    First Fish on the New Boat!! SI 2/6/13

    Been looking to upgrade my bayboat and after 5 months of searching I finally came accross my new baby....a 2007 Triton 240 LTS!!! Had to go to Tx to get her but now she's mine. So after getting her here, I decided to go out and see if the Triton could catch fish or not.

    We made quick work of a livewell full of threadfins and hit the inlet. On the first drift we had a double hook-up on jumbo redfish. Mine came unglued but my wife whipped hers into submission. Below is a video of her battle with the first fish(besides bait) to come over the rails of the Triton.

    Here is a still pick of the fish as well.





    We fished for another hour and caught several more big reds, a couple of over-slot snook(sorry, pics came out blurry), and half a dozen good size bluefish.

    Here's my wifes 3rd big red of the night.



    I couldn't be happier with how the Triton performs and I will definetely be posting more on here now that I have the time to get out there again. And, as always, Tight Lines!

    Nothing better than the 1st successful trip on a new boat... I love my Triton... I'm on my 2nd 22'r now & I don't think I'll ever own anything else in the ~22' class... I'll never understand why anyone would pay MORE for a P.........
    Congrats & enjoy !!!

    @ ReelStamas ....yes, I love this boat!!! I had been looking for one for months. I called about this one and agreed to buy(pending being checked out by a mechanic) about 4 hours after he posted the ad. I went to pick it up 6 days later and he said he had gotten 17 calls about it!! Glad I jumped on it when I did.

    @OntheEdge...Yes, the Mrs. can fish. The very first time I took her out she lands a 20+lb, 32" Mutton out of SI. Her very first snook was a 40 incher, and her first red was over 45". She is my good luck charm.

    @FishdFlats...Thank you. The inlet was crystal clear which can make fishing a little tough sometimes but we were able to put some fish in the boat.
