    Buckdoe, Willie and I are making a skipjack run saturday and we have room for one more. If you want to ride along and chip in on the gas money and bullshi**ing let us know.

    I can't join you guys on Saturday due to a prior committment however depending on how much I get done this week there's a good chance I can get away on Thursday for some skips. I'll have a couple seats open for anyone that wants to go along if I end up going.

    It happens Will. Don't sweat it. I can't get away tomorrow either. Too busy with things around here and Lisa needs the extra help. She had surgery yesterday to have a vein anneurism removed from her hand. They ended up cutting a 2 1/2 inch slice up her left thumb to get it out. The surgery went well and she is doing great but I don't dare leave her one handed with the Jackman alone lol. I'll have to catch you guys next time.

    Nanner hope Lisa is doing better today after the surgery.
    on the skipjack count, how more skips do we need for the trip ?
    if we can post up many you have, when i go to CC i know hard i have to fish and stay to
    get what we need. they was early post about 130 per day est. , 4 day trip means est. 780 for
    6 boats.

    Mike it's pretty safe to plan on 100 - 125 skipjacks per boat for the entire 4 days. You'll only go through 25-30 a day max. I know this last batch the guys got were all huge ones so you'll need less than that. If the boat your riding in has a cumulative total of 125 or so you'll be golden.

    Thanks for the well wishes with Lisa. Her hand is doing ok this morning and she's out the door for a hair appointment. You can't slow that woman down lol

    Well we ( Rat, Stitch and Myself) got to Cumberland City @6:30 am thursday the 14th,and the SLAUTER Began------------We TORE THEM UP. If you casted out and didnt bring in a Double It was because 1 got off the line,Triple catches were not uncommon. --WOW WHAT A HOOT!!! 2 1/2 hours later, and everything we had to put fish in was full.
    We ended up with 235 lbs. of fish It was a Beautiful Day (unless you were a Skipjack)
