Golden Gate Trollathon

Debra and I had a Friday night Giants game so we just stayed aboard all weekend. Keegan and Mike rolled into the Java Hut at 8 AM and we were off to City Yacht for fuel. Nice lady relieved me of some $600. Tanks both now a little over half full. Last $600 I put in in April lasted 6 trips. It has been a fun summer on the ocean.

Had some fog on the deck on the way out so I was grateful for radar.

There was an over abundance of life. Whales, birds, dolphins, seadogs and bait for miles. Full haystacks blanking out the meter and beautiful scattered balls. They were brailling the surface everywhere we went. We worked from Dux to Muir, inside to outside for one fish.

On the water Gyros platters for four from Estia in North Beach did not hurt matters, thank you Deb!

Fog came in hard in the afternoon but the swell was down all day.  Good times.
