Picked up these fish from the San Louis Pass area in Galveston Bay.

We plan to go again tonight.

My little 14' fan boat project turned out to be a total desaster and has scince been dismantled and turned back into a little run-about to be sold.

I have put my deposit down on a new fan boat to be built by Kresta Marine in Edna Tx.

Heres a basic pic of what it should look like.

Here are a few requested pix of the "Angel of the Night"

When I get my new boat, I think I will name here "Blood Bath"

or "Pure Massacre".

Seans fan boat on the right.



Thought ya'll might get a kick out of this. My first dedicated gigging raft. It was surprisingly effective and took many fish
