Took a trip down in Mexican waters on Wed. Another 140+ mile trip. Buddy took these pics. He's a bit more with it when it comes to the camera and taking pictures. Only caught 7 tuna all on the troll but did better than pretty much 90% of the boats out there. Better to be lucky than good! It looks pretty calm but we actually took spray all day long.

Fred from up in Michigan sent us these photos of him and his son running the Big Manistee River.
Beautiful country up that way! Family trips, we’re all about that!

Great photo and story about this research couple and how their Wooldridge Boat helps them get the job done. Interesting read!

From WB customer and friend James B. "10 days of hard hunting off the Tanana River and finally found something to fill the freezer, boat performed awesome. I’m heading back out for three more days. Hopefully be running light in and heavy out! Would recommend this vessel to anyone who spends there time on rivers!" 2013 XL 20’ SportJet 200 Optimax.

“Last run to our cabin off the Nenana River, in interior Alaska. Mother Nature had been playing nice up until this morning! Man I love my Alaskan! Hate to put her away for the winter! Until next year!” Ryan

We love sharing photos from Wooldridge boat owners! We got these from Andy W. “Gotta love the last few runs of the season!” Looks like fun Andy!

Last Wed. went 187 miles and 17 hours on the motor. Haven't filled the boat back up so not sure just how much fuel we actually burned but gauge said 52 gallons. We put in 10 gallons while off of Ensenada. I think we still had another 15+ gallons left in the tank. Not bad getting 3.6 mpg since we got beat up going uphill for about 50 miles. Longest trip to date. Don't think I want to do one of these trips anytime soon.

Top picture was early in the morning. It was pretty nice. Wish I could say so about the fishing. Porpoise but no fish. We did catch skipjack but who takes pics of those??

Middle picture was taken at the Middle Island of the Coronado's. It was just before sunset and we pretty much had to run right into the wind and bump for another 20 miles in the dark to get home. We caught 8 bonita trolling hootchie daisy chains (2) in about 30-40 minutes. All going uphill. Didn't get
one fish the other direction. No pictures of those either. Some of them were pretty big.

Last picture was taken well offshore down around Ensenada. Little illegal just landed on the boat then flew into the cabin. Stayed with us for a bit then flew off. Same thing happened last year when a falcon was chasing a bird and it landed on the boat and stayed with us for a while.
