    Ok, Here's the deal. Got w/ Keith (piepuncher) and we are taking our boats
    down the friday after t/g to fish Sat, Sun, come home Mon.
    I've got Rich Tran confirmed already, so I need 2 more experienced anglers, preferably one that can use a gaff effectively if I'm hooked up. bring your own gear, limited to 3 rigs per angler
    1- chunk/troll
    1-popper
    1- jigger

    cost split will be for fuel down/back, boat gas, food, & lodging. this should not be more than $1250-1300 total, split 4 ways.
    My boat is a 22' Hydra-sports deep-V cc w/ T-top,VHF and good color electronics/gps. fully insured, w/ all necessary safety equip on board.

    Storage space is minimal, so if you're interested, be ready to condense
    gear to make space for fish. If anybody has a 160-200q Ice chest they can lend me, that'd be great, too

    contact me here, or email: [email protected]
    or email: [email protected]
    or call: 972-567-1563

    thanks & tight lines
    -Brian Nesbit

    *SIDE NOTE* Keith already has his crew filled(I think), but there is the possibility of another 25' Triton walkaround going down w/ us, and he might need a crew as well, so dont be bashful, boys!

    I'm taking 3 outfits, few poppers and jigs...and some leader. I don't think anything will spool what I am taking.

    I think the odds of getting good weather that weekend isn't very good. 2 out of the last three years there have been as many fishable days in nov as fingers on your hand. Good luck. I would watch the weather. A 22 ft boat isn't very fun in 5 fters. Make sure to tag along with eddie or someone else and mark your gps every 100 yards in the river. Fog can be a *****. Wingdams also



    Good luck and watch out for those swamp women

    Rick- I plan on going out to the 17-mile rig & work our way around & back in
    I'm a little concerned about the passes, but I know I'll be in good Company.
    as far as mileage, the boats runs right @ 2.2-2.5 mpg w/ 4 men & gear.
    85 tank. by the time of the trip, I'll be able to troll a 4-rig spread.
    Of Course we're going for the yellows! but I might degrade myself with a couple AJ's or a mahi if I can!

    D-A- got your pm, need to discuss w/ other guys if they can absorb the
    diff. in fuel cost down there. I will also be discussing the trip w/ another boater this weekend so i may be looking to build 2 crews.

    Jared- you make a good point, but w/ the wacky weather in the gulf all year,
    who knows? I will definately be watching the reports & talking to Eddie a lot
    don't even want to be in 3-4's, but the boat has already proven itself in 8's
    w/ the previous owner. the 1 photo I have of it came w/ the boat and it's enough to make you sick!

    Update: got most of a crew formed...
    1.) Brian Nesbit (lite-liner)- Duh!
    2.) Rich Tran (PurEvl)-Confirmed
    3.) Joe Livingston (Margarita Mojo)-Confirmed
    4.) Ryan Dennehy (Ryno)- Tentative

    still need a couple standby's just in case.
    Reservation for 1 cabin/2-nights is confirmed @ Venice Marina
    Joe sez we can pull the boat w/ his diesel ford crew-cab, so fuel might be cheaper, now. thanks, Joe!
    Man I can already smell the Sashimi.........

    If seas are not over five and winds are not ripping, I will be in. I have one maybe two spots open. My boat has tons of walk around room. 100 gallon fuel tank. Pope, if you can make it until monday, you are welcome. I have 24 rod holders, so you are welcome to bring what you need. As of now things look good for me. I am selling motorcycle to help pay to get truck fixed. High pressure oil pump went out. sucks.
