Since this forum is dead lets get some talk going about this upcoming year. Wats on your todo list.nmine consists of: adding wings to my enclosure, adding2nd battery, adding sonic hub with a nmea2k hookup for my etec, and maybe adding an hds7 gen1 :eek:.

With that being said, if I get that all done I hope to be making my first trip the second Sunday of march. What about you guys, I know three will be someone out there hunting the rare bay cod, trying to one up flash:fighting:.

Also where is everyone docking at ? I'd like to meet and fish with some more of the Maurice river guys. I'm back at haases

New, lower pitch prop to get out of the hole quicker and for those rough days on the water, finish sanding, buffing and polishing the last 12' of the port side, paint the bilge, move one of the bilge pumps, clean up some ugly wiring in said bilge, install and wire an anchor winch, add a third battery, and recommission the potable water system. Days like today make it hard not to break out the tools.

Well it's closer to where I fish opens some ares I fished when I was at Port Norris. I think it kinda gives me a lot more choices to reach with out spending a lot of money on gas. Can't say enough good things about guys out of Joe's.

Should have it all done by that time. Got the call they have a spot for me. I'll give it try. Besides I think work ids going to suck again starting around Mid to late April. Maybe get some fishing before that.

Are you slipping by the ramp or up by office?

Figure out and fix some electrical problems - especially the bildge pump.

Stock up on gulp before they sell out for flounder fishing.

Reorg the striper fishing gear. Look at the charts for spots to try.

Didn't like that last year we couldn't get into mid April and was told for a while we had to out by early November. I can only get down to fish on weekends so that cut striper fishing down a lot. Driving thru water at high tide and had to get bait at other places. Now the good things great boaters and fisherman nothing but the best I can say about you guys. The big reason and the only one that made up my mind was location. I can get to a lot more spots with less travel time.

Best of luck to you next season.:thumbsup: Not sure how they tie up where you are looking. Check that out when you are down there. I'm sure we'll still be in contact.:wave:

Damn. I lost a neighbor.:( I didn't think my boat smelled that bad?:D Good luck to you, Rick. You will be closer to your spots and easier on you in your mako. There's a nice looking 21 hydrasports CC in the Barn Sale.;)

We stayed till December 4th. Bruce was fidgety, but the weather was great and he understood.

Hoping to put a radar on the boat. We'll see how that turns out in the next couple of weeks. Anyone have an HDS 7 and a 3G for sale? The only other things are to make sure she's dependable. Not too worried about looks.

Gonna miss you buddy!
Be real careful at the fort I was there for 3 years. Biggest issue I has was fuel. Not sure what your capacity is but in my 20 I had a 20 gal tank. I would fill up before every trip. The last year there the fuel dock opened late 7 out of 12 weekend days. Late being 9 AM :mad:
The people who worked at the fuel dock back then were volunteers from what they said. Not sure if that issue was fixed but you know how much it would suck to sit and wait for fuel. On several occasions I took the ride to baypoint.
Kinda killed that early out plan :D
I used to bring my fuel jugs and go to Higbees. That got old and was the reason I moved to Joe's.
