Aahhh, one of these in the Bahamas would be incredible.

Also nice JetService. I guess we need one for both fresh and salt water, eh?

I hate to say it but neither of those boats are very practical where I am at.

I would like to get a boat built on the frame of a 32 foot bowpicker. Steel or aluminum construction preferably.

With the cabin in the back you have a place to sleep on those hunting trips and the metal means you can mount a jib boom to raise crab and shrimp pots with.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

L-188,

I hear ya. I live in St. Louis, so the Rybovich wouldn't work well here.  Laugh out loud Now, if I lived in the Florida Keys, that would be a different matter.

Of course the Stratos isn't very practical in the ocean, but who cares about that? How many micropterus salmoides do you find there anyway???

I love to fish, I am either buying a used or new Fish Hawk 16ft with at least 50hpr engine next summer as long as I pay off my sled this year.

JetService,

True, not many Largemouth are in the ocean. But, I have to make a comparison. I had just as much fun fighting a 400 lb Blue Marlin as I did fighting a "plate" Bluegill on a flyrod.

However, there is absolutley no comparison to fighting a 10 lb Bass as to fighting a 50 lb Yellowfin Tuna. You hook 'em on the right gear and a Tuna will kick your ass my friend.  Laugh out loud And on another note, I have personally seen 10 lb tuna used for Blue Marlin bait!!!  Big thumbs up

Kindest fishing regards.

Boeing nut, pound for pound, smallmouth and even channel cats put up a bigger fight than largemouth. But my favorite part of the challenge is finding them and getting them to hit the lures. They are such damn smart critters when it comes to that stuff. They also seem to know what to do when hooked. I swear they go for the trolling motor blades everytime! LOL!! I should try ocean fishing, but I have to admit, if I'm ever in Florida or California, I'm heading for one of the inland lakes and hunting hawgs.

My neighbor's (broke his pole):


My son's:


Son got a bigger one the next week:


OK, so sometimes, I catch other things:

JetService,

Nice slide show!  Big thumbs up I totally agree with the remark about Smallmouths. Those things have serious attitudes! I have to say that top water is my favorite. Seeing a lure get smashed gives me an adrenaline shot every time.

It's the same with trolling in salt water. A lot of times, you can see it as it happens. You'll see the shadow lurking behind the bait, them BAM! The memory that sticks in my mnd the most was during a trip to the Bahamas. We were trolling the high speed plastic lures. I had my back turned at the moment. Then, a friend yelled out, "LEFT RIGGER!!". I turned and looked and I kid you not, it looked like a freakin' nuke sub was chasing us. You know how the water looks in front of a submarine on the surface? Just like that. The guide was a Bahamian native, about 40 years old and he said that it was the biggest fish he had ever seen in his life! It was a Blue Marlin the could have been over 1,200 lbs. We never hooked it, but man, what a sight!

Fish on!!

Boeing nut, that would be exciting as hell. I'm curious, would your rigs have been able to handle that fish? Sounds like a damn monster. I agree about the top-water stuff. I particularly like crawling plastics over duckweed and algae mats. Waiting for a big one to come shooting out of that stuff. Makes a hell of an explosion. If ever the opportunity permits itself, maybe we can hook up and fish. It may not seem like it, but you wouldn't have to twist my arm to try for the ocean stuff. LOL. But I would be about as green as you can get.

JetService,

The rig that this Marlin was after was the Penn International series 80 lb test. You know the big gold reels? It is possible that we could have fought this monster, but just for a while. I think she would have "explained" the situation to us very quickly.

As far as getting together to fish, who knows? I see we are relatively close enough. STL here. Talk to ya soon.
