    With all the fishing reports we're getting anxious.

    Any of you that are booked on this trip going down the day before?I'm pretty sure we are going to be staying at the shark reef motel. I think that is what it is called, anyway it is supposed to be pretty close to the dock.

    Just thought if anyone was going down early we could meet up, Maybe go over what type of lures,jigs,rigging that seems to be productive.

    I'm still trying to get some loose ends taken care of,48 quart icechest,milk crate, food.

    Hey Rick, dont forget the patches.

    The shark reef is where I stayed. Cheap and gets the job done. It's right down the street from the dock.

    there is HEB and Walmart nearby but they are 15 miles or so away I recall.

    It was a little too windy for us to do anything the days before the trip so we went to a bar in Corpus.

    Fred (Gimmedeal) and I plan to be in PA Monday around 6pm and would welcome an opportunity to meet everyone Monday evening. Maybe dinner and drinks? What motel do folks plan to use?

    As long as it is not over 2 feet high then you should be good. It's not strict really just don't bring some huge cooler.

    14" deep x 15" height x 24" length = 48-52Qt chest.

    Normal seating height is 18". Under most seats is 16". Keep height under 16" for a good fit.

    What boat are you going out on?

    On the Pelican, I measured the distance from the bottom of the seat to the deck at 18.5 inches. A 60 quart Igloo will fit under it nicely.

    Yes, it looks like a front wil push into the coast on Wednesday. Winds are looking stiff the day before (Tuesday). Maybe it will linger a bit before hitting the coast. Good luck.

    With 6-8's Monday it looks dicey but shows 4-6's for Tuesday. I'd say it's a go. DSH rarely cancels for 4'-6' seas.

    Fred .... if you're over that way Monday evening I may run over and call you on your cell phone. But don't count on that for sure ...;)

    Lots of history behind that avatar Tom. I've been using it on another board for about 4 or 5 years now. And even though it's a G-rated mixed board they have fun with it. They have nicknamed he "Lucy" for some reason and the guys make up stories about trips they've taken with her. I won't go there but Lucy has been a naughty girl a few times. One guy tells me she has nice "pixels". I used to have her in a link where she moved about 2 or 3 time s faster but after a computer crash I was only able to find her in the slow moving one you see here. I used to could post a spirited song and she'd meet the rhythm perfectly.
