    TFF is down, which it needs to be to get the server issue fixed....:mad:

    I have a question for the people going on the CInco Tuna trip... is anyone bringing a net for flying fish??? If NOT, should I get to work on building a couple(one for each side)???? No sweat here- can get the black net ends at Academy, and get some aluminum pool ploes to attach them to. Then I guess I would just give them away back at the dock. I am sure McGolfer and Snagged could use them WAY more than I.:cool:

    another question.. 18, 24. 0r 32 foot length???? what does it need to be??? (3 piece design that breaks it down to 8')

    24 would be about right. But a 32 that could be better as your talking a break down type, just be sure to have a lanyard loop on it.
    They use 14 foot gaffs on that boat.

    flying fish are for those who can't catch a tuna any other only problem with anything over 15ft is trying to control it on a rocking boat. with the ability to lengthen it or make it shorter that would be great....rick

    i am looking at the type that twist to adjust. i will see what the weight difference is in 24 vs. 32' lengths. :)

    You might as well spend some time designing the net. We want you to be very efficient at catching those winged fish. Save the extra large ones for me. And, don't touch mine with your greasy food preparation hands. I like my flyers to be touched only by nets. Bring some surgical gloves for when you place my flyers on my hook.

    I will tell you in advance that I prefer mine hooked through the bottom jaw up wards to wards the head but not more than one half inch from his eyes. A little skew to the left would be nice.

    Between cooking and catching us our bait, you won't have much time to fish. I'll bring a bullhorn to yell at you when I see a flyer floating in the lights near the boat. I don't want to loose my voice yelling for you. Besides, food doesn't taste as good when your tonsils are sore from barking out orders.

    Do you have a waiter uniform? My meals seem to taste better if the person waiting on me is dressed properly.

    Please change into a bait-boy uniform when scooping up my flyers. I don't like my waiter to smell like fish. It just ruins the meal.

    I want to thank you in advance for understanding the rules and being so polite. Oh, one more thing. When serving me, don't tell me your name. I hate it when the waiter introduces himself. I don't care what your name is, just serve me and be quiet. I tip very well.

    I dont know how large of a net you need circumference wise. But at leslies you could get I tihnk like a twist adjust 20' pole and add a pool leaf net on it.

    That way you would have control over it.

    An idea.

    correct Oso.. Home Depot carries the same poles only tons cheaper.... and the net has to have some depth to it so the flyer wont escape once it hits the net.. academy has the nice aluminum Black mesh nets( i will take off the stock pole and save it for something else?? )

    Instead of the bullhorn -don't want to cause any discomfort to your fellow fishers LOL- an electric training collar for dogs might get a quicker response! LMAO!

    I sure wish I was able to go on this trip. I would probably stay up top the whole time with a video cam and produce a priceless documentary on the total GOM extended range fishing trips! hehe (using Ronnie's words).

    I have one of those training collars here, I made a slight modifacation in that I installed a 30,000 volt capacitor as a shocker in it. Do you think GS will want to use it? :D

    I'll be taking one along, but I doubt it 's over 20 foot when fully extended. Won't hurt to have another one along.
