FT came over to fish with me this weekend and brought the mojo with him.

Sat we went out on guided trip my wife had bought for me when I got back from Kuwait last year. Didn't get to use until this year due to my oldest's cancer treatment. So one year later, we got out on the eastern bay in search of breaking fish. Searching was the opperative word for a large portion of the morning but a couple of phone calls later we were playing with dink rockfish on a shallow shelf bordering deep water. We finally got into breakers around 1300 and had 45 minutes of intense action. FT was a fish catching machine and sore lipped many rockfish.

Sunday we headed out in my boat and imediately wished for the guides larger boat. 18 vs 23 doesn't compare when you're beating into a head sea. After making sure FT's fillings didn't need replacement, we found a willing school of bluefish between the 301/50 bay bridge spans. We played with them for 2 - 3 hours before the weather drove us in.

All in all, it was a good urn.
