I've heard of Boomvang often but I havent a clue where it is.
well now is the time to do more than just hear about it gas up the boat and get after it...... it is a nice easy run ....fish most of the way out.. and (god i hope i don't jinx this) the seas are looking like some of the best yet this year.. and it won't be long before we have to deal with the tropical depressions etc...

OK, j.g looks like my deck hand is going to be back on Sun. So if I I could round up a crew then we might be interested in Buddy with you. How far from Freeport? Hold 230 gallons not sure if I would need to bring an extra 55 but can tell you for sure that I don't have the fuel to tow you 100 miles.......so better tune her up first.

230 gallons will be plenty i carry 170 and it is enough but being the scardy cat i am i put on 60 extra gallons.. and i carry an extra of everything except the kitchen sink.. anything short of major internal failure is fixable i'll call you tomorrow

Boomvang

Does anyone have any recent reports about the fishing around Boomvang/Nancen/Hoover? My data does not look favorable for that area right now, and I would like to get some reports from that area.
All the best,
Tom

Not super recent.

I fished Boomvang/Nansen last month. We did ok about typical for those platforms.

Going again this weekend but we are headed further East.

i was last out and fished nancen 2 months ago.... seems like a life time, so my results although good do not fall into the recent catagory.. gawd two months !! maybe thats why i've been kicking the dog. .....jim
