    Thanks for the report. Thinking about hitting up the pile on Friday. Did u guys meter any fish or see any hooked? Reports seemed pretty bleak. Also what time did u guys get out there? Thanks for any info, and good on you for realizing your mistake and not telling him to fuck off when he was cordial to you... Little things bring good Karma. Whenever I do well I remember some little nice thing I did recently and always link them together. Karma or not it makes me feel good :)

    Just be glad it wasn't the Legend. Trowbridge wouldn't have been so "understanding"

    Hey nice try! If the kids had a good time, then I'd call it a successful day! Also it does not sound like you were "That guy" because you realised what was going on and handled it. No one is perfect out there

    Good luck for next trip

    Refreshing to read a humbling report. Thanks for sharing the "lesson learned" with the rest of us.
    BTW, Ginger was the hottie! They don't make women like that anymore.

    Arrived at middle grounds for first drift around 0600. Metered fish briefly a couple of times throughout the day. A PBer caught one yellow just outside lighthouse on South Island around 0800, otherwise didn't see or hear of anyone hooked up, and that includes my unusually good vantage point of the San Diego during the mid-morning at the Rockpile. I also trolled Rapala's 270 degrees around South Island, didn't meter anything. Can't tell you temps, as mine not working. Even though it was windy with whitecaps, water was as clear as a hot tub in my prop wash. Good luck to everyone.

    I was on the Pride and the yellows bit from 530am to maybe 7am. Nothing after that. Good try and your kids are awesome for sticking it out!!!

    At some point in every fisherman's life, he'll look up from what he's doing and realize that he's being that guy. I've been there myself...

    Sounds like you did pretty well for having all the kids onboard. "That guy" would have smiled and waved at the sporty completely oblivious to the screw up. Then he would have come on BD and complained that the sporty captain was less than friendly to him. Lol

    Questin. Did you not have enough scope out or was the anchor not holding even with plenty of line out? How deep was it and how much anchor line did you put out?

    Hi prater,

    You can bet skipper saw you were a straightup boater/angler with your positioning and behavior from the get-go !! Isn't it amazing the good press the skipper and boat can get from his behavior and your reporting it to the community at large. We get lots of bad press and rants on both PBer and sporties behavior alike (guilty as charged) but so few in the positive. Gotta hit that boat sometime.

    Thanks,

    tsurikichi

    Anchoring at the Middle grounds can get iffy, if you've ever seen the bottom, especially on that ridge, so many tiny nooks that you anchor can get stuck in and also the angle on the ridges can make you think you're hooked in, but will pop right off..Min 20' of chain..min...and lots of scope especially in a bad ass current or as windy as it was on Wed.. Atleast you had a good time with the kiddos, as long as they felt better after the hack attacks.. Wed had some narly winds for sure.
