    Headed out this morning with my good friend RT on his sturdy stead Boomzing, an 18ft glasspar converted to a center console like I have. We’ve shared many great adventures on the water throughout the years, and today would be no different.

    Launched in Mission Bay at 7:00. Turned the corner to head south to the Coronado’s and wasn’t too bad for a bit. But the wind was blowing from the south. We thought it would turn around and lay down. Boy were we wrong.

    Outside a bit it picked up with a 4ft short bump from the south with a good blow on it. The groundswell was from the west, and it seemed she was coming at us from all directions. Made 8 knots and got down there at 9:30. Einstein here forgot his slickers in my boat. I was wet all day as the sun never broke out.

    Long story short, we pounded heaps of sand all over the place. The current was ripping downhill and it was not optimal Bounceballing conditions. RT scratched up 1 red vermillion and a 11lb class flattie at 3:00. I flew a full stripe with nada. That’s how I got my nick name “Goose”many years ago fishing cod with RT and Woody, it stands for goose egg.

    Called it a day at 4:30. The ride home was downhill for a change and not too bad but steep in the trough at times. Made it back by 6:00. It may have laid down a little bit.

    I’m not sure if we’re getting any smarter these days, but we didn’t sink, gave it hell, and had a great time together out there today. Sometimes we would just stop the boat and watch all the dynamics in play in awe of mother ocean.

    I wouldn’t recommend it tomorrow unless it lays down more, you’re experienced, and have a glasspar. LOL

    Gonna drop now.

    Tight Lines,

    Rick

    Rick,

    Glad to see you at least enjoyed the day. Thats always key, and catching fish is definitely a plus. Cant wait to get out there and pound the sand. Looking for that first legal hali this year, and I think your system is going to get me and the wife that elusive hali.
