    Seriously, the X just posted this on their Facebook page a few minutes ago...OMG!

    "Weather is pretty bad here on the Bank!.... This is on the anchor!"

    So, I'm looking at this pic and wondering how one would deal with a hung cow which wants to circle up under the bow...

    WICKED!

    From my experience with similar conditions last year you end up pulling the hook. Twice. :(

    Oh oh....just spoke to my friend Miles on the Intrepid...they left the Buffer zone and all the sharks behind and should be at the bank in the morning. Hope the weather settles down.

    hope this does not indicate the weather will be up for the early part of the long range season like last year. it was brutal in jan last year. but it was fishable if you were serious about it. gooooooooing

    You can land big fish in this weather if you rethink your approach. Longer topshot, little less drag and staying at the rail all pays off.

    I had 3 cows in the same weather conditions last January on the Excel. It can be done just have to be a little less aggressive.

    Gad... Victory at Sea. Warm and cozy it is not. Someone has to have bad weather trips, glad it's not me.

    I especially like that 2nd picture. That stern is UP! Props no doubt out of the water.
    What goes up must come down. Keep it in high?
