Made it back to GB for some early am bottom fishing and crabbing NOOA said 3 ft seas 6 ft wind waves and didn't believe it thought it would be a lot nicer boy was I wrong. Dropped off the pots 1/4 mile north in 35ft to a "excited ocean" and headed out 2 1/2 miles to the "garden" were Whip goes and started to hear a voice that said "don't do it". A insane fast drift wind aided (sounds familiar) and lost gear on each drift did me in ,Say good by to breakfast. Lost 2 large lings and got my blacks just couldn't take it , wind waves got at least to 8ft .made it back to the pots to a lot of crabs but only 6 legal males after a 1 1/2 soak.
Fish the bay to big crowds and 0 for me but lots of fish caught.
Fished late friday at high tide , ramp empty everyone fishing past 101 bridge. at least 100+ boats and maybe 20+ guide boats some I've never seen.
Had 4 take downs and lost 1 at the net. Ran out of anchovies and went to a Brads plug cut in silver and blue dots with a anchovy tail in it .
17 lb took it at Indian creek in 10 mins after I put it on. When the dredge leaves will be nice with a lot of room and a deep channel.
Good luck to all and God Bless

I know what you mean! Give me a call next time you are headed down there if you need a deck hand!
I think I should be your deck hand. My recent runs have been pretty disappointing. Time to teach a old dog some new tricks plus your boat is bigger.
