Default Red Schnappa!!!

OMG, I got to give my crew an A+, after fighting 7-8' waves in the afternoon. After getting our 4 schnappa by 11:50, we decided to troll and see what transpired. The wind picked up at exactly 12:00, as predicted. We were only out in 103' of water, so out about 25 miles, and by 1:30 were running into 7-8' waves, and I am not kidding, or over estimating. Sterling told me there were small craft warnings. Not surprised. We only burned 90 gals, compared to our normal 140-150 gals.

We did get our 4 schnappa, and we were all legal, one fish apiece, hence the pics with one finger up. This pic was for the Pew Foundation and all our govt regulators that protect the fish, and let them know that we don't overfish. Notice the smiles. Not only did we have to battle the seas, but we also battle a full moon, another big thank you!! There were very few boats out. We might have seen 5 boats all day. Puddin' and Chittlin were along, and we haven't given John a nickname yet. Although I was thinking that since he wrapped braid around the starboard prop it should be something like clusterfck. Even the Captain, Cornbread, got a nice feesh. Notice the smiles!

Hope you guys are able to get out. Stay safe.

We ran out of Canaveral Friday afternoon and turned around after sloggin along at 10 knots in 5-6 ft at 5 seconds. Tried again yesterday in 4-6 that started to build as th day went on. 6 snappa (one for each crew member) and 2 nice Cobia off the bottom in the 30 plus pound range. 35 miles to our drop spot on the 21 and 35 miles back. We literally did not see a single boat on the water once we left the port as the conditions were shit...hopefully the wind subsides so some folks can get out today.

It’s Freeman weather out there boys-). Kidding!

My buddy peaked his 34' CC outside the inlet and turned around. No point in a hammering for 1 fish per person.

You sir have more dedication then me.
