my boat partners are out there fishing at this time. i couldn't make the window due to having to actually work on thursday night and friday morning. i am planning on a trip for the following weekend weather permitting. they are going to try for tuna at the floaters and i hope they have a great trip and no problems....rick
my buddy Casey went out yesterday and absolutely annhilated them. 12 blackfin tuna (he said they lost about 15 to some really big sharks) limit of ajs, most of which were 50+ with one going 87, limit of snapper to 17 lbs, two ling, limits of kings to 20 lbs, and they lost a 45-50 lb wahoo at the boat. I, of course, was sitting in the office typing on this @#$^%$ computer!!
I feel your pain James. It really sucks! I hate watching the buoy slow dance at 1.0 feet on the weekdays and then watch it blow on the weekends. Thats why most of us get tagged "weekend warriors" by the coastal locals. They dont understand why it is easy to become "aggressive" and "agitated" while fighting the winds on the weekend. Looks like this front will be blowing in Saturday morning. Darn, I guess I will have to go duck hunting instead.
Heck I am a coatal local I am sitting in Matagorda at the plant watching everyone go by, trying to talk my partner into bailing out and making a run but no avail! Man I have only a couple of trips left this year and this would be great day for one!
