    Very nice job on the fish.

    Curious, how big is your Parker? Looks like a 2320 or 2520 from the picture with the three of you standing but I could be wrong; love the bait area you added in the center, simple but effective.

    Oh, and you were smart to avoid the weekend. About eighty boats out there right now as I type this. More boats than fish.

    Hello Josh!

    If you want me to be really honest…I put my whole heart into this. I can't tell you how passionate I am about the hunt. From studying the water, reading in-between lines of reports, making my own assessments and just really trying to put myself in the right position….allows for some successes.

    I admit it. Ive had skunk trips too but have not posted about them much. Ive always said from day one that Im been lucky many instances. I go out with the mentality of just knowing that each day is different and we just have to enjoy our company, the process, and the journey and allow the catch to be the bonus.

    i know its been a rough year for many…but dont give up … just continue to be a student of the sea and be open to new ideas and methods.

    Thanks for the kind words… let me know if I can help in any way.

    Great question!

    Im doing both. I have a really big bait tank for my size boat….so I'm always chumming 1-2 pieces every few minutes, if not more. With our dead bait or beat up bait, i cut up some as chunk…..but just seen a little more action with the live chum.
