The outing is slated for the 20th of October.  So Mikey will get to fish the AP twp weeks in a row if you participate.  I don't know why the info page has not been filled out.  The outing chair for this outing is Chris Summers.  If you have any questions please PM or contact Chris.  Heck he hasn't even signed up as of yet??? He explained at the last meeting that some of the folks will be staying at the drifters resort and our awards program and dinner will be held there too.  I will need to share a boat with someone...hint hint to George S. (get out of the curry and close that deal brother). Ill be interested in only fishing down there on Saturday and then returning to POC that nite after the dinner. I'll fish Sunday from my boat (he said with fingers crossed) and then return to Houston.  If that fit anybody itinerary let me know.

Dude this is going to be so good.  I have read several post else where stating the fishing down the PINS is so awesome right now...Also could the weather be any better.  Some of you long timers on the PINS trip have earned good weather so enjoy.  Do take some good photos maybe we can talk Puck into doing a show and tell. I think the statement of strapping Matt to the truck is what he did last year...i think he has earned a seat this time. As long as he has at least a cooler full of larger and peppered beef jerky!

Wish I could make this one but I just got back from NASCARolina seeing my brother and family.  Need to get to work on moving one daughter out and then moving the other one in!!!! Won't be able to fish until sometime in October.  Hopefully I will get to attend the Redfish Rodeo.  Anybody need a roof!

Great time Mike...sorry I had to launch out so quickly.  I had a call from daughter who needed some help with a chore. What a beautiful fall morning. It seemed like the fish were jumping out of the water higher today than usual.  I was good for about 20 +.  As soon as it warmed up the dragonfly bite was on!

So I get this call from this TFF bud of mine (..er our's) last week Saturday and he says he's a go'n to Austin to this unknown location to check out a boat. What do you think?  It didn't take him much to get me to say, "I wanna GO!".  So go I did ...we are on the road by 10:00am and ride'n in this bright red luxury SOB ..er I mean SUV that no respect'n Texas State Trooper is going to let pass without given 'er the "ole evil eye".  Anyways bout half-way there I ask, so where's this secret place.  He says it is some lake whatchamacallit and we're meeting the Owner and going for  test ride.  OK I get That! Where is this lake...being slightly more knowledgeable than any old SEC lov'n yeahoo... I said whatchamacallit huh where's that!  He says over off 290 somewhere.  Well now there you go.  Even I can find that!  I talk Rand McNalley into turning into the next gas station to get the local explanation on the lake whatchamacallit's wherabouts.  First place we go was an Hispanic biker Stop and metal head 'n Go where he didn't even know what a lake was!  Next place was a Quik Powerball and Beer to Go joint where one of the patrons said old whatchamacallit is really named "this" but some people call it "that" cause of what happened there years ago.  DON'T GO THERE MIKE, DON'T.  So now we have directions and that's a real good thing cause the old boy's Willis offspring had a malfunction at the GPS junction and for all we knew nowhere was everywhere!  But we arrived and there she was in all of her azure beauty Lake Whachamacallit and she was dead calm and OURS!  "But no boats are waiting to be abused...er I mean tested,"  I say to my buddy.  He'll be here. (Insert Jeopardy song here)  But alast he shows and behind his grocery-getter's sportsstation wagon was this white beauty sitt'n on the purrdy'ests aluminum trailer you ever did see. Grey motor and all she was a boat alright (breakoutanotherthousand) and looked quite capable of handling anything he could dish-out to her.  Small talk begins and my phone goes off...big client having a flood under my brand new installed roof curbs! 

Well I guess he tested the boat out as he came back to shore where I was still reeling from so much bad phone information..." Boat's nice but she's a miss'n.  Missing what I say..."no I mean miss'n like running bad!  Currrrrumba I say.  He says, "Maybe ethanol"...(oh if he knew who he was talking to about ethanol)...or might be filters ...anyways I'll get it fixed".   So negotiations ensued and I feel all went very well for "Bama boy.  So it would seem that we just might...or just maybe...if all the if's fall into the right space...we might have us a new craft in the salt fleet.

Did Whatchamacallit look nice or what!

The boat showed up and got looks from the onlookers!

Front End

Back End

Console

The thing floats!


The present Owner is a well seasoned flyfisher and has fished and caught his first tarpon with my brother.  The boat seemed to have been taken well cared for and was full of 5, 6, and 8 weights and a very nice spinning rod too all of which I tried to get thrown into the deal.  As far as the roof leaks way over re-action to what amounted to be less than a 1/4 of an ounce in four buckets.  General contractor ppunched holes thru roof without notifying us to seal!  Go figure.

Hopefully we will have a deal done soon...the new owner says he'll be the first to sign up for my skiff operators course! Huh! You guys who don't know how to pole a skiff need to get trained so when guys like this want to go fish they'll know you're a trained flat skiff poler! Think of the unabated fishing hours you get to enjoy on a craft like this!

Now who is this interested buyer????
