12/05 Stripes!!!!!

Once again it seems when least prepared, We get a nice one!! Left Boynton inlet 8 A.M. enroute to Ft. Lauderdale for a Garmin electronics seminar and training class. Before turning to the South high speed troll a couple circles in front of Boynton inlet, Nice fish on for about 4 seconds in 180 then gone!:banghead after a couple more passes turned South nothing until Boca quick hit and gone!! 280 just south of Hillsboro nice fish on and soon after in the boat!!!! Felt good to get one again, And the family was happy to have fresh fish:thumbsup

    dang steve great report. why the hell do i go all the way to the bahamas ???? great pic.

    You know why, The first reason is your cell phone won't work over there and that's a good thing, 2nd while cleaning your fish o.k. To be in no hurry and drink a few yellow birds,O.K. To relax and not worry about work the next day your only concern is to make sure boat iced and ready!! We love it over there and look forward to spending more time there this year.

    We are watching for a weather window (between the kids sports etc)to get over there would love to meet up with you on the other side, after all you taught me the venturesome slide! I owe you

    The boat is our new Jupiter 34 Tournament Edition, I can honestly say it is the best boat that I have ever fished, I love it and hopefully will be fishing a lot this year. Thanks for the compliments.

    Steve, curious if you've fished other 34s, and if there's a noticeable difference in ride that you like, or if it's the outlay of the boat.

    Thinking the same here...

    I have fished the Venture 34 for several years and It was a solid incredible boat there was no boat like it at the time, However (my opinion) the newer ones were just not built like the earlier ones, 2010 fished the 33T Contender (now called a 35) Great riding boat just not the quality I hoped for, 2012 Fished a 32 Contender another great riding boat built to fish just not really built for the family and factory support was less than desirable.

    As for the Jupiter, First off dealing with the factory is very pleasant, They want to build you a first class boat the way you want it, The Jupiter has a superior finish, A soft ride, Very dry, Walk in console with side entry and a great layout, Not too many compartments just enough.

    As for fishing tomorrow, I ran the boat back from Lauderdale this afternoon did'nt fish but it looked fishy!! A lot more weed in the water than the day before, offshore a good color change inshore Sailfish balling up bait 40ft of water. Good Luck!!
