Nice day today
« on: November 07, 2017, 08:42:04 PM »
Short report.

Got out this morning and fished until we got blown off the water. We decided to drift for Halibut. The last time we went out, we had several short bites and my buddy Randy caught one. We went back today to the same spot we left the Fish last time. Right off the bat Randy got Bit by something really big that spooled him before I even had a chance to start the boat to give chase. He burned his thumb trying to stop him. We caught an uncounted number of bonito. Couldn’t keep them off the hook as we dropped to the bottom. All released. I caught one keeper Halibut. The DFW warden was waiting at the ramp to check our licenses and catch.

I did about half a dozen halibut trips in the spring and the bay was littered with shorts. As soon I dropped in I’d have a short. Probably be good in a few years though!  :food:

Before the (3 mile) gill net ban, we were only getting shorts.

We prefer to think it was a big BSB. (We would have had to release it anyway.).  :jester: 

Randy caught one in the same area last week.

Oh My ....Shawn... I can’t believe you are saying that. I am always so positive and helpful. You may be suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) The colorful sunny photos that I post for you are intended to cheer you up. Apparently it’s not working. Do you have any of these symptoms?....

Grouchy ?
Fatigue ?
Sleeping too much ?
Difficulty concentrating ?
Weight gain ?

Maybe if I speak to your wife, she will let you buy one of those Parkers to cheer you up?  :shrug9:

You could probably get this one for less than $30,000 ??

There is that one day out of the year, today, when the weather doesn't cooperate and it's cloudy windy and chilly and you think about putting a sweater on :jester:

Our weather has been spotty but is about to get worse- there’s a stream of storms from the Gulf of Alaska down to So Cal- looks like we all get to party!
