Hey all, yep, a noobie...
I've been boating outta boston harbor now for 15 years, but on a blowboat, doing the sailboat racing thing mostly... (ya... i know, i know...). I fished with my old man back in 'the day' and hooked piles of blues, but very never any stripers.
I picked up a 31' Tiara, hooked up with outriggers and tower, a livewell and a big insulated ice box.
I've really done nothing but get to know the boat (repowered it, installed a bunch of electronics, etc...) i now am pretty comfortable with the whole 30 knot running speed now (far cry from the 7 i'm used to), and brought down a few rods and some tackle for the first time last weekend. I threw a couple of umbrella rigs out there and hooked up within a few minutes with a schoolie bluefish...
I hope to rig the outriggers and try some more combinations this weekend...
lookin' forward to havin' some fun this fall!
Thanks guys, this website / forum looks great!!
