    Left 10pm 03.24.2011 from Davies Locker aboard the Thunderbird.

    Crossing to San Clemente Island was rough, got sea sick around 4:30 am.

    Caught several 2 treefish,2 rosey rockfish, several other misc. rockfishand 3 sheepheads, one was too big to bounce,
    had to call for the gaff.

    Trip on the way back was a lot smoother, but would say it was calm. Just a side note, the front side of SCI, reminds me of Ireland in the overcast, just my observation.

    The T-bird is kind of an odd configured boat you have to climp up 2.5
    feet to get in to the galley. Thats not a lot of fun in rough water. That criticizes aside, the crew was super, they seem to magically show up right when there was a tangle, and there was a lot of them.

    Sorry I don't have more pictures, something got screwed up with my camera, too bad.
