We were number running again, with our adventurous group.
First stop was a broken up metal wreck with some life (Sea Bass and Bugs)
not enough to keep us entertained for 2 though. This first stop will need some additional attention when Tog opens, there were some real monsters awaiting the dinner table. Next stop was a location we had not visited before and we were not disappointed. Bottom temps are still holding cold, today 52*-54* was the consensus and viz was good in the 15' to 20' range. 9 on board 27 Sea Bass and a bunch of bugs.
Full boat of regulars, Sea Bass and Bugs would be the theme.
Fist stop another new one for us and it held some life but again on the smaller side and a move to another site was in order. Second site was one of our regular haunts and it did not disappoint. We would again limit out on Sea bass and some bugs to round things out. Mr Noble would also grab a nice Monk for his grill...........hopefully next time he will clean it....what a mess these things are. Again 15' to 20' viz and bottom temps in the low to mid 50's*.
Pics to follow soon
Weather was scheduled to pick up later in the day, so sticking close was the theme today. Brunette was the choice.........Day started out to be not so bad, but building the whole time. We did get our 2 in but it was a little snotty by the time we bailed.
What was really surprising was the 4* temp drop from the day before.....almost everyone had 48* on the bottom at 75'.......I can't believe we are still running into 40 degree water in the middle of July. Viz took a turn for the worse as well at maybe 5' to 10' depending on who you asked. One of our big game hunters returned from a short absence and got 2 very nice bugs and a 20 something inch Fluke. A couple Sea Bass thrown in to round out the day.........we did get it in so that was cool.
I'll have pics up soon.
