We locked down first day to Pool 4 wow what a ride that was. We all know who has the fastest boat on the river now after that. And yes Chad it has a black motor. Anyway, we caught our 5 on frogs in the pads and shakey heads on the jetties. The fog delay killed our frog bite on Sunday as we only had about a 45 minute window when they would hit it in the morning for some reason. Couldnt get anything goin on the shakey and we zeroed on Sunday. Got caught out on the lock as they had changed the times and didnt tell everyone evidently. There were several of us in there that happened to. A bunch of very unhappy people sad to say. It was fun though and the weather cooperated wonderfully and we will back again next year.

Saturday 2 guys got thrown out of there Gambler. Each one of them flew out of the boat about 30 yards in the air. Apparently hit a wave and threw the boat sideways and out they went...

Seems like an unnecessary accident waiting to happen.

How fast is his Puma? I passed every Phoenix I saw in my Cougar FTD. Only guy that passed me was in a Puma FTD with a 300 Verado.

I passed every kind of boat in the event at one point or another! I did it in my ZX20 to. Went by them like they were sitting still that maybe because they were!
