Actually, it was better than that, except for the hot chick. Pete called last night with a last minute opportunity to go commercial hook and lining, since his charter for today washed out due to the threat of muddy water and possible weather.
Backhoe in the Bay. We had a very high tide, and lots of structure in the water, and water up into the grass on the salt marsh islands.
I would not be lying if I said we caught a shitload of fish. The count may be a little off but we think we caught and kept about 150 fish over 18 inches, the commercial size limit for Striped Bass. We caught them at numerous sites, 5-20 at a time. Bigger on average than last week, there were about 2 keepers for every throwback.
By the time we were headed back across the Bay, the wind was up to 15-20 N, and waves up to 4 ft in places. Pete was pretty careful on the way back and it was hardly even uncomfortable.
