Here she is ... 75 gallons of pure offshore fishing nirvana! I would like to thank Randy Wood at Blue Water Bait Systems for suggesting and installing this beauty! He manufactures a variety of different custom bait tanks and the options seem endless. I met Randy at a boat show recently in Southern California. I described to him what I needed and the issues with the original bait tank. Randy was familiar with the layout of the boat and the existing system. His advice and feedback was right on the money! I called him the next day after the show to discuss further. He gave me his schedule and we set up a time. He came out to the boat and had everything installed within a day - no surprises. He's a busy guy but he delivered on everything he promised and his estimate was accurate - no wonder he is a busy guy!
At first I was a little concerned with the size. After seeing the tank laid out on the deck, I knew it was the correct choice. The deck on the Grady White Sailfish is much bigger than what it appears. There is more than enough room to maneuver around. The oval shape is attractive and the tank actually provides a nice logical flow to the movement around the deck. It is easily accessible by everyone fishing on the boat. From where I am sitting, this is a home run!
