Default Sarday nite - Sundy morning PSJB

They were hard to see after the scallop hogs rooted up the bay floor, with grass floating everywhere. We managed to get 2-24" 1-20" 2-14"

A 24"er is a doormat. That's some fine eating.

Thanks guys. That's my floundering partner. I haven't been in 2 years. I changed boats spring of last year. My 22' Lowe Roughneck got to be more boat than my old but could handle, loading and unloading. I found a Carolina Skiff V-Series 198 hull and rigged it out. This was the maiden flounder trip. It sits about a foot or more off the water. That messes with your aim we missed the first 3.

I rebuilt the "crab grabber" and used too light SS Cable. We saw 2 crab the first hour the cable broke on the second one. Then they were 20 - 30 circling the boat once the "crab grabber" broke.

It's always an adventure when you are using new equipment for the first time. I tore up one of my new lights before we left the dock. Easy repair at my shop, but not on the water at night.
