booked the indy for the first time...springtime conditions! any other rocket scientists goin?
You're on with the most talented angler that I've ever fished with, that being John Collins. Boat's not bad either Betting you'll get a good swing at those BFT at some point too. Good luck!
john's a great guy- always willing to share his knowledge and experience on top of being a great fisherman. looking forward to learning a lot and experiencing a new(to me) ride.
any info on the indy would be appreciated. is it a wet boat(low to the water, deck awash) does it hold bait well? special rules for the slide, lining up for bait, boarding procedure etc etc
inquring minds need to know
Wet boat-not really, like most others. Lots of bait and easy to get too, no lines unless every one needs bait at same time. No rules for the slide except courtesy. Boarding procedure sucks, first come
thanks for this. i'll be there early as its a short walk from the vagabond
No rules fishing the slide or lines for bait. It is first come first serve for boating but you are given a number ad that’s your tackle spot as well as your rod storage Pretty easy. Food is great. Not a wet boat. Plenty of bait. Staterooms are awesome. One call for dinner.
Tackle area is unique - you get one assigned spot & unless you are one of the lucky 1st (to 6 or so) to board you will have a lower shelf spot or one against the back of the house about 20" wide and just about as deep. So, caution here if you have a tallish box that is strictly a top loader - just suggest being prepared to adjust on that. In addition to the usual outside bulkhead rod holders, the boat also provides rocket launcher type rod holders above the aft tackle box rack - 1 or 2 for each angler depending on load. Great boat, & yes not particularly wet ala Excel. Have a great rip!
thanks for the intel. plan to post a detailed report upon return
