Default Gom 02/17/19

I was bachelor'n it this weekend so I asked a buddy if him and his boys wanted to head out!!! They took me up on it and we headed out about 0530. A bit foggy and rough but temps were purty comfortable! We used cut bait/frozen cigs/squid. Dang ruby's were thick but not as thick as the triggers! Caught tons of em, sure glad they are more endangered then snaps!!! Caught a good bit of smaller snaps, and one reef donkey with a ruby red lip. Dang snaps all got ate by the plague of flipper!!! They followed the boat around but it was funny they wouldn't dare eat a trig!!! 1 tail smacked one to death but didn't eat it!!! It sucks not being able to bring anything home but awesome to get out on the water. Ride back in wasn't too bad and got back about 1530. Boat performed awesome...52 mph at 5100 rpm making a steady 2.2 GPM. That's with a full sled (4 adults/gear)

Just hard to make myself back off the throttle!!! I have been doing that in my truck and it's killing me but I went from 19 mpg to 22.8 ifin I keep it at 60 pushing a tad under 1500 rpm!!! I may just have to try to see...

Heck if I could squeeze 4 outta my sled, I could venture A LOT further out!!! Only have a 90 gal tank!
