    Here are some pics for those that didn't get to log on at the time.
    Sounds like one boat did great and the other boat did not do as well.
    I was told that they made it to the Boudreaux rig but the rig asked them to leave. They stayed just a while and then headed up to Hoover Diana.
    Can't wait to hear the reports!

    Are those pictures from one boat or a combination of both boats? Which boat made the trip to Boudreaux and had to leave?

    I saw Snagged standing there wearing his famous yellow shirt. I think he needs to mount that shirt in a frame and hang it on a wall. That is if he ever decides to retire it.:)

    I believe these pics were from the Gulf Eagle. I'm still waiting to see if they hang fish from the Pelican. I think that both boats were asked to leave Boudreaux....someone may be pulling my leg....we'll hear the stories later.

    I saw some fish that could have been triple digit fish. I noticed they never hung the Pelican's fish .... what's up with that? :confused:

    The other guy is SkeeterRonnie I believe.

    Did the Pelican come in before the GE?

    The Gulf Eagle came in first, and they had about three fish that were in the 90's, close to 100.

    The Pelican came in, and didn't want to wait on pictures, so they laid them out, gave them out, and then went to clean fish.

    Both boats were asked to leave Boudreaux! But I'll let those guys tell their stories, and they have some good ones!

    It was good to see everyone, TJ, Rue, Wayne, Jason and Amy, NTF, JP, Charlie, SKR and all the others.

    I dont understand why Noble Clyde asked them to leave.....arent they fishing at night? And excuse my ignorance but isnt the only reason for that is if a crew boat is coming in? They wouldnt start loading unloading off of a crew boat at night would they?

    Yes. It happened about 5 AM when we were there. One crew/supply boat was sitting there all night as usual when another gave up to Boudreaux. They lifted them up with a basket from the crane on the rig.

    Some of those crew boat Capt's are real arse's. I've them them yell at me for years. I can understand if they are using the boat to do their job loading and unloading to ask you stay off a few hundred yards. I wouldn't want anyone in my way if I was working.

    Sometimes they like to show their power by yelling at you over the VHF even though they are just tied off in a distance obviously just waiting for a shift change or red alert.

    Boudreaux warned both boats to maintain a one mile distance from the rig, which is legal according to the Gestopo security act. The limilt is at the descression of the rigs operator, some of which are fecal brained and others are decent people. There was a work boat there that told us it was holding fisn and that we could fish it.

    I forgot my camera and didn't do worth a hill of beans. One small YF and about 6 million tiny BF.
    We hit both Clyde and Diana, trolled, jigged, chunked, popped, sacraficed two virgins and caught a few fish, I want to say 30 YF and a couple hundred BF in the cooler.
    The OTI poppers worked very well. Most of the YF were picked off by trolling poppers.
    The trip was fun, the captians worked hard as did crews and fishermen, the fish just had lock jaw compared to previous trips.

    I went to the docks and saw lots of nice tuna. It sounds like that the fish were very picky and were hard to come by...but it looks like you guys did pretty well.

    I met Wacker and he showed me some canned tuna that he brought on the trip and explained how he cans the tuna....very cool! I even got to sample some of the canned tuna and it is great! He said that the canning of blackfin works as well as yellowfin...and tastes as good. I am looking into a pressure cooker so that I can can some tuna. (??? can can works in a sentence?). Anyway....thanks Wacker....nice tip.....and nice trip!
