Well we just got back from our 9days at the house in the crest. What a gorgeous week it was. Just got finished washing the boat down thoroughly, boy that slime grows fast.

Of the 4 days I actually got out to fish it was a a so-so experiance. total 18 fluke, 5 keepers. I fished mainly by the rt.147 bridge. Also like to say the guys a Dad's Place we're great, only disappointment was couldn't go near the marina anytime near low tide. so I was basically restricted to hightides coming in or going out. But the price was right.

I would like to make this point though, as a new boat owner and a reletivly small craft (18ft) I felt alittle naive when it came to coutesy from other boaters, especially those in the 30ft+ catagory. On more then a few occasions while drifting slowly, these morons came ripping through the fisherman, and I might add a bit too close to me a a few others, creating some hairy moments for my kids and misses. One idiot in a crownline came *** close as about 10feet from my boat and another nearly capsizing the poor guys in the 14ft Lund. I don't think I'll ever do this again, it doesn't seem very safe and with %#$holes like that ruin it for the rest.

Ok, done with my rant for now.

Thanx for the compliment on the signature Jack, I do graphics for a living hehehe. And I know the feeling about shawcrest, I got bounced about there as well, I stayed away from the canal though. The one bright spot though, I thought it was kewl that little island in the inlet near Moreys, Volleyball nets and BBQ.

Glad to hear you caught fish. As for the boat traffic???? It's a busy weekend with operators with chips on shoulders to very nice boaters. You did pick a bad weekend to judge most boaters? I hope?.

WMP- Yea I realize it wasn't the best weekend to judge boaters, but it is still upsetting that people act like that.

Jack-BikiniIsland would be an appropriate name for sure.
