I'm Back with a new Boat!

So it's been a long time since I sold the Sea Boss and pretty much quit fishing except a few rare times I was able to make it out on some friends boats etc. Well, I finally got a great deal on a 2017 Pathfinder 2300 at Tuppen's. I had Birdsall fabricate and install a killer T-top and some custom rod holders. 
I love the new boat! The I-Pilot trolling motor is a game changer! Run & gun is a whole new game same with bottom fishing. When I find what I like I drop the trolling motor and cut the engine till it's time to move on. The spot lock works pretty **** good considering the current I've been fishing in. It holds strong and effortlessly. 
I've been doing a ton of fishing the past month or so. Here are some pics to spice up the report. 
Enjoy & keep those lines tight guys!


BUDA

The T-top has a triple color spreader light along with a LED head light that lights up the Loxahatchee like a airport runway!

The under water light really attracts bait off shore and while fishing the lights


Spot lock does the job!
The Peanuts are getting a little bigger, thank the lord!
I don't normally eat them raw like that but it was pretty good. That little guy hit a whole sardine!


Under gunnel lights, console lights, compartment lights, IDK where else you can ad lights...The 250 V-Max is great motor, very easy on gas and fast!
I love some fried fish and hush puppies!
Ceviche for breakfast everyday this week!
That Triple tail is so **** goooooood! Panko blackened is my new crave!

    I can't remember the model number of the GPS or transducers but here's a better photo of the Garmin. The step hull requires dual transducers. It reads bottom pretty good up to 35-40 mph. I've had decent bottom reading all the way out to 1800' but only at drift speed.

    Thanks Shoeless! I was just watching your Bahamas video. We got my first Blue Marlin on the fourth of July. The plan was to run over to the Bahamas on my brother in laws Sea Vee but we got cut off by a nasty lightning storm and decided to blind troll around it. We said a little prayer and 2 minutes later we were fighting a Marlin! Our fish was a little smaller than yours but we had it on light tackle! 
    The fish spit the hook in my face as soon as we touched the leader so I didn't get a good pic of the fish. 


    For some reason I can't post the other pics of me fighting the fish. It was still awesome! 

    I'm considering running the Pathfinder to West End if I can find a buddy boat and a couple sure thing calm days. Let me know if anyone wants to head over there together.

    What kind of head light do you have? I’m looking for something to put on my top for running at night. My girlfriend freaks out at night cause she can’t see the channel markers.

    That's "superclean"!  :smile:
  • Reel MullarkeyReel Mullarkey Posts: 1,834 Captain
    It’s a small L.E.D. Spreader light. I’ll snap a picture tomorrow for you. It doesn’t look like much but it lights up the markers for as far as I can see.

    Good luck with it. Maverick makes  fine boats and stands behind them if you have any problem. Thats a Garmin 7612 and you probably have either th50 or th51 transducers if you have side scan.

    Congrats on the new boat . Looks super sweet.
    Yeah that Trolling motor with spot lock is awesome, I virtual anchor to bottom fish. If it's slow in spot I jog over a few feet. Better than double anchoring with out the hassles.
