Argo well all this talk about tow ropes I was thinking I could save some gas and just hook up but I guess not. could always get a really good open array and tag some of them with my new electronics, if it is capable of it. I have not even turned them on yet.

Captn C I think your buddy boat helps you with details of fishing...I don't think they get to follow them around!


I don't see James passing out secret numbers to a bunch of newbies!

Or taking a bunch of them to where he caught the SKA record!

Argo Buddy Boat.....thats another thing I was thinking about. How does a boat that cruises 30 runs WOT 40 keep within range of a boat that cruises at 40 and WOT 55-60?

tpool,
No I used that boat as an example because that is what argo has. I fished the SKA in 1999. I own a boat that might qualify for the 23' and under class if I went to the SKA governing body. SeaCraft has re-named there 25' boat a 23' Tournament like Contender and Fountain.

It won't make everyone happy, but I still say the simplest method of making new comer feel they have a chance is to establish a 50 mile limit. Buddy boats...great idea it would help too.

Think about it....those guys are not running 70 miles plus because they like to burn fuel! They're not really doing just because they have "confidence in a spot". Well ok maybe it is because they do....I would too if I knew most of the rest of the boat in the field would never run that far. Those fish they catch "out there" don't see fish hooks nearly as often as they do at rig 538 or A-52 nor Stetson Rock.

But like it was said earlier....I won't fish it unless the wife wants to and she can't catch anything unless it's at the mall....so I'll just sit out there catching Barracuda's watching the same 60 boat run half way across the gulf to catch an nasty ol' Kingfish.

Good luck to all of you SKA guys, I hope y'all have flat seas on every tournament day!

James Howell Charles ain't gonna fish, anyway. Unless his bride forces him to. In that case, we are all in trouble, 'cause she can put some big fish on the boat.

Specialops Why don't we make a line at the end of the jetties and hand out 30+ lb kings to everyone

I fished it for 5 years with a 30 year old Sea Ray ( Mercruiser single engine) with a 70 gal tank and made it to 5 Nationals. And really when it came right down to it Nobody helped me a **** bit.
