15 minutes of net throwing resulted in 200 gizzards.
We headed out a little early but I figured we would be in the neighborhood when the birds started working. Dropped an anchor on scattered fish and started beating the water. It didn't take a minute and we were catching doubles and triples. Kept 42 at that spot in about an hour, then left them in search of bigger fish. Never found anything over 8 lbs. birds were working in multiple places but I never saw fish thicker than the first anchor. We released another 19 fish and came in. The bite at 9am today wasn't anything like 7:30am. Earlier was way better.
All caught on live baits.
I'm ripping the floor out of my boat, repainting the hull, new upholstery and galvanizing my trailer in the next couple of months, so I'll be off the water till that is all finished. Be safe out there.

James, they sell new boats and trailers!

Curious is this an older trailer? Is it channel or tubing.

All my boats since '76 have had galvanized trailers. Only way to go. I've heard aluminum sometimes float?

Kahuna, it is the original 08 channel, Roadrunner trailer that Falcon used. Two of the guides I work with have alluminum trailers. No issues but they run $3,500
Bandit, same place Gary got his done. Donny, in Kingston. He is going to strip all of the surge brake stuff off, put new springs, bushings, wiring, lights, and galvanize it. About half the price as a new one.

Good report James and good luck with the trailer.

Does the guy you are using have the equipment to take the boat off the trailer while he rebuilds it?

My trailer is showing signs of corrosion etc and I keep praying that a spring doesn't pop on the road.  I don't know what a trailer spring life is but I have to be approaching it....

I have a an aluminum trailer, but prefer galvanized steel because there is less flex and easier to fix.
