    Fished today with Simon (Bon Bowery). We dropped the old glasspar in at 8:00 and headed south to see if we could scratch up a flattie bounceballing.

    Simon, Otto and I have spent a few hours together with the MLPA stuff, but never had the pleasure to share a day on the water together.

    So I briefly showed Simon the ropes for bounceballing and he picked it up quickly. We pounded sand and got a decent biter around 10:30 on the blue UV dredge. Simon did a fine job bringing her up, but after a brief glimpse of color, the hook pulled. Nothing huge, but probably 24 inches or so.

    We kept pounding sand. It was a perfect February day on the water; warm, sunny and flat. Made a move around 2:00 to try a few more areas since the tide swing was over. Simon's rod went off on the dodger rig and she was peeling drag........and kept going. Not a flattie but maybe a yellow or white sea bass we hoped.

    Chased her down for a bit and finally saw color. It was a juvey T-shark maybe 60lbs or so, that managed to get hornswaggled in the spectra really good. After a bit of de-tangling and reviving, she swam off like a champ. Simon's first Tshark.

    Saw a whale and plenty of porpoise too.

    Otto.........dude........it would have been way too sweet to watch you catch that fish my man......... we'll get out together someday soon with you and your Pops so no worries mate!!!

    Hit a few more spots for no joy. But it was a most excellent February day on the water. It's all good.

    Tight Lines,

    Dean, here's how that part of the "revival" conversation went:

    Me: OK, she's finally untangled. If you hold the fish Simon, I'll take a pic"
    Simon: "She's not moving, might have to take her after all"

    Fishbones, Simon brought a bucket of KFC for lunch, it was good!

    Simon, that sunscreen can't be bad, it's only been on the boat for 10 years.......sorry to hear you got fried. We had fun doing it though!!!!!

    Tommy, not sure when you were at the ramp, but let's just say it was in full summer form when we pulled out :zelfmoord:zelfmoord

    Tight Lines,
