Bumped into a buddy at the bar last night... it must be March because one of the first topics over good scotch & cold beer was splash dates.

Backbay water is holding pretty steady in the low 40's right now....

We figured weekend after next is lookin pretty good.

Got a date?

Been in all year. :D Haven't moved the boat since late December though. :mad: I've been tinkering on weekends all winter when time allows, going to be pulling, painting, changing zincs and cleaning/waxing in the next few weeks. :)

Heading down tomorrow to check on repairs and give the go ahead to splash her as soon as possible. Between the back bays starting to turn on and the wreck fishing still being so good it sounds like the perfect time!!!

By the way anybody have any idea when the mackerel should be swinging back through? Usually the first or second week of April if I'm not mistaken.

We should be in around tax day. The bottom is being soda blasted now then painted and we will be ready to go.

I don't even think about it until MAy. Sorry but my passion is offshore. Sharks really don't start in force around this way until May so thats the earliest the boat gets in.

To me i would rather fish June until Nov. rather then Mar. until Sept.

Usually come back thru...

Usually they'll swing back thru the mudhole area sometime in april. Maybe I'm just being hopeful but they were there for a while in January so who knows.

Big Jay...Mar thru Sept.....not this boat we fish March thru December!!
