It’s all good. It was a rare Thursday off for us. The weather looked pretty sporty out there, I’m not sure we would have made one if we had one in the books. We had to cancel our trip for today and the office added one for the 18th, that looks like it will be our next chance to get out. Everything should be well rested by then.
Did ya'll make it out? How was it if you did? I'm on the May 2 trip in 2 weeks.

Oh the weather looks pretty frightful oh the wind is not delightful. I wish it would cease to blow. I want to go want to go want to go.

FWIW I'm good with 4-6's and 15-20kt winds.... Should be good tuna fishing in that chop... If we can get out there.

If the Thursday Friday trip gets added would we be able to transfer over from the may 9th trip? There are six of us and weather is looking pretty bad for Monday Tuesday
I'd recommend calling the office and asking. I don't know how many had to drop off due to the date change. I know its always a good thing to have more people wanting to go..

Fingers crossed for improvement. I thought windfinder updates every 6 hours. Midnight, 6am, noon and 6pm. The GFS model that it is based on runs on that schedule. It will drive you crazy watching for updates starting 10 days out. Its crazy how much the forecast can swing from run to run. That said, this one has been fairly stable with only minor variations on when it lays down. I'll keep hoping for improvement. Personally 6's at 6 and dropping is fine by me. Tuna like a lil chop on the surface. (Granted I don't have to pay the liability insurance so its an easy call for me. 😃) It also looks better to the east than south. Of course we would have to run quartering into the seas to get east.
