  • NJMako Destin Bound 2010

    The truck is packed, the boat is mostly back togeather, a few pieces of teak still to put back on. I had planned on getting on the road very early this morning, but I am already running hours late, so will get a good sleep and off in mid morning to Destin, should arrive in Destin Wednesday at Bayside. BTW- a conversation topic when not talking mako's and fishing, the truck runs on Veggie Oil there is 45 gallons in the tank, and 30 in jugs, plus 30 gallons of diesel. Leaving in an hour...

              Our pictures from a great trip!!

              Dinner Saturday Night!! Lisa and I...



              The grill, simply amazing!!



              The fishing, Lisa had 4 keeper Red Snapper, I had 2 keeper Red Snapper and 2 throw back, Lisa had a black grouper (I think that is what it is in the picture) and a really small grouper.





              I assume this is a black grouper? It was tossed back for being smaller then 22"





              Pictures of the area...











              We look forward to seeing everyone next year!!!

                Great meeting you and your wife. Hope to see you guys next year !!

                That is a Gag Grouper. Probably the most plentiful in the Gulf Coast area. Great eating, but you were right in returning it as it was too small. Good size snapper. Looks like lots of fun. [8D][8D]

                    Justin it was great meeting you and Lisa, and I am glad you got out and caught some good fish. I looked for you on Saturday, hoping to introduce you to Beth and the boys - I guess we both have to return next year []. I am also glad to hear that long trip was uneventful.

                            Sailor, sorry we missed you in Destin, but next year we can connect. I use a product from Dino Fuel Alternative called "VegiStroke" version 3, I have been running it for 2 years with no issues. Below is the website. Are you running something?

                              Justin - never did get the diesel truck b/c I got laid off, but was collecting, filtering and settling oil for eight months. Figured that was the hardest part about the whole gig and if I didn't get tired of collecting, then it would have been something I would have done. I gave almost 200 gallons to a buddy and could have definitely gotten your tank filled for you. I was planning on building something similar to the frybrid system. I still keep an eye on the 7.3 powerstroke market and hope to get back into the game once things turn around.
