    Sooo nice to get back out there and take it all in.

    Negative but the Pineapple vodka makes up for it, it will make you wish there where. Excellent stuff, not your dark pirate liquid but it is more fitting, sitting out on the deck in a warm night breeze.

    Hey Sculpin.. nice table. What is size and how do you stack traps??

    Thanks! The table is just big enough to hold 4 full size Bauer traps on edge. There is a pic of mine with the traps in the current boat projects thread :).

    PB pop by or give me a call and I'll show you the 8 trap model. My is a bit different. It's sloped slightly without the front lip as I want to use as cleaning table at home during the summer. Or better yet lets just go prawning again with my new set up :)

    Good thing for those small holes in the corners Eh John. If they were bigger the sorting table would of been a releasing table LOL

    There was quite a bit of bird activity and we were marking bait balls and fish on the sounder. Next trip out I'm going to bring the trolling gear:).

    I was at Tent island on boxing day..... We put in about 4 hours very slow...Didn't try Bold Bluff along the ledges yet... I can concur what Sculpin said marking lots of bait..

    Looks like you are in some kind of fabrication area. I am looking at one unit almost same as yours except little different supports to keep table above lid of my live well. Do you make these up??

    Thanks Fisherf, are you saying that there are more fish now than then? It seems counter-intuitive.
