just got back from a overnight to west Atlantis. Started very slow and continued slow. There were a couple of guys picking away at longfins here and there but nothing substantial. We did pick up two nice eyeballs at 5:00 PM west of west atlantis a third hit a spreader but the hook must not have set to well cuz it popped after a while but with only four guys on the boat we were happy to keep the chaos to a minimum

Both ate joe shoots set just behind the bars in 450ft water around 71 degree water

i heard some guys caught a few in the morning right around were we hooked up the evening before on the west. But we set up on the eastern wall for the night and went to the deep water in the early morning. How did you guys end up?

Quick Pictures of the boat

Heres a few pictures that i snapped today. My father is the one who built the boat. He got it out of the mold with the motor, shaft, and rudder post set. Other then that it was all him. he has tons of picture of the full build that i plan on posting at some point. I need to scan them all in so we have digital copies and ill show the full project.

Shes about 225 gallon short on fuel in the pics. Im pretty sure that we havent raised the waterline the front. when the boat was still just rough fiberglass in the front i marked the watetline with a sharpie. Since then we added alot making it look real bow heavy. I know its on the to do list this winter along with fresh paint and non-skid on the house section. And maybe a green stick if i can make him believe!

Bad ass rig. I like that there's piece of headliner out and wires showing. About perfect otherwise. What's the power and reduction?

Congrats on the BE's! Funny how everyone seems to think you can't catch an 'eye unless you're out in the deep. We got ours in 570' last year..

Gorgeous boat too!
