    What a way to start the month!
    My buddy calls "over slept" from Temecula at 4:51am...... ok let's just go and see what happens. I mean heck I went to bed at 12:30am & woke up at 3am to finally go try an early shot at the other red meat!
    Good solid mix of big deans/mini macs and head to the 181 to get to a close shot outta Oside
    63-65* water cobalt blue & gorgeous viz when we hit the high spot at 8:36am
    By 10 am no signs of movement or the right sign
    But we find a small patch of lettuce & marks at 60' & soak some strong swimmers
    Why is the bilge pump still pumping??
    Open hatch, open mouth "oh crap! That's some water there" looks like seal issue between outdrive & transome
    Not a temp fix & fish away but a "hey Jon lets troll back to the barn & quick!"
    More water, bilge not keeping up, not gonna troll, gonna gun it.
    And stall
    And call, "vessel assist this is Skipjack 24 taking on water" we are under power (about 6kts) but slow
    After giving #'s to the CG the War Ship 52 says they have a visual on us & will redirect their live fire "excercises" & lend a hand.
    CG says they are 30 min out & to dawn life jackets
    War Ship 52 says they are 3NM away and will come port to port turn rudder and swing around us to starboard drop a small craft & bring assistance
    USCG says "we have the vessel in sight and will handle the situation"
    USN politely responds "we are lowering a small boat & will lend a hand if needed"
    Now the Navy maneuver is causing a crisscrossing of back wash making the skippy tippy & the formal pissing contest over little old me seem more serious than before we called for help
    Finally the navy stands down but leaves the small craft standing by just in case
    The CG board and crank up a pump that would dump a swimming pool in minutes
    They shadow us back to Oside ( talked em into NOT goin to closest port) & got written up for the flares & Flare gun being couple months outta date as well as the extinguishers too low

    Good early season lessons
    Especially for me to double/triple ck things and not get so excited to fish and remember "The ocean doesn't even know you're there"
    Thanks for being there boys (and girls) of the sea, protecting & serving even the little guys

    Fish report
    Trolled some porpoise for nada
    Radio chatter by 11am was sightings but nothing hung
    Hope somebody got something, if not today
    Thankfully there's tomorrow!!

    Glad all was good in the end. Thanks for reporting. It will give the rest of us some extra incentive to give our safety gear the twice over.

    Wow! It isn't every day you get two branches of the armed forces duking it out to save your butt! Surprised sea tow wasn't in the mix too!

    Go Navy!
    Go Guard!

    That sucks man, sorry to hear that. Happy that everything worked out! Got to thank our boys for (potentially) saving your ass...

    As a Skipjack owner myself, I really would like to know what failed... what type of outdrive?

    The CG wrote you up for expired or faulty safety equipment?

    I've always thought that if I had time, I'm stealing my buddies life vest and tying my rods and reels to it.

    Good reason to add a couple 1500gph pumps in my skip while the engine will be out. Sorry it happened, but glad your back home safely!

    There's always a few days in your life when you don't mind paying taxes. Nice having those fellas on the job. Glad you got back OK.

    Glad you are ok. Listened to this unfold while down at the 425 but could only hear the coast guard side of the conversation. What outdrive do you have and did you ever figure out exactly where you were taking on water?
