Finally, going fishing! Myself, Allen(cousin), Joel(bro-in-law) and Kyle(nephew) are on our way! Day started great, boat was loaded, and it wasn't as cold as it has been in the early am! Put in at texar about 6:30, as soon as we leave the dock, I start hooking up the 2nd battery that powers the electronics(it was just out getting charged), not a minute later, my cousin is shouting "Smoke, Smoke, Fire, Fire, Wo! Wo!" I look up and see smoke coming out the electronics box, think "OH SHIT" and immediately unhook the battery. (Electronics have worked fine on the 2 boat trips we've had it out riding around) The power for the vhf has melted! But we're just going to the 3 mile, no vhf, no gps, and no bottom machine...no biggie other than "wth caused that," and "we'll have to give that a look when we get home!" Bait was easy to come by just out from the ramp, open the baitwell and "What the crap!" The pvc riser drain I have for my new custom ;-) removable bait tank is not in it! So we had about 1/3 the water we should have... oh well...its about 10-12 gallons...fill it up! Damn, knew this was gonna happen on the first trip! Just waiting on what else would be wrong.. Get out, and its pretty bumpy! Got over on the west side of the bridge and it cut down the waves quite a bit, there were a group of boats so we're not the only ones out in this water. Start the rigging and "wheres the balloons?"...."I thought you were getting balloons!" So...zip lock bags it is!(Dont worry, NON of them got away or were left in the water!) About an hour later a school of spanish were skying about 50 yds behind our baits, hoping they would come closer, but they were headed out instead! No big deal, we're after the mack daddy king! Not 5 minutes later, my brother in law was reeling his bait in and its nailed about 30 feet behind the boat!! My 5 year old nephew gets a kick out of reeling in this "BIG Fish" ;-) Its a 3 lb loaner spanish....So we're not getting skunked atleast! About 10:30 we decided to troll right around the area since nothing else happened. Put in some divers he had that were equivalent to stretch 25s, Boat goes in gear...bait thrown(spinning combo) line set...45 seconds later drag goes off a bit, I'm thinking no way, must be hung on something, he sat there a second, nothing happened, line was slack as the boat got put in neutral, reeled in some, put a lil pressure on it, and drag goes a bit again, Fish On! I say "Looks like trolling it is!" Not much of a fighter, About a 4 or 5 lb bluefish. Trolled around about another 45 min, and had to head in about 11 30. (Didnt know that til we got out there!:banghead)



Wanted to make a cruise over toward the pass/ pickens, but really didnt have time.



Once home, we looked over all the electrical. I think the vhf shorted itself out, the power connector for the gps started making some smoke(possibly coorosion?) Its out of the boat, with the power cord and is going to get checked out with the vhf. The rest of the electrical system, seems fine...atleast the bottom machine doesnt have any problems!:toast I will also be installing fuses for everything as there is non!:banghead



Even with the negatives, I was just happy to get out with some lines in the water!

N-Trouble nice report. I have had many days that didn't go right, and I know how it feels first hand. As the old saying "It still is better than a day at work". Your report should serve as a great reminder to us all, and keep that young one in the boat, the trip more than likely made his day.

Death From Above, I don't understand. I realize that you have these "Action Packed" Flounder gigging trips, that I findfacinatingit keeps your attention as often as you do it. I would love to learn howto do what you do in a flounder boat as you are obviously very skilled, but it would bore me to do it as often as you do, and I have otherthings thatI would rather be doing at 2:00am. You should try it I have been at it for almost 20 years and it sure beats fishing after midinight, and you probably wouldn't have fell asleep during N-Troubles report either.

Good report man. It could have been worse trouble like when some idiot pinches one of his coil wires with the cowling :banghead:banghead and your top speed is 12 mph and you realize how much extra fuel you burned 2000 yards from the launch :doh:doh

Nice of you to share bad or good news....Not everyone can have a great day. Then again, it's always a great day when you can get out and fish. Next time you catch fish, take pictures and rearrange the fish and take some more....It will look like you are the great Fisherman like some others who think they are.....

Hope you get the electronics fixed.....

if yall havent noticed yet, thats all DFA is good for.. he never really seems to have a report of his own, except for somegay flounder gigging every now and again. but you can always depend on him to be there with some negative remarks if you post a actual FISHING report. i think DFA is probably a closet homosexual who does alot of cocaine, thats why hes so upset and highstrung all the time!! DFA do us all a favor, put on a blindfold and go play in traffic..:blownaway

I don't get upset. It''s amazing though how a single emoticon can send some folks on this forum off the deep end.:)

no youre just a prick that cant keep your rude comments to yourself. youve done it to me a couple times and from the looks of your most recent posts, thats all you do!! find something better to do with your time, like learn how to fish.. i know youre very good at sneaking up on them at night like a ninja, blinding them with a spotlight, and jabbing them into the sand with a gig but are you actually smart enough to catch a fish. i think ive said this before but maybe you should delete your handle and try a fresh start with a new one!! and this time, tryto not besuch a fuck face and maybe people on here will actually want to converse with you about "fishing"... cause as of now, i think youve pissed off almost everyone on here at least once and no one wants to hear anything you have to say!!

ScullsMcNasty--- stop jumping all over DFA, i garuntee he's caught more than his fair share on rod&reel.

if you don't remember, evryone flipped a shit about his first post, calling him a poacher and what-nt, when in fact, he wasn't even breaking the law.... but all these self-appointed rent-a-fwc's on here freak out without knowing the laws or the situation.... so chill out man.-- i think bluefish are :sleeping as hell too, you gonna jump all over me???

and no offense to the OP, not trying to derail... sorry
