John-

nice to meet you! You looked really good in that brand new luxary model pumpkin fishing platform!! Hope you enjoyed yourself.... that was actually a relatively slow day for us, but at least we did pick up some fish. If you can, please let us know the details on the fish finder- I believe that will be my next addition to the fishing arsenal.

If you need any more tube rigs, let me know. I hate to say it, but since Joe got us going, it is now my first choice lure and as you have seen the most successful- even the eels didn't do much!! other than attract the darn blues...

Happy yakking!!

Hey JohnM, what...were they outta all the good colors? tongue.gifwink.gifHappyWave.gif

 

Be careful, as the water cools, the stripers love that color orange belly on plugs...if you feel thumping on the bottom of the yak in the dark, slow troll a black/gold/orange bomer - you'll mop up wink.gif

Joe thanks was a great time. We screwed up of course but it was still fun. Looking forward to doing it again.

Dougie was good to meet you too. We didnt mohawk em but at least we got em smile.gif The FF is the vexilar. I was pleased with it, when oyu got that 39 incher, I marked them as wetn over em then both you and joe hooked up.......I did a first class mount job, some vasilne on the hull, I put the transducer in the vaseiline then taped it all in place. I will do a more permanant set up. It took me abotu 20 minutes to set it all up in Joe's driveway.
