It was my extreme pleasure to have Gary K, Tom M, and Ralph S, fish with me today. The action was not overwhelming but steady. We took 16 eyes a nice cat and 2 perch. We threw back probably 10 smaller eyes. We no doubt could have limited but one of the guys had to be in at a certain time. Tom wanted the cat and has fond memories of his Big M. River days. We fished 25-27 FOW on the Inner Bay. Hot color was copper. Our first fish in the box came about 1 minute after setting the first down rod with a 3 oz bouncer with a copper blade harness. It's always a good sign to take the first one with only two lines in. 1.5 MPH going with and against the big waves. I think we did better going against the waves. It must be me cutting against the grain again that did the trick.:) I stayed on the helm after the initial set up but Tom and Ralph did a fine job at the helm also. Everyone was a huge help on the back of the boat. I love every minute I can spend on the water with true friends. I have met some darn nice people from this site and hope to meet more. No fish for me today. The only thing I have to clean is the cooler.:lol: What a fishery we have in our back yards. We are all truly blessed living in the GLs region.

Frank I slowed my boat to 1.5 mph in 4 foot seas and my raymarine sport pilot 5r could only keeps its course with the waves. I didnt put a bag in the water. That probably would have helped. I told you I would try it so I am giving you my report on it. The wind does catch my hard top. Now at a 2.5.troll it will keep its line in 8 foot seas all directions.

Keep catching those fish Frank.

Thanks for taking me along Frank, enjoyed the day as always, and glad to have met a couple fellow fisherman that I never met before:D Great time as always.

Ralph, You are always welcome aboard. It was nice to have 3 capable people with me. It makes for an easy enjoyable trip.
