nice one Piscophilic.
how did you get that fish to lay down its pectoral fin so that you could get a nice side picture. My fish all want to stick it out so that they don't really fit on bump board.

Thanks Ahi,

I have a long way to go if I'm going to catch you!

I got tired of the same problem, so I made the bump board with a "slit" in it so the fins have a place to go.

This board was originally started to be foldable to take up less space and as I was laying out the hinge locations I realized I could make a place for those pesky fins to go. Also, once the cat contest starts, I mount it on a couple of plywood pieces that make sit on the bottom of the boat in an upward facing "V".

If you look close at the picture you can see the slit and the plywood pieces in the middle.

Since the board is PVC, you know that the original design came form TubeDude! I'm attaching one of his pictures as well.

Nice! Every half inch helps. And that put us at an even 300, right? Goooooooo, SOUTH!

Thanks! I saw ice_sled out there this morning. Maybe he got his 3rd fish over 30"?

No 30 inchers today. Did not fish very long. The wind kept changing directions and it was hard to get a good drift. I rarely anchor. The gusts were also making me a little uncomfortable. The "Puddle Jumper" doesn't do well in the wind. So I give it up to fish another day. No skunk. Caught 4 cookie cutters.

Nice Cat, and the light works quite well. If I stand on my head at my computer desk I can see it just fine Wink

Helpful hint maybe: preview your post before you hit the final Post Reply clicker thingy.......if it is bass ackwards, you should be able to rotate it.

Thanks TC! That is ironic, I didn't realize the picture had rotated when I posted it. I was refering to the fish, the numbers on the yardstick and my logo. No matter how you rotate the picture, something is going to be upside downTongue
