SLC 10-28-2011 Plane Fish N and Crew..VIDEO ATTACHED!!!!!

The Plane Fish N left Sandsprit at 7:15 am with the most awesome crew::thumbsup

Eric (Plane Fish N), Dan (Reel C's), Jerry (Lucky Us) and Sean (Shoeless).

After 3 quick tosses of our cast net, we had about a dozen and half of beautiful finger mullet and headed offshore. :dance

We were greeted by 2 to 3' seas that were between 3 and 5 seconds apart... a little sloppy. :banghead

When we hit 100', we put out a spread of skirted hoos. 2 were on the outriggers and 2 were flatlined behind the boat.

We also put a yellow and green squider about 20 feet in the prop wash.

When we hit 150' we were on a solid weedline and decided to troll north and south to see if we could pick up a phin. NADA! :shrug

About 10 minutes in the troll, we bring in our first BFT on the squider.

Then, the left rigger goes off and it is a sail. He jumps several times and although there was no slack in the line, he spits the hook. Bummer!

We troll a bit more and in the next hour, bring in another 5 respectable sized BFT's.

Just before 11:00am, Irving the Sailfish (Psycho Freddies brother) is on and running. Running so much , that I am in danger of being spooled despite the drag being set beyond the strike.

All of a sudden, Irving takes a turn for our boat and I recover all my line. :beer

After about 25 minutes or so, Irving is boatside with his head on the gunwale and the hook is expertly removed. Irving is then revived (not really revived as he was still VERY GREEN). :willynilly

I had a video all worked out and after almost 2.5 hours of working on it, I kept getting some errors and it wouldn't upload. :cry

Stay tuned for the video.

Hope everyone had a great day and make sure you keep "tight lines."

Cheers

Still had problems with the video as many of the action shots wouldn't load up so be kind.

At 3:45, the second sail was on and we de-hooked and released him at 5:03.

Enjoy.

    Nice report we all will wait for the video. Looks like I missed a fun trip,as I tie her to a hard rain has canceled a planned trip with Tom and I. Looks like the weather is will be rough for the next several days so it's time to clean up the fishing equipment.
    GOOD LUCK TO ALL FROM TEAM LET'S GO,

    Sounds like a great day on the water for sure. How was the boat show yesterday Eric? Thanks for the offer to go. We picked my wife up a new Civic. Couldn't pass up the free 3yr maintanence special and the 1.9% financing.

    Eric great video I like the music the intro sure suit you. As usual, you guys have the best trips and editorialize them to the fullest. I bet that Jerry was tickled with those Blackfins, as he remarked the other day that they are tasty. The weather will probably have us grounded or in port for the next several days.
    GOOD LUCK TO ALL FROM TEAM LET'S GO,

    Rowerybo,

    Thanks buddy! :thumbsup

    Sean,

    It was my pleasure Pal. Thanks for making it a fun day on the water. :machinegun

    Bo,

    We really missed you my friend. It was a great day on the water but it would have been greater if you had been aboard. Next time, send Bones in your place. :dog Hell, he even knows how to fillet. :grin

    Patrick,

    Thanks. Yeah, we saw the window of opportunity and seized the moment so to speak. We got lucky with the weather. As you can see in the movie, there were storms all over the place..... just not where we were. :hairraiser

    Paul,

    You are too kind. I have the Go-Pro and Dan has the contour. I like his camera set up better than the Go-Pro as the camera is on the side of the head versus in the front HOWEVER.... mine is water proof and his isn't. That's a huge plus for the Go-Pro. Next time, I'm going to try and get some underwater shots of the fish coming in. If you have any questions, PM me. :fishing

    Michael,

    It was fun by NOTHING like the 3 Buoys Team. Your days are epic. :hail I will say that we do have a lot of fun though regardless.

    Capt. NoBait,

    Thanks for the kind comments. You are right.. nothing to complain about. We got out on the water, caught a few fish and made it home in time to miss the downpours. :banana

    Jeff,

    It would have been nice for you to be there and you got a new car to boot but honestly, I personally prefer the Palm Beach show to the Ft. Lauderdale show. I think there is more fishing and boating accessories at the Palm Beach show. We actually dodged the storms down there also. It was a lot of fun. We had Dan (Reel C's), Jerry (Lucky Us), Chad (The Sailman), Evan (No Limits) and myself. Ended up with 3 extra tickets and we gave them to 3 people from Germany who thought they won the lotto. :cookoo

    Dan,

    You are DA MAN when it comes to video. It was strange but my Windows Movie Maker started to screw up again. That's why I stopped adding some special effects towards the end. I figured I better upload quickly before it dies again.
    Thanks for all your help. :applause

    That is one day you guys will never forget. I feel for your grandkids they will have to listen to it a hundred times. Back in the day and so forth. Awesome:fishing

    With you and Andy trying to out do each other on videos we will be the winners to enjoy them.:applause

    Dan,

    Thanks buddy. I used the Go Pro head strap however I need to lower the camera.

    The other problem was I shot it in HD however when I uploaded it on YouTube, I screwed up and uploaded it in low density.

    I know what to do next time.

    I'm still "green" with this thing but we will work on it. :shrug


    Bearmatic,

    Oh man.. that has to be the best part of having them isn't it???? :grin

    cheers guys

    Great day!

    It's always fun when you can get out with the crew AND catch fish!
    Knowing is half the battle. The other half is violence.

    9 out of 10 times alcohol IS the answer.

    Thanks Jah Son,

    Did you get out before the seas kicked up this week?

    Hey, you may know. How may I put the YouTube video that I have on this post onto my desktop to show whomever without having to sign on the internet????

    If anyone else knows how to do this, please chime in.

    Thanks all .
