It has been a brutal early season with record cold and frozen waters. We are all trying to make the best of it and having some fun. We need a thaw or the season may be over before it began.
I hunted the north side and broke ice for two hours the day before to have a hunting site. I got there and there were a few birds flying. Got joined by some friends and we ganged up for a couple of hours and bagged some Hoodies and black duck.
On the weekend Chris Spies and Bill MacDougal, Anthony Babich, Jim Ellie And Rob, hope I got the names right, invited me to join them for a hunt around the inlet on a cold and blustery day. We had fun and the birds flew in late morning. Chris is a real gentleman and a truly rugged outdoor master under all conditions. Billy Mac is also a total die hard. Anthony B. shot some great video and we had a good time. Camaraderie is the name of the game especially when conditions are tough. Thank you guys and gals for a fun morning!
My 2015 motor is for sale. It has very low hours on it only 375 and is in tip top condition. It still has two years of Platinum warranty which is the best you can get. Everything is covered with Platinum even electrical. The warranty is over a $1000 option. This motor has been handled with the greatest care and has had all factory recommended upgrades. These Pro XS motors have awesome out of the hole power with carbon fiber reeds. This would be a great motor for a repower for boats from 20 to 25 feet. Asking price is $10,500. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. This is a great engine so don't miss out on it. A new motor retails at MSRP $17,500.
Tres Palms of Babylon Village held the last tournament of the year. With the abundance of striped bass around this years tournament more then doubled with participants. Every boat had fish, but the biggest fish and the winner was taken from the west tolling with a Mojo. The fish weighed in at 29.56. after the weigh in anglers enjoyed a buffet and raffles.
Today I fished with Jeff Sussman and his friend Bas Rutten. Bas was three time world champion heavyweight champion in the UFC and a great guy as is Jeff. We had fun with lots of short fish and a keeper for the pot.
It was an interesting day with fishing best early and then when the outgoing tide started and the fish were stacked up behind the West Bar.
Another great day on the water with a great crew.
