Met up with my Dad, Uncle Roby, Dad's good friend Rodney, and Scoot at 1700 at Dad's house. To the ramp and underway by 1715; I got in the boat with Rodney and everyone else got in dads boat. We ran straight to Pickens Beach and split up.



Rodney and I found a nice stretch of beach without any competition and began the hunt! It was maybe 50 yards down that we found our first fish. We worked Pickens for the next 2 1/2 hours, producing fish every 15-20 min. Final tally was 16 between Rodney and I. We had 4 really nice fish, one of which, our biggest of the night, was around 6lbs.

Dad, Roby and Scoot also had success with a total of seven fish for their efforts. All in all a great night 23 fish between 5 fishermen, and home by 2100.

Thanks, we've been using essentially this same set up for the last 20 years. Very few new mods in all that time and it still works as good as ever.

We usually only fish with two guys. The outboard has an aluminium bar running across the front (about 3 1/2 feet wide). The rope runs from one side of the bar, up to a pulley on the bow and back to the other side. This way we can steer from the front so nobody has to get yelled at to "TURN AROUND, NO, NO ... LEFT, LEFT!!!" It's real simple and it's worked great the last 20+ years since my dad started taking me.

Thanks. Can you put it in neutral or shift gears from up there?
