Justanotherfisherman, the weed was not an issue. There was a little, but it did not affect the fishing. After about 45 minutes of a line being out, it slowly started to pull the lines. The waves were minimal and under tow stopped around 10am. One problem, the fish did not cooperate. Pleanty of whitting, one small Hammer head shard (18"). Did not see much bait in the water, shad or mullett. Good luck. I was using cut whitting, cut ballywho, and shrimp. I did manage two large Skipjacks on cut whitting. No reds or good size sharks.
