juro Co-worker from the seeing-eye bird maker in Hood River landed a 34" summer buck in an hour's casting on the Klick the other day.

OC Hey Juro, see you this summer in the Hood.

Fred, ya going to SA can be a street fight a lot of times but they treated me well. That thread I was informed sold another Boreal.

Come out and visit us.

FredA On a whim I checked out the cruising forum on sailing anarchy the other day. Found your updates in the French centerboard thread. Excellent posts. Great tech talk, even for the sailing no-nothing but technically curious like myself.

FredA Good to hear from you Steve as I was getting concerned about the silence. But there was nothing in the news about a gringo getting ate by a croc so I didn't pay it too much mind..

Still mired in projects here on the Cape. Fishing has be luke warm and cold, water temps have been on the cool side. Usually I'm wet wading, at least on sunny days, by Memorial day but not this year. I guess it could be an age thing also.

OC Tracy was back in the states for a couple of weeks and me and a young German guy sailed between Islands in Eastern Caribbean. This pic was taken by one of the race boats headed for Antigua Race Week. We held them off for over an hour before they passed us. They were impressed that a cruising centerboard boat sailed so well to windward. Sorry about the sail trim, once they passed us I started adjusting sails to slow down and just enjoy the ride.
Sea this day 4 meters and winds 25 to 30 KTS. Easy sailing for the new flats boat.

Sailing between islands is fun because it usually only takes about 4 or 5 hours before your sitting in a bar and your boat is anchored close by.

OC I guess I should put a fish pic in the mix. Sailfish hooked and released in only 6 meters of water about 100 meters off the coast of Panama's Caribbean side.

No not on a fly rod, next time.

OC Now that Tracy and I are back in the Hood I'll try and post a few pictures. For give me if they don't come out right, 1st time trying.

So this is what our new flats boat can do! We are anchored in 1.3 meters of water by a deserted Island in the San Blas Islands, Caribbean side of Panama. Great flats fishing and the jungle rivers have some really big Tarpon.

juro I'll be back in the 'hood July, let's get a beer I want to hear some world traveler tales

Great update Steve. Sounds like a lot of fun in the sun, hope to see you soon I still have same cell #

OC Boat goes on the hard tomorrow and we will be back in states soon. A lot harder putting boat on hard in tropics than for winter back in states. Two weeks of hard work in temps of 95 and 90% humidity. Loose weight though!

Next year here we will fly fish a lot more as I'm starting to get how it works on the flats and the jungle rivers. Tarpon are big in rivers really big but I don't dare fish for them in the inflatable because of 4 meter long crocks. Ya got to keep the inflatable moving in those rivers or else.

Coming back from San Blas Islands under sail and in less than 6 meters of water caught and release a beautiful sail fish on the hand line we troll behind the boat. That was a shock. We seem to be hell bent on bill fish this year when we only want food, I don't have room in my freezer for 200 pounds of marlin.

Most xclnt....

OC that all sounds as close to perfect as any plan yet!
03-28-2014 10:46 AM
OC Oh I forgot on trip from Antigua to Panama we caught and released 3 marlin in 3 days on the hand line. Scarry stuff I must say. we have some great video but I need to learn how to deal with it one of these days. biggest was about 200 pounds.
