Hi Regulars,

Would be interesting to know what boats you are fishing from and where you venture.

What are thornbacks? I wonder if they're the same thing we in the US call spiney dogfish. Are they small sharks with the claw on their dorsal fin?

I fish a Saturn 14 ft with a 25 hp 2 stroke on the upper Chesapeake Bay (East Coast, US). The area's called the Susquehanna Flats because it's where the Susquehanna River (which runs from New York State to Maryland) empties into the bay. Stripers, catfish, white and yellow perch can all be had here. And if you go down the bay you can get blue crab.

I used to take my old boat for fishing, Quicksilver 430hd w/wood floor and 15hp. Now I have Quicksilver 330 with airfloor and will take it out fishing for the 1st time this weekend.
I'll see how it does.
I usualy go to lake Simcoe, Ontario, Canada. We usually catch bass, perch and crappy. It is a well known place for Whitefish and Pike as well.

My friend and I had a nice trip in the no so nice weather. Some periodical rain, some gusty South wind - warm, a lot of small waives. It was my first time out on the boat in such conditions. It was also my fist time out on this boat.
The most noticeable things were: too fast to get up and running and cozy on the space... it is compare 4.30 QS with wood floor. The space difference feels like you've been moved from a house to a new condo apartment (a flat - for you UK folks). The engine started on the 3-4 pull and perform rather well. It was evening time and we are out fishing and not boat riding, so the balancing of items inside of it or particular accommodation of a passenger was not in the question. We had 4 hours before sunset and we needed to get to the "place" as soon as possible. As soon as we've gotten to the point, I realized that my tackle box was left in the car, so the return trip to the shore was needed. The turn around was rather faster than originally estimated, however with the waived present on the lake the top speed or maneuverability and other performance oriented maneuvers I'm going to leave for the next time out.
The fish was in abundance and the fish finder went mad with "fish alarm"...fish was rather smaller perch, crappy and sunfish. At one point of time my buddy started jigging and we had a rather lucky break when he cought a pike! It was kind of unusual for the pike to bite a jig...Pike or Musky are rather trophy kind of fish, where it can be considered among fishermen, where the one who's ever cought a pike has lost their fishing virginity. I've never fished out the pike in my life yet....At the end I ended up keeping the pike as my friend decided it was OK, as I had my new boat out and he liked it better than my previous one....I've enclosed couple of pictures made with my Blackberry, as usual the digicam was left at home as we thought there will be no purpose for it, boy we're wrong.
