    we left early with plans of running offshore for some state snapper and then we were going to troll the beachfront and try to find some big jacks (time to stock up on bait/chum.) Ofcourse the weatherman played a good April fools joke on us and the 2-4s that were forecasted weren't even close. We puttered out a few miles and quickly got tired of taking a beating/drenching so I turned it around. Luckily I had somewhat of a back up plan which resulted in a couple pounds of crabs. The bad news is the drum didn't get the memo that they were supposed to be hungry... We did quite a bit of boat riding to ensure the boat was going to be alright after its recent date with another mechanic but did end up with a couple drum. Nothing special just two drum and a drenching...

    Heres a friend of mine hooked up

    It was a slow day and the coast guard decided to keep basically running circles around us until I was irritated enough to leave.. I guess they were bored too..
