I’m back from my 12 day trip with the Wingmaster Sandpiper 120 road trip. The trip was from Tampa to Houma, Louisiana , then Venice, then Galveston Texas then Corpus Cristi Texas.
Driving there wasn’t too bad as it took 11 hours to get to Louisiana and I got to fish for a couple days. The hour drive to Galveston TX was fine as I got to stop and fish for a couple days. I then headed to Corpus another 4 hours and again I got to fish.
The drive back however was tiresome, besides bathroom breaks and gas stops there were not much resting. I finally had to get some sleep after about 10 hours of driving at a rest stop.
Overall it was a successful trip and look forward to doing it again in December.
Here is a couple of video clips I put together from all the media I collected that week. These clips are solo fishing from the Sandpiper with a Gopro mounted on the poling platform using the RailBlaza mounts.
I would cruise using the remote trolling motor and made short casts. The water was murky so seeing then from afar was not in the cards. As you can see I had some awesome eats on fly. These are just a couple.
This guy was feeding next to the bank. I power pole down and made two cast to get the eat.
Some one made a comment about hull slap on this video. As far as I know there has not been a skiff made that goes backward in 10-15mph winds and makes zero noise.
