Got the call from my buddy JD (Island Style on FS) and he said there was an open spot on the Boss Cat a 33te World Cat for a 120 buoy trip. So we figured out a time and everything and I met them yesterday morning at BluePoints.
As the cars pulled in and people rolled out I realized I had signed on for a trip that could very well end in and ... With el capitain we had 8 ppl.
Anyways, we cleared the port and got out about 35 miles when the winds started whipping and it looked pretty bleak for a crossing. Decided to stay on this side and tried to find some tiles early. Then moved inshore and caught some porgy's off the cones, then came in on 27 fathom and found a sea of red. We ended up catching 7 keeper snapper to 10#, and caught more shorts (19.75") than you could shake a stick at in about an hour and half. That was ONE spot.
Boat rides awesome, came in over the shoals at 30 and couldn't feel a thing. Weird ride compared to V-hull, alot faster than the Glacier I've been on.
Good call! JD got a cat now?
Emperor of TRADS!
That was one for the books! Thanks for being the designated driver. I spent half the day in tears after a doggie suppository was actually used for motion sickness, and FD had to tell the poor guy's wife all about it when we hit the docks..... Man, I'm sure FD has some really flattering pics of myself swimming around in my underwear in three - fives trying to unwrap the prop. Sometimes the fishing part is only 10% of the fun. Brad and I went and pulled the props the next day, sure enough there was a birdsnest under the portside props.
That suppository was funnier than hell... I can't believe he did that!
You seen the pics of Brad (FD) diving in the bahamas? BWHAHAHAHA!!!!
I've heard allot of great things about the Boss Cat and I purchased a trip on that boat at the last FSFA auction. I'm lookinf forward to getting out with him here in the next few months.
Thanks for the report.
