Went out Sunday with a friend from work and my brother on his boat for some fishin/hoopin. The fishing was pretty slow, short calico and a few micro sculps, so we should call the fishing part "making bait" as we ended up filling the tank with a bunch of macs. We ended up releasing the macs at the end of the night because I brought enough bonita for the hoops.

Soooo anyhow, we started the night at a spot that the lifegaurd boat crew suggested and lost 1 1/2 hours there for no bugs and 1 yellow rock crab,and about 2 dozen starfish. Then we headed to our spot from last trip and tried in the general area in varrious depths for 2 more yellow crabs and 0 bugs...not even shorts....0! Got the boat on the trailer at 1am, dropped it off at storage, dropped off some gear, dropped of friend, in bed by 515am, at work at 7am!! All for 3 crabs! Sucked but it was still fishing.

Wondering if the glassy smooth water out there was a factor for the no action had report...sure made the time on the boat relaxing but damn it sucked!

O well, hoop trip #2 in the books and at least I can now say "I got crabs" and be happy about it! Later

P.S.--sdfishkiller, thanks for the info once again on the big gay light sticks! Those things work great and you can see them from waaaaay off!!

Yeah, my buddy from work wants to go again but he's already suggesting a Sat instead a Sun trip! It is a pain in the ass but thats how our schedules all worked out so what can you do? We'll see how the next run goes?
