    Great times Andy. Can't wait to do it again.

    Nice! We were less organized since it was the first shrimping trip on the new boat and only second trip out. All said, we had a blast, great water conditions, awesome photos of an overly curious deer in Ester Passage and a fair amount of shrimp to come home with.

    Think the multi-boat flotilla makes for a more social scenario for sure. Thanks for sharing.

    Great vids Bloodsport! Awesome time as always to sit on the hook bbq-ing and telling lies.
    Your proof that Steves shrimp crack bait and his square pots produce numbers. You kicked butt this year.

    Noticed in a few pics your wearing rain gear......rainy on your deck?

    Look forward to lots more this summer.

    NO YOU DIT'INT BK!

    Of course we were wearing rain gear. We're not afraid of the rain like you seemed to be tucked up under your tiny little awning. We had the entire back of our boat to move about freely and enjoy the real Alaska experience. You seemed to be confined to your little 3 foot area afraid to get wet. Darting back and forth to accomplish little tasks trying not to get any of that rain on you. So a couple of points for you...

    First, mine is much bigger than yours. It's longer, has more girth, has two huge, verile, motors to provide more thrust than your tiny little peanuts you call motors. It's also Black and you what they say... They tame the motion of the ocean if you know what I mean. Providing a real nice smoooottttthhhhhh ride.

    Second, when I decide to cover mine I can assure you it won't be with some Beverly Hillbillies tarp, duck tape and some tubing! Mine will be constructed with the help of a CAD program, from the finest materials available, self-lubricating materials to provide very smooth in and out retractability. No fussy zippers to deal with, just yank it out, put it up with the rigid, hard, polished metal rods and enjoy the atmosphere. All the women will want to pop heads on my boat, SO THERE!!

    Lolllllllllllllllllllllllllllll!!!!!!!!!
