    Excel or Intrepid??

    Excel all the way. Been on both, my largest complaint about the intrepid is the rod holder situation.

    Offshore 499, Snail, and Mackeral Banks

    You know I told the guys on the boat this same thing. I did nothing to special. I had a chrome iron rigged with wire that swam or had a good kick. I fished it on the slide everytime a triller was bit
