11/21 - Next BIG job....on the Jetty๐Ÿบwolf

 https://www.captdaves.com - Jacksonville Coastal Fishing Charters since 1996


BIG J-O-B, VIDEO COMING

ORDERED THE NON-SKID PAINT, THE SAME AS THE BOAT CAME WITH 16 YEARS AGO.

IT'S VERY AGGRESIVE, AND I LIKE THAT. AT LEAST IN THE STERN WHERE ALL THE HEAVY TRAFFIC IS.

BOUGHT THE ''CARPET'' ROLLER NEEDED TO MAKE IT AGGRESIVE, A PAN, AND SOME THROW AWAY BRUSHES. PLUS A AGGRESIVE SCOURING GRINDER PAD, SO TO TAKE OFF SOME OF THE OLD THAT CHIPPED FROM A BOTCHED SUMMER PAINT JOB I DID, AFTER WE CUT THE DECK AND ADDED THE NEW FUEL TANK.   

THIS PAINT APPLIES BEST BELOW 70 DEGREES. I NEVER HEADED THOSE INSTRUCTION, LAST TIME.

HOPEFULLY A FEW LAYERS WILL COME OFF WITH THE GRINDING WHEEL I GOT. TESTED IT ON A OLD DECK PIECE CUT OUT, FROM WHEN I ADDED A SECOND FUEL TANK INSPECTION HATCH. SEEMS TO WORK ON THE DECK PAINT THAT WAS LEFT ON THE SCRAP PIECE.  ALWAYS GOOD TO PRE-TEST THINGS THAT ARE POSSIBLY PERMANANT.

THE START OF DECEMBER WILL BE BUSY. BECAUSE I'M ALSO RENEWING MY USCG LICENSE TOO. AT LEAST IT'S ALL JUST ''PAPER-WORK'' NOW. GOT THE PHYSICAL, AND HAD MY DRUG SCREENING ALREADY.


HERE'S THE DECK NOW....''LOOKING KINDA SAD''.
































TODAY, I DECIDED TO GO BACK TO A ''VERY CLEAR STERN DECK''....AGAIN.

MOVING OUT MY 120 DIVIDED ICEY-TEK, THAT'S USED AS A SHRIMP BAIT WELL, AND A FISH BOX, BEHIND THE LEANING POST.

 INSTEAD, WENT BACK TO THE 25 QT. ICEY-TEK UNDER THE LEANING POST, ALONG WITH MY OXYGEN BOTTLE THAT FEEDS PURE COOLED O2, VIA MY CERAMIC AIR STONE TO THE BAIT-COOLER.

IT FREE'S UP ABSOLUTE BALL-ROOM DANCING IN THE STERN. JUST WHAT IS NEEDED FOR WINTER FISHING. 

ESPECIALLY, FLOAT-RIG FISHING!!

THE WHOLE REASON I HAD THIS BOAT BUILT. 

MAJOR MOBILITY. NO CRAMPED FISHING!!

NO ONE WOULD EVER SIT ON THE 120 QT. COOLER I HAD BEHIND THE LEANING POST ANYHOW.  


HERE'S A VIDEO EXPLAING A FEW THINGS THAT I DID LAST YEAR ABOUT MAKING ''BALL ROOM DANCING SPACE, AND WHY DOESN'T ANYONE EVER DO A OIL ANALYSIS OF THEIR 4-STROKE OUTBOARD OIL??


YOUTUBE VIEWER-COMMENTOR & GOOD FRIEND, ''OROWOCK GARY'', IN LONG ISLAND ALWAYS TALKS ABOUT, THIS VIDEO.  

(I THINK HE LIKED MY FANCY FOOT WORK ๐Ÿ‘Œ)





THIS IS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT.....HAVING YOUR OWN BOAT BUILT THE WAY YOU WANT IT.

NO BUILDER TELLING YOU, VIA THIER DESIGN OF WHAT THEY THINK YOU WANT.
WELL, I DON'T LIKE MUCH OF ANYTHING I SEE BOAT BUILDERS DOING.

I HAD BUILT A ''CHARTER BOAT''. NOT A JOHN DOE BOAT, THAT IS THE SAME AS EVERY OTHER BOAT, BUT MADE TO DO ''CHARTER BOAT'' DUTIES.

''FLEXIBILITY'' IS THE KEY, FOR ME.

GAWD DANG HOW I LOVE THE ''PIG BBQ''

ON NORMANDY BLVD. JAX FL.




STAND UP FOR AMERICA

don't be like the Non-National football league













11/5 - WIND'S STILL HOWLING!!!!!!! Nov. will be a wash-out

https://www.captdaves.com - since 1996 


TRIED TO GO TO THE SOUTH-SIDE OF SOUTH JETTY YESTERDAY WITH A LONG-TIME CUSTOMER AND HIS SON.

RIGHT BEFORE THEY ARRIVED, THE NEAR BY FLAGS WENT FROM WAVING TO 100% STANDING AT ATTENTION IN THE E.N.E. 15+ KNOT WINDS.










ALL COINCIDING WITH ''SUN-UP''. LIKE A LIGHT SWITCH, IT STARTED TO REALLY BLOW.

WE WERE FISHING A RISING TIDE, AND I REALLY WANTED TO GET TO THE SOUTH-SIDE OF THE SOUTH ROCKS.....OR JUST ''PACK IT IN''.











WE PACKED IT IN, AND DECIDED TO TRY NEXT WEDNESDAY, VETERANS DAY, MIKE'S NEXT DAY OFF.










NOVEMBER WILL BE A TOTAL WASH OUT, I GUESS. 

-ELECTION MADNESS, CREATES 'INSECURITY' IN PEOPLE

-THE FIRST WEEK, JETTIES ARE DAMN NEAR UN-FISHABLE 

-I COUNT ON STABILITY, AND A GREAT ECONOMY


IT'S REALLY TOO BAD, BECAUSE NOVEMBER IS MY FAVORITE MONTH.

NO A/C RUNNING, WINDOWS OPEN, NO SWEATING, AND I GET TWICE THE AMOUNT DONE AROUND THE JETTYWOLF FISH CAMP BECAUSE IT'S JUST SO PLEASANT OUTSIDE, COMPARED TO THE MISERABLE SUMMER MONTHS, WHEN PEOPLE THINK FISHING IS GREAT (inshore), BUT ISN'T!


HERE'S THE MARINE FORECAST FOR THIS WEEK:

THURSDAY
Northeast winds 15 to 20 knots. Seas 4 to 6 feet with
a dominant period 8 seconds. Choppy on the intracoastal waters.
Chance of showers.


FRIDAY
Northeast winds 10 to 15 knots. Seas 4 to 6 feet. A
moderate chop on the intracoastal waters. Slight chance of
showers in the morning, then chance of showers and slight chance
of thunderstorms in the afternoon.


SATURDAY
East winds 15 to 20 knots. Seas 4 to 6 feet. Choppy
on the intracoastal waters. Chance of showers.


SUNDAY
East winds 15 to 20 knots. Seas 5 to 7 feet. Showers
likely and slight chance of thunderstorms.

TEASER VIDEO....RE-SHOWING MY RIG.

SEE VIDEO LINK BELOW TO SEE THE WHOLE HISTORY AND MAKING OF MY JETTYWOLF STRONG ARM RIG

Capt Dave's Sport Fishing

WINDS BLOWIN' ๐ŸŒŠ⚠๐ŸŒŠ⚠ so why not HELP YOU some, by re-hashing https://youtu.be/vI-K8TmJi9M

MY VERY OWN ''JETTYWOLF STRONG ARM RIG.

It stays tied to 1/2 the combos in my arsenal (I have a huge arsenal) it's always there, ready for a leader & hook. It's for Bottom fishing in current, in the St. Johns river. (even have used it offshore for snapper and more) VERSATILE! just adjust leader length/strength, and hook sizes.

✔✔OBJECTIVE; ''It keeps your 'leader' from tangling with your main line, for me 30# Hercules braid, when going up and down, bottom fishing.

YES, IT TAKES A COMMITMENT, TO MAKE THEM. Which the average guy won't do. But, on my boat with my customers (and myself) it works GREAT.
