    Nice. I Think I might have seen you out there this morning - looked like you were doing pretty well if it *was* you.

    That was great including the part at the end where you can see another fish swirling the surface of the water in the background.:thumb:

    Gloves really save my hands in the salt as I fish it at least 4 times a week. I dont mind the fish, its the salt and the cuts that it I don't like.

    Sometimes you have to get back to basics, and I find fishing the pram is a great way to connect with the fish. Of course I have my 'big' boat, but why even get it all wet when Im perfectly in the zone with as little as possible?

    I'll save the motor boat for bucktailin', Neah and Ucluelet, taking other people out, and when Im done playing with the slimers. Until then, Im perfectly happy with this set up.

    Shes an oldie but a goody. I can ride her all day long and put her away wet, she is willing to take a spin around the block a few more times with no complaints. Not bad for a 20+ year old pram that is water tight, has seen her share of lakes here in WA, OR and BC. Who cares what she not a prom queen, she is a fish catching machine and has some good MOJO.
