I'd like to make a note...So far we have 3 people over there myself included. While its not as "nice looking" as I would have liked or as neat as others it serves the purpose for now...I have bigger plans for it...but for now this will have to do.
Thanks,
Chris

Not bad Chris. Very good Idea, and well executed. I'll have to start spending some more time over there. I don't horde kits, so I only have a couple around here, and I've started most of them, so there's not really much I could do as far as trading goes, but you never know. Keep up the good work. With all that, how do you find time to fish?

THERES ALWAYS TIME TO FISH!!! Seriously, being in the fishing industry and as much as I love fishing sometimes it gets old...I fished for about a week solid in late september. Sometimes I'll take customers out if they want to go. Mainly this year I have concentrated my efforts on fishing in the tourneys(Saltwater of course). I fish some freshwater but not much as unfortunately we have some serious problems in the various rivers in our area. The few lakes are small and not big enough to use a bass boat. Ive got a tourney coming up that runs from Dec 1-January31st....I took 2nd place overall last year in it. With 1st place for redfish. So I teamed up with the guy who beat me last year and were fishing off my boat this year, were splitting entry fees and prizes. Im around fishing and fishing stuff every day when Im not on vacation(and even this week Ive had to make some calls.) so modeling and this forum is a great release/change of pace. If all goes well...next spring I will start doing my own guiding and charters(right now I just broker them) off of my boat...so I'll be fishing almost everyday. I'll leave the mailorder/store in my brother in laws hands while Im doing that. I have the licenses to do it now...but will be waiting until next season.

If you have a choice between freshwater and saltwater fishing, well, that's not a choice at all. I used to live close to Galveston, and we had a bayhouse on a little island out there. We'd go and stay there all weekend. God I love saltwater fishing, here in Oklahoma, all we have is fresh. The best bass in the world doesn't compare to an average redfish. That's not even counting the occasional shark or amberjack or wahoo or tarpon, egads. I need to go visit my dad so I can get some salt on my line.

The charter thing sounds pretty cool, just be sure not to burn yourself out on it, or get too burned. I know a guy who was a crane operater, he got melanoma and had to have his nose removed! Be careful out there. What kinda rods and reels and such do you deal with?

It's a little hard to get an idea of the scale of it, too bad you're not holding him up. Judging by the net, he does look like a serious bull. The biggest red I've caught was a 32 inch, and it took me a good while to bring him in. The hardest fight I ever had was a big stingray, I thought for sure it was a monster, like a great big shark or tarpon or something. I was afraid he'd break my line. I'm currently planning to go to Pensacola next November for the forum thing, if it gets up and running, maybe we could do some fishing then. Do you still have a boat like that? I'm impressed, we never had anything like that, just a shallow draw, bay boat. I love salt water fishing.

Yeah I wish I could have been holding him to but I was alone and wanted to shoot a quick pic before getting him back in the water. Sold the boat in the Pic the day after the pic was taken...But I do have a new bigger better toy. An 03 Donzi 38ZF I've taken it out a few times(still trying to learn all the electronics functions, I switched from Furuno to Ray Marine)...It's got good range but filling the tank is a(insert expletive here)...Has 3 250/Mercury Optimax's. The cabins a lot bigger though! And now for the worst part I'll be making payments on it for the next 10,000 yrs!!!! I have some pics of it that will be on the second page....along with some nice Marlin Pics from our vacation in Costa Rica.
I'm sure I'll be able to find some time to get us out on the water in NovemberBig Smile [:D]Big Smile [:D]

Cool man! That sounds like a serious boat for sure. My boss is into boats, so I know a very little about the big ones, but I don't know that I've heard of that model. He just bought a 30 someodd foot carver. Pretty neat, but it's not really for fishing I don't think. I don't much see getting a boat for any reason other than fishing really. We just used a little tri-hull for getting around in the bay and the Intercoastal and rivers and such, it suited our needs pretty well. You're much more of a pro than I ever was :)

Do you guys have hardhead in Pensacola too? I hate those bastages

I've always wanted to go marlin fishing, never had the chance. I did catch 14 speckled trout in about an hour once but it's not quite the same.
