    What am I chopped liver? LOL

    Big brother is great! They talk and scheme behind my back about getting the boat all slimed up with chunks.... hehe


    Ha, not exactly chopped liver lol. Great video. Can't believe how much space that boat has in the cockpit.

    Hehe........ Paul probably got tired oif me yakking at him about how much room Grady cockpits have (since I've had three of them!).

    Great report and Happy B/Day! I have a 'Big' one of my own next week! :hairraiser

    I've never see a rod with the first eye, 90 degrees off to the rest but I think that I can see why..... Nice looking setups! Boat looks awesome too! Take good care of my future boat for when you move up again! :rotflmao

    Tell my fishing buddy I said "Hi"! :dance

    Gmon - are you back from St. Maarten yet?? Looked like another great trip.

    I told him that you were apparently in the vicinity on the previous trip, so he asked if we should hail you this time.

    Thx. All in all we probably fished 8-10 hours. We try to mix it up between family time and fishing. It's easy to forget that Joseph is only 9. He thinks he's invincible but even the energizer bunny eventually shuts down. I have to keep an eye on him, keep him hydrated etc... So we do our "BEST" with 2 adults and a kid :wink

    Yep, back from de islands! Finally finished off my Trip Report.......

    I'll send this Trip link to my New Zeaalnd bro-in-law so that he can see your rods. Plus, he's familiar with Gradys and there are a few down there running charters! He uses Newell rods where the line comes off the reel and goes INSIDE the rod blank and comes out at the end in a trumpet type tip and he swears by them. He'll be interested in seeing your new ones. Joseph was handing the fish like the rod was made for him! Wow! Some BIG dolphin too!

    Thanks for posting the Report! Looking forward to seeing my future boat some day! :hail

    Awesome video. On my last trip one of the guys had his go pro so finally we were going to get a tuna video. So we left it on when we got in to some good fish when he got home only 2 min of video. He forgot to erase the memory card. Oh well I guess you and Joseph have to come on the next trip over.

    As always, awesome. Just got caught up on most of your Youtubes. Love the solo reactions. Looks like you got "Minnie Me" dialed in.

    I am just imagining what could have been caught if the bananas weren't on the boat!!

    We read / hear of folks turning around because they forgot the bait or tacklebox at the ramp... I've been known to turn around because I forgot the bananas on the kitchen counter :banana

    Just one word....WOW....you nailed it again, what a time over there! And a very very happy belated birthday to you! We are hitting Lubbers early September, may need some tips from you guys!
  • PaulBoatPaulBoat Posts: 4,389 Officer
    Well done. I like how the video progresses from spotting the flock to fighting the fish, to gaffing them and finally, the tally. I enjoy the family photos as well as that's what it's all about.

    Just for you.... here's the family fun time part of the trip... :wink

    I had a smile on my face the entire time watching that video. No fish, but just as good if not better than the other video!! Song choice was perfect. I had no doubt you would be able to satisfy the family and get on the fish. I like the beginning where Sarah was serious and on her tablet, then seconds later when she's on camera again, she's as silly as she should be. Thanks for the video.

    By the way, have you already thought about getting a matching penn torque? Can't just have one, right? When you have a boat, all combos need to be in at least pairs.

    I'm glad you all liked both videos.

    So true Long... Why is it that we always want / buy tackle in pairs? One for each side? I doubt it though. If the kids wouldn't be upset, it would've made its way back to Tuppens.

    You know restarting this thread is like slowly turning a knife into my heart. I am already prepping the new reels, checking the rod selection, buying the pink 60# Fluro for the 4x circles, buying the Spro swivels, debating on the pink 100# Fluro for live bait 4x hooks, and on and on and on........ It's a sickness we all share no matter the species. Only thing that makes me feel better is betting (great odds in my favor) Paul has already started packing and stock piling for the 2015 Family Trip lol
