Debra and I went to the Giants game Friday night and enjoyed a come from behind win against Clevelandian Indians. Sammitches and Dead Guy Ales at Tommys Joint. Spent the night on the boat with Randy and Thelma. Chilly B, Lonny, Henny and Dangerous Trebles rolled in at 8:00 AM and we were off.
The bait man told us a new school had arrived and there were fish from North Bar to Angel. Reminder to self half scoop is PLENTY.
Back to get the ladies who were securing vittles
We motor to Angel and he was spot on. Arrived around 8:30 to see 11 party barges in play and numerous skiffs. Nets going all around. Thelma calmly cranks up a 10# fish.
Mike sticks a respectable 25# fish
and Chilly roped in a just legal.
And goes off on the flatty
Crazy sailboat race in the midst of the drift with outright brinksmanship between the puff-baoters and the fishing fleet. Cold breeze and light fog. Winds 10 plus and increasing. A few PBs leave and I splits for Paradise. Lonny was snakebit
And I was net bitch
Great weather, 4 party boats and no action. Off to the B flats for windy boredom. I see a crowd at Alcatraz and we drift the SE corner for an hour seeing quite a few fish caught in 40-50 feet. We only saw halibut netted today no stripers. 8 party boats here with 20 plus skiffs in pretty close quarters. Pulled the plug around 3:30. Fun first live bait trip of the season.
