Well dont have a great report full of juicy pics but I did go out sunday for a few hours.Got starter problem all fixed up amongst other items(bilge pumps,auto switch,kicker carb etc).The guy who works for me was supposed to go but flaked sun am,and a neighbor who asked to go flaked out at 9pm sat night.So i woke up my boys 12 and 17 sunday and begged em to go so i didnt have to go solo.They agreed but meant we had to go sharkin and maybe squeeze in a little trolling(They dont like fishing much unless the fish are biting furiously!!
Launched SL marina 9am off to HP to fish,set the hook by 930am.Tide was incoming.windy,and rockin and rolling and did not see many boats out.The rays kept the kids busy probably got 15,1 sandshark,2 small leapords about 3ft,1 small seven gill and one sevengill about 50".Pulled the hook ran over to ARW around 1 or so.Tried trolling in bumpy windy conditions for an hour or 2.Had a driveby on a sardine flasher combo,nothing on straight herring rig.Only did 2 poles as the boys couldnt seem to run the trolling motor for me long enough for me to fish another pole.Nice day with the kids but itchin to do some serious butt fishin soon.Atleast there seemed to be some life in the bay as 2 weeks ago we couldnt catch a ray even.
