Was it a holiday weekend? Unbelievably like summer. All the Newbs were out. Embarcadero parking lot was not full, however the dock was. Folks waiting on folks to show up and not budging. Outside the harbor, every huge yacht were making their loops/circles for their guests. Just . . . Covid Crowded.

Uneventful day on the water. Lots of bait, a few puppy Dolphin. Water was green, 58 degrees, light current and almost no wind. Fishing was slow. Got a dozen mixed bass, 4 keepers. Kept one, below.

Saw some bait marks and pulled up a couple of these huge Smelt which Bolan tasted.

Bolan is focused in on what’s going on. I think she’s starting to get it.

Super glassy day. Went wide open and think I am underpowered, at least for glass. Otherwise, 25 mph all day long: which is usually above average conditions. Hate the idea of not being able to cruise at 35 if conditions allow.

Here is our guest tonight.


And since this report is “lack luster”. I thought I’d share a GIF of my girlfriend. :D

Didn't say 25 is wide open, it's cruising speed. If I need any help i will go to the boating forum, thanks Hismosa.

If you have a 115, that is the same as my OB. With all the hours on mine, it will push me to 30 knots on glass, unloaded. I would expect that yours would be about the same. You start adding in full 30 gallon bait tank, lobster/fishing/camping gear and it slows down a bit.

Max HP - for my boat anyway - is 135, which may get you that extra 5 knots - but is it really worth the expense to repower and extra gas it's going to cost you?

PS - when did you start dating my ex? :D

Your X said hello Mike. :D

Good advise on the gas. My boat motor can range from 90-150 hp. My top end is around 33mph at 5500. 25mph at 4300. I figured I was going to repower when I bought the boat. I may wait till she blows up first. Arima forum may be the best place to get feedback when that time comes to repower.

37 miles to the closest point to Cat from DP = 1.5 hour drive, minimum.

Did you mean the water was 58 not 68?

I didn’t know Ozzie Osborne was a bass fisherman
Hey, at least you didn't call him "Kinison" :D

This thread is a perfect example of how to take an average day and turn it into an entertaining post by adding a little T & A and a bit of humor!

Well played, sir!

I made the run to Cat and got nada for my efforts. My buddy Frank managed to get 1 calico and land a lost Bonita. Thanks for the GIF of your girlfriend, it helped improve my day!
