My new wife as of 7/9 and I Started yesterday at o dark thirty and grabbed some bait and took off. Saw lots of life around the 14 and started trolling around. Water looked like shit so started trolling south. Didn’t see anything until we got all the way to the 209 which was two different nice kelp patty’s holding nada. Weather picked up fast and got bad so spent the next 4 hours going 4 mph trying to get to Catalina. Let me tell you I made I stupid decision going out that far in a 15ft center console. If you seen us yah that was my dumb ass. Anyways made it to Catalina and ducked out of the weather and was deciding on if we were gonna stay and realized I left my wallet in the truck so no money. Great right. Well after an hour weather died down a little and I ventured out to see what it looked like and a really nice marlin boat came by and was cutting through the weather nicely so I said fuck it and hoped in behind him and followed him all the way back to new port. Guy lost me in the boat traffic in the harbor but if he’s on here and reads this, man thank you. So a long day. Got my wife hooked up on a little fish at Catalina and put a smile on her face but my ignorance was down right stupid. My buddy’s boat I used handled great but never should of got caught out there like that.
