Well all I can say is we had one of "those" days! A fun as heck one! We started out getting stuck as did about half the field due to the extreme low tide so I got out a pushed a bit. While pushing we came along a pothole in which Scott casted in and pulled out a nice 5lber! We were on the board! From there we just pushed and poled whatever was possible for about 3/4 of a mile till we could get on a plane and we fished every pothole on the way. Still the whole time we were having fun, just joking and fishing cause we knew if we had water problems in the gheenoe so did everyone else. We finally got on are way to our intended fishing area about an hour and a half later. We saw many nice reds but couldnt get them to eat. I poled the boat for about an hour and Scott (my partner) hooked up, it was about a 3lbs safety fish but atleast we were had a full card now. We were at a mangrove bay opening and knew the fish would want to try to work their way in as the tide came up so we just staked out and started fan casting. I FINALLY GOT TO FISH!! Scott asked me to try his secret color and I was like "you gotta be kidding!!". On the 2nd cast I get an hit from a decent fish and it turns out to be a 5.5 lbers! Its about 10:30 and we know we have 2 respectable fish so now we are really happy! The rest of the day was more of the same we caught about 10-12 fish all together most in the 5 lbs range. We even got Scotts level out to weigh 2 of them and the level was damn even! In the last hour we decided to move and it really paid off! We find a nice wad of hungry reds, problem is we spooked them!! Patience paid though and Scott got a 6lber with about 15 minutes left to fish. We tried to fish some more but the fish were too skiddish. I did get a nice 23' trout though! We headed in, hit a roof that was in the water from the hurricane, weighed in, got 4th. It was a complete blast! Oh yeah, We fished this tournament outta my lil gheenoe. Man, you should of seen the looks on their faces when we were in that little bitty boat with a 25 hp on it and they all had 40+ thousand dollar rigs with 200 - 250 hps on them.:)

man. someday I'm gonna book a trip to florida just to fish with you. I've really only fished recreationally up here in lakes and some salt water. probably 5 or 6 pounds bass is the biggest I've brought in. But I'd love you to take me out and teach me some real fishing.

Thanks, ya'll! We are having a boy this go round, we already have one of each. Crazyhook, We are talking with the gheenoe people everyday. The goal for the next one is to draft 4 inches and be able to run 40 mph.:) That will be one fun little boat! My action craft goes 70 mph but to get 40 mph outta one of these little gheenoes would be fun as heck! Boy, we would really hurt a lot of feelings in tournaments when there is a low tide most of the day.:)
