FINALLY got out on the new boat for the shakedown trip. Didn't plan on going this weekend due to the NOAA wave forecast modeling blah blah blah.

So, we worked on the boat tweaking a few things on Friday, and looked at the webcams first thing on Saturday - nearly flat at the pier.

Tried to call a bunch of people, but everyone was already busy.

Luckily I needed a license, so I stopped in the local shop and of course we started talking fishing and how badly we wanted to go but needed a third.

TADA, Bob DeVris was at the shop and said "I'll go". That was all we needed and we started getting set. THANKS BOB. Could not have gone without out.

We went straight west and dropped in about 130. Fished out to 175 and back to 130 when we pulled lines.

What worked:

dipsey on 2 back 275-300 with 11" white paddle and green/yellow flies

dispey on 2 back 275-300 with mt dew spinny and yellow fly.

downrigger parked at 100 with rays rasberry dolphin

300 went once with a freakn blue veggie (I think).

That was about it. Nothing up high worked.

We ended up with 11 for a few missed on rigger sets.

It was an awesome shakedown trip. I think this boat will fish just fine and it was a much nicer ride on the rough water.
