I recently purchased my first boat and this was her maiden voyage in salt h2o. Despite what others have said with regards to this boat, she handled like a dream. We spent close to 10 hours on the water - running all over the place, and she used a whole 10 gallons of gas. This boat couldn't fit my needs any better. If anyone has been keeping any eye on one, give me a holler and I'll fill ya in on the details. Here are a few pics…



















It had been over a month since I have been able to make a cast into salt h2o. I had waited long enough so I gave my two best fishing buds a ring and we planned a trip for Saturday.



Enough of the small talk… We launched at one of the two open boat ramps in the greater Galveston Bay complex looking for a topwater bite at first light.







There were a few scattered Trout to be found…











The bite really was not all that great but we did manage a few fish. It's hard to complain about not catching anything considering the present state of the Galveston area. We were exploring some new water, so a haul really was not expected. It was nice to be on the water with two good buddies fishing and having a great time doing just that.


We cruised around a bit looking at some of the damage Ike left behind. The Eagle Point area was hit pretty hard.





At the end of this video you will hear me talk about a green house that is no longer there. That was my buddy's old fish camp. Nothing left but the slab. Amazing….

After a small lunch on the water, we pulled the boat out and drove to ramp #2 that happens to be in working order. There were quite a few trailers in the parking lot so I didn't feel so bad about taking the new boat to an area I had never fished. The debris really wasn't all that bad at either spot. There were a few random floating pieces of wood, but nothing like I had expected. It was very helpful having two additional sets of eyes on the lookout though.



We couldn't find any Redfish to save our lives but got into a few more Trout right off the bat.











That actually was quite a surprise, as we were fishing water less than a foot deep in most places.















We did find a decent Flounder (20") that found his way in the cooler only to be fed to some lucky individual at a later time.







We kept a little ole' Trout (21") that swallowed a Gulp as well.







I hope others were able to get out and spend a little time on the water as well. Tight lines…
