    4 forum members met on the SS Minnow(not real name) at 3am yesterday morning. Yes! 3am!

    So....

    Just sit right down, and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a successful trip...that started from Mission Bay aboard a tiny ship.....

    With Gilligan, the Skipper too....The Professor and MaryAnn......Yup you got it...no Mrs Howell or Ginger. No girlie girls on this voyage!

    Short Version:
    Met MB at 3am
    Bought Bait
    Drove 60 miles South
    Found Fish
    Caught Fish
    Bled Fish
    Gutted and Gilled Fish
    Put fish on ice
    Drove around a lot
    Ate a lot
    Laughed a lot
    Drove Back
    Stopped at some islands
    Drove back to MB

    Final Count:
    20 Skipjack (C&R or farmed 10 others)
    1 Big Bonito

    MaryAnn is no girly girl! This girl guts, gills and bleeds her own fish! This girl was good luck and she’s very fishy!

    MaryAnn missed catching Bass.......She caught two small Calicos in less than 5 minutes....

    The Skipper let Gilligan (me) drive the boat......He caught so many fish, his back went out.

    They block out their faces to protect their identity. There is nothing worse than finding a school of tuna and having one of them pop their head out of the water and recognizing the Giligan Island Crew and sounding the alarm to the rest of the school to get the hell out of there or face being slain.

    Well, it all started when I met this really fishy dude Werfless. He explained why in all his pictures he wears a face mask...Even in 110 degree Imperial Valley. It made sense to me and I agreed with his logic as it mirrored my feelings.

    So, ever since, as a friend and fellow fish slayer of “the Coach,” I either wear a face mask or black out my face....

    Especially with others since I don’t ask them if it’s ok to post their pics or being overprotective of my family.....It’s either a face mask or buff or a blacked out face......

    Sorry if it offends.....Blame Werfless and this crazy world we live in......
