels to put the smaller sections of copper on.

  8. Had a fish take a TX-44 board straight down last year with a RV Flounder Pounder attached to 300' copper. After alot of screaming line and sticking the rod as far down in the water as I could the board came shooting up about 4' out of the water I reeled it in only to find the snap had straightened out. Point of this story is they do attract big fish! Green Flounder Pounder and Mongolian Beef probably our favorites.
