GSB ~ B-Laborday WEAKend ~ Calamity Trip~ 9-4-11

GSB ~ B-Laborday WEAKend ~ Calamity Trip~ 9-4-11


Late report....


to the ramp @ 5:30 sharp again x4....wind a little hard again from the S-SW for the am again ..Tough rough ride --... knew the ride back would be brutal again ~~ forcast for heavy wind SW x3..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
9:52? low
sunrise 6:23am
Wind ~ W-SW 10-12+ right away...never let up increased to S-SW @ 20 - gust to 25
Air 81
Water 73 -76
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wanted to get back to weaks again... but I knew it would be rough this AM..half contemplated scratchin the trip and hitting the N-SHore..Maybe I should have:

One of those days were multiple thig just went wrong ...

List of calamity:
- Forgot the tie downs were on and tried to sink the boat @ the ramp..
- so rough the last few trips -- 2 plastic clamp-on rod holder had enough and broke a big air jump land @ the same time.
- Bow Rail also Broke...
- and Windshield has a crack...Did I mention it's been Rough this August? ( a few weaks ago I had the Transducer bracket snap off in rough seas....)
- Get the spot -- 1st drift-- go to restart...BEEEP??///- steering locked up?,,,,( felt a little panic = brand new motor)--steering broke? - nope a dock line got wrap around the prop...perfectly coiled...cut it loose and it un wrapped easily....started right up no damage. "scariest moment of the day Award"
- Hooked into a sand shark and as I was about to pull the hook from it's mouth his tail whips around and shoots the plies right out my hand into the deep..
- not even 2 fish in and I developed a Blood blister as of a result of over fishin the last 4-5 trips and wearing a hole in my spinning hook set hand...had to use conventional all day...
- GPS was acting crazy all day...NO signal?,,,,then it would come back.. noticed one of thwire missing a cap..nice.

1st drop had a nice fish on but lost it...
had to do much searching...Tryed many,many different drifts...
Finnaly landed a little weak @ 7:41am = a successful trip...
broke the ice...now to find a keeper...
very slow pick....but a superb mixed bag....a few time I though I had a keeper( the shark made me thing I had a really nice fish)..one was a nice fighting 14.5" Kingfish...(went on ice)...now I really needed a Keeper .. because if I am cleaning one I might as well get another..

took a few hours and 19 shorts...but near noon I had 16 and a nice 17.5" ( which went in the box.) -- good thing because noon was it for me had to get to my own B-day party by 3pm...

- Had put in some good Karma before I left since it turned out to be an OK bite....Towed a kayak with my same Malibu Mini X that had drifted way of course == put him right on the spot..
REALLY Really Really Rough ride back again.. drove slower 18mph on the way back .. Riding 2-3' with some 4-5' chop and consistant sloppy 2'+....

Stuck it out for good day (despite all of the early mishaps) and very Mixed bag.

Total:______________________________________________
21 Weaks:
-2 keeper sized Weaks( 16",17") kept the 17"
-19 Short Weaks.. ( 10-15") most 12-13"
3 Kingfish ( 10", 11" , 14.5") kept the larger
3 Fluke ( 10-14")
3 Black Sea Bass ( all around 11")
3 Lizard fish ( 1 large one)
1 Sand Shark ( 24")
Only 10++ Snappers. --- ___________________________________________________________


Happy Labor day -- I should be on land until next weekend..my body aches from all the slaming of fish+waves this month..
