Hit the water @ 7am on Profish with long time buddy and captain John and trusty first mate & beer supply guy Chad. Tried a couple paddies early for nothin. We were trying to get bait or maybe some yt or dodo, ended up outside the nine where water was 71, it was 66 inside. 10 minutes of trolling got a decent 80lb male so we said good enough, meat for all aboard. As we were going in looking for paddies we saw a nice one about 10 miles west of pl. Threw chum bait and instant surface frenzy, we were not expecting that so the usual early season snafoos occurred including snagging the flag on the outrigger on an iron cast (captain John ), a knot coming undone due to a hasty tie ( by me). And we kept snagging Chad's sabiki rig which was still sitting around. We did have two nice hook ups on the YT , flylined dines, but lost them and couldn't get them to go again. In the end it was a nice day with good seas and sun by noon, we spent more time drinking at the dock than actually on the water...
