Went out 8/20 with Mike Ellis, Relentless Fishing.
What a great day! We hit the water around 6, ran out and had to hunt for bait a little - but it didn't slow us down too badly. We hit the waves head on, and went south. His cat is an amazing ride, and the ultimate fishing machine! The seas finally started to lay down and we arrived at our destination.
2.5 hours later, we were headed in. We asked for 2 yellowfin per person, and Mike made it look so easy. We left with the fish still hammering the baits. Thanks again Mike - look forward to the next one!

What would the typical rates be to store a boat indoors?
I have some extra room and might set something up.
I'd just like a little input from the boating community for advice. This would be in Baton Rouge, would be in a secured, enclosed environment, and would have 24 hr access via phone.

Thanks in advance.

Very cool. My wife has been doing the same for a few years now. I have a large bull red print in my office. They make good gifts too!

I'd second Capt. Kevin Beach. Went out with him about 3 weeks ago and he put us on the tuna in no time. Great guy as well, we truly appreciated his company.

There seems to be a lack of clarity and agreement in these posts.
Bat 1 - keep all your accessories on this. They will only see 12v across the positive and negative.
Bat 2 - hook the negative to Bat 1 positive. Make or buy a jumper wire.
Hook your trolling motor to the negative on Bat 1 Negative (will share with your acc/big engine terminals) and hook the pos of the trolling motor to Bat 2 positive. It will not affect charging or operation of your accessories, they will still see 12V, the trolling motor will see 24. Your engine will only charge batt 1 while running though, so bat 2 will always need to be manually charged.
Do rest a sweaty arm on any of the terminals! 24V will tingle....But whose going to be sweating this weekend anyhow? Good luck!
