    well we got the boat prepped on saturday and headed out the grounds on sunday, I pinged Dr Fongs location to get in the right area and found the fleet. we got some top secret digits from a close friend and moved to finish off our hali. we were short on lings but had a great day.

    How'd that Shimano jig work?

    I got to enjoy the boat ride back, sitting on a bean bag the whole way in my buddy's new NR, Tuesday. The bar didn't seem an issue to me Apparently it's a little different to the guy at the helm!

    We crossed tuesday at about 2:30 and it was sporty, but nothing that was scary. and I cruised to the barn from 41 miles out at 30 mph. I thought the tuesday conditions were sweet!!
    The ocean was definitely sweet, I think I just crossed way too far north, in fact I planned on going further south before turning in but saw a commercial fishing boat and figured he knew what he was doing. As it turned out it looked like he was way under powered as I ended up passing him.

    We came in around 3 pm. Definately didn't want to be on a small boat we had her nose birdied into every way but not under the water. Passed every small boat that Passed us on the way in. It was squirrelly all the way across. Just saying. Plus that's after testing the line cutters on a submerged commie pot. They work well

    Looking good Vance. Hope to be hitting Westport next year after I learn a little about where to go. La Push is getting to crowded and the big butt needs a slip, sitting in line for hours sucks...great report, and tight lines man!!
