Default Sat night in Ms.

I believe this is the first report I have ever put in this section. But anyhoo, I just finished builded a little skiff and rigged it up for floundering. Nothing like some of you guys have built but it works. Went out Sat night for her "gigging" maiden voyage. I picked the right night and it was slick calm and the water clarity was good. Launched out of Bayou Heron over in Ms. Had a good night and didnt have a problem stickin a limit.

Great night. You don't need a fancy boat. I get reminded of that every time I pull out at the ramp and look in the other coolers..

Overkill He's out lookin for few more fish tonight. I don't remember what he used Lexan,Plexy or Starboard. Anything thin and strong, just cut a groove in it and glue to the ledge in your cooler and your done.

Start early so the glue has time to dry before the weather gets good again.

Well my aim SUCKS. Went out last night for a quick trip. Motor was running like sheet so I didnt go far. Gigged 1 before it got dark and thought it may be a sign of things to come. Ended up picking up 4 total but should have had 8, as I said my aim sucks. Wind was out of the south and the water looked like yoohoo everywhere but really close to the bank. Was at home in bed by 10pm so still not bad I guess.


As for the ice chest its just a peice of starboard slotted glued and screwed to the ice chest. I got the idea from a guy I met at the launch last week. Works great!!
