First time viewer on this thread have gotten minimal work done since 9am flipping through all 3200 posts. all I can say is we have some amazing photographers on the GS and also loved everyone who shared family pics both old and new. Congrats to all those who have added new members to their families over the years on this thread and my condolences to those who lost members over the years who shared pics on this thread. I would have to say though to me this is the best and perfect thread if I had to pick one to show an outsider to explain what the GS is all about it would be this one. From all the Wildlife photos to the family photos to the photos of successful hunts and fishing trips, pics of military service and all of the other fascinating things yall have done and shared with us on this thread. I am willing and excited to take the chewing from the bossman today due to my lack of effort (lol) because this thread is awesome!

It's an non-toxic dye. Apparently they ran a pipe test, checking for leaks and used this dye mixed with seawater to conduct their tests.

Pretty darn freaky when viewed as shot.

Last Saturday with the SA Shriners - great trip with a bunch of kids!




Ex-Navy and an offshore compadre through the years - Chuck.


Chelsea loves her new AtTheWall built Calstar 700H Custom offshore rod.


The young ladies are hooked up on some decent Snapper



Trolled the old trusty DIRTY 30 out and back into port



76 Snapper on a 5 hour trip - Endangered Species my ARSE!





Chelsea breaks the ice with her new Calstar fishing rod!


A little fresh lunch is in order



3 minutes in the Microwave with some fresh spices - lunch offshore!

No microwave needed if someone has a bottle of soy - wasabi and or ponzu sauces.



Kids had a blast, everyone caught fish and went home with a limit of prime/quality Red Snapper. 5 hours offshore - enough day left to enjoy the rest of the happenings around the Coastal Bend.

Middle of the day around 100 degrees - tossed lures - caught a mess of dinks and chugged water - excellent day! Burned fuel....been about 3 months since I've run the skiff.

19" & two 18" Florida Pompano (Texas Permit )

One of the most expensive fish per pound in the world is FLORIDA POMPANO

Caught several Chopper Blues & the rare Eating Size Croaker

Dozens of Bull Whiting - the size you can cut a 10" filet per side

Fake baits FISH BITES with custom colored hook float leaders and Owner #4 hooks

Getting Rare in the surf - croakers used to run the suds by the millions. Now you are lucky to catch one big enough for the box. I released this one.



Chopper Bluefish. Lotta bite offs in the suds this time of the year are contributed to these fish. Serious teeth and voracious feeders - anything moves get hit.




Estimated 3 - 4 lb Pompano. Fishing 15lb test on an AKIOS 666 reel, they rip line off the reel and run the bars during hookup. Fun on light long distance casting tackle.

My longest Pompano to date taped 22" last year. The Texas State Record taped 24" and went 6lbs.


Casts around 120 - 140 yards puts the bait in their zone - the bigger Pomps.
