Good morning. It's morning time for me. 1:53 am. I'm writing about yesterday. I'd call it good fishing. Nothing crazy, just steady scratch fishing for most of the day. Same old grade, 14-22 pounders. Same basic grounds. It was a lot more fun than that sounds though. Come on, good fishing on a good grade of fish. What more could we ask for? Better weather? OK. But sometimes you get wind. When life gives you lemons... Seriously though, we had a whole lot of wind today. Here's the thing though. The boat drifted great. We may have had over 20 knots of wind, but the boat drifted like we had 10. A little wind burn and some chapped lips is all. As long as the fish bite and no one gets hurt.
Good fishing or not, we decided to take a break from that wind this afternoon. We made a little move where the wind gets blocked by The Island. What a difference. I compared it to sitting in a spa. Just that, aaahhhhhhhhh feeling. We even caught some fish. There were some spots of YT's up and at dark we caught 4 grouper, a halibut and a tail on a drift. Then we anchored up for Seabass and had dinner. We haven't caught a Seabass yet but we're hoping at or just before daylight we get some. One boat had some around these parts yesterday.
So that's it. We'll be here again tomorrow. 20 minutes left on my watch and I'll be going back to bed for a few more hours. Stay classy everyone and thanks for stopping by.
