I had been talking about taking my friend Mike out on my boat for years. Three boats later, today, I finally did. What a gorgeous day on the Sound. Once outside of Mamaroneck Harbor, the sailboat races were everywhere, with the helicopter in hot pursuit.

Well, the Jillybird IV hadn't yet been photographed by helicopter so I managed to attract the chopper's attention and got him to come over for a photo session. Now, I'll contact them and get the proofs emailed to me in about a week or two. If you've never done this before, they're not cheap, but they are usually spectacular, capturing your boat planing across the Sound. They're also great marketing photos when you're selling your boat.

After that mini-adventure, I wasted prodigious amounts of fuel running over to the Triangle just because I wanted to take Mike on a boat ride on such a beautiful day. The porgy fishing at the Triangle was actually terrible. I drifted near the fleet near the green can (Buoy 13) and the action was very slow and the porgies were tiny. This was near the top of the incoming.

Knowing the abuse that I would soon be getting from my son, Capt. Wylie, who's chartering in Miami, I told Mike we're going to one of Wylie's guaranteed hot spots off of Stamford. And off we went. As soon as we got there, we steadily slammed giant porgies as long as we stayed close to his rocks.

Then my wife called, and she wanted to go for a boat ride. So if was back to the dock, with a quick final stop at Scotch Caps for no fish. Mike was thrilled with the trip and hopefully will come back soon.
