Friday the 13th turned out to be a great night for me but not so much for the bugs. I got a birthday hall pass from the wife. Looking at the weather, Friday was the last night to get out before the winds. Four of us left Long Beach around 1. We baited up and started dropping hoops around 3. It seemed like we had the whole Island to ourselves. Not another boat in site. First pulls started at 5:30 and we were finished with limits by 8. We probably caught 200 shorts, 35 keepers, 2 sting rays and 1 horn shark. I pulled my best total net ever which had 21 bugs (4 legals). I have been out twice this year, both on full moons and got limits both times. Go figure.
