  1. No pictures, but we ended up with 15 trout up to 19," 5 reds, 3 nice sheepshead (where did they come from?), 3 drum, and a nice 20" flounder. Just to round out the smorgasboard, had to dehook a stingray without getting popped!
  2. South Georgia Redfish

    I took two guys. It was slower than Thursday. We scrapped and moved around a lot to keep 15 trout to 19", 5 reds, 3 nice sheeps, 3 drum, and a nice 20" flounder. The Ulterra really got a workout .......deploy and stow, rinse and repeat!
  3. South Georgia Redfish

    Nice morning of catching!!
  4. What did you do to your boat today?

    Looks like a monster trout! How big?
  5. Prop and rpm

    I have a 2007 2200 V with a 225 SHO. I am running a Powertech OFX3 x 19 pitch. Fishing with 3 old, fat guys and everybody's tackle yesterday, I could still hit 5700 rpm's and 53 mph trimmed out. With just me, 5900 rpm's and 57 mph is no problem.
  6. 2016 Pathfinder 2200 TRS

    Looks showroom new to me. Somebody will get a cream puff at a good price. GLWS.
  7. Started out with some slow fishing, but I knew eventually the fish would wake up. Water temps early were 58-59degrees. We ended up with a limit of trout and reds, and left them biting by 11am. The two largest trout were 20 and 20 1/2".
  8. 2017 Pathfinder 2300HPS

    385 hours on. 2017!!!! WOW!!!! I'm jealous!! Nice boat. GLWS.
  9. 1978 18' Maverick / berg

    Too nice to mess up by getting fish slime on!!!!! Now you need to find a tired old skiff to fish out of, and save this one for the sandbar and restaurant scene! Congrats!!!
  10. Upgrading Trolling motor

    Prior to my Ulterra's, I had an I Pilot. Just like my buddy's I Pilot last weekend, all the MK motors prior to my Bluetooth Ulterra wandered over a half acre when you used Spot Lock. That aggravated me to no end. It especially wasn't fun when trying to anchor down near a dock! More than once, it bounced me against a dock.
  11. Ignition Switch Replacement

    At a Yamaha dealer. Just bought a replacement for mine for $4.25.
  12. Upgrading Trolling motor

    I had a first gen 24 volt Ulterra for a year, and now, the Bluetooth Ulterra for 10 months. The Bluetooth Ulterra functions are night and day superior to the old Ulterra. Both Ulterras have given zero problems. I went fishing on my buddy's 2400 Pathfinder with a 36 volt I Pilot last weekend. It just made me appreciate my Ulterra that much more! He is saving up for an Ulterra. Personally, I would never own a bay boat again without an Ulterra!
  13. 1992 Hewes Bonefisher 16 Rehabilitation

    Absolutely beautiful work! I imagine the registration numbers deserve to be in gold leaf!
  14. I went with a buddy after church for a couple of hours on his fancy 2016 24 Pathfinder. The wind was only honking about 20 mph out of the N/E. We managed to keep 10 trout, with the largest at 20".
  15. In spite of my best judgment!

    Hope not summer yet. The next couple of months are what I keep the boat gassed up for!!!!! Got to cook up some those wily spotted seatrout and corn dodgers tonight! Mmmmnnnn good!
  16. In spite of my best judgment!

    But you aren't nearly as old, er.........I mean experienced, as me.
  17. 2015 2400 4 Blade?

    Has anybody found a prop that they are happy with????? My buddy has a 2016 2400 TRS with hard top, 36V I pilot, leaning post tackle cabinet, and the F300. Looking for something that will get the rpm's up to at least the 5700 - 5800 range.
  18. 2400 TRS F300 Prop

    I have a buddy with a 2016 2400 TRS, T-top hardtop, 36V I pilot, 4 batteries, the premium leaning post with tackle cabinet, and the F300 Yamaha. He has less than 50 hours on the rig and had never opened it up to WOT. This past weekend, I got him to open it up and he only hit 5300 rpm's by trimming out and raising the jack plate. He is going to pull the boat today and see which prop he has. I am pretty sure it is a Yamaha 4 blade, but not sure the model or the pitch. Any further suggestions for him on which prop to look at. I told him he needs to get his rpm's up to the 5700 - 5800 range at least. Sounds like he needs at least 2 inches less pitch to me.
  19. Brutal start, but it came together nicely

    Really nice fish.
  20. My 2500 Build

    I guess you are having trouble sleeping at night, like a kid at Christmas! Nice!
  21. Whale of a Pig of a gator

    Wow!!!!! That would have been scary just to hear the strike!0
  22. Whale of a Pig of a gator

    Do you know if caught on artificial or bait?
  23. Whale of a Pig of a gator

    WOW. Drool....... I think that is actually a king mackerel!!!!!
  24. HAPPINESS IS. . . .

    Somebody had a nice early Christmas. Nice Fenwicks! Are those Shimano Stradics?
  25. Savannah Area

    Whew!!!! That is a tall order, and too bad about the weather forecast. Anywhere you can get out of the wind before and after each tide change will be a moral victory........trout might just be a bonus. You will have to stay in the rivers or get behind an island or land mass. Even large, exposed rivers like the South Channel will be tough to fish on a 20 knot noreaster! You might need to look around behind Skidaway Island and find some clear water. That said, there will still be trout biting.......somewhere. This is turning into a banner year on the trout. I have been on the water every weekend for about 4 or 5 straight weekends, and got limits every trip. If I go, I will be looking to get behind an island somewhere!!! Maybe Mr. NOAA Forecaster will lower the forecast a little before this weekend. At least that is what I am hoping for. Good luck!
