Took the old man and my sister out to the islands today. Seas so flat we could have water skied the whole way down. Awesome.

Islands were dead. Hit Pukey (only seals), flats north of middle grounds (mackerel and cuda only), Middle Grounds ridge (nothin), Ribbon Kelp (nothin), Lighthouse (fat calico sitting right on the boiler rock), SKR (nothin), and just south of the pens in close for a few cuda. Ate lunch at Lobster Shack and poked out offshore to try and find a paddy. Basically an arid wasteland all the way to the 302/226 and back. Decided to see if there was an afternoon bite going so we came back to Middle Grounds and the old man promptly hooks up at bird shit rock on the bass gear in super shallow water. Awesome fight on the light tackle and he was stoked to get one. Next drift my sister hooks up and gets hers too, bigger than the old man's to boot. This was about 4 PM. He was so jazzed he even drove home and I got to sit shotgun and relax for once - score!

Dad was thrilled, 2/2 on yellows, sister filleted all the fish, my 4 year old unloaded the boat, wife had fresh hot homemade peanut butter cookies waiting in the driveway - life is good!

66 at north island in the morning
61 at south island
67 at middle grounds end of the day

I did see one fish caught at lighthouse in 61 water so go figure.
