    It was very sporty today, we made it out and we saw tuna but could't stay too long, the weather get really nasty and the Captain made the call to turn back.
    few pictures to show you guys how rough it was :)

    Tight lines

    Wow that looks ruffer than that trip I did with you on the seabreeze 3 or 4 years ago. It was straight nasty that day we should have called the trip.

    Hard to fish when your hanging on! Tomorrow should be a little nicer. Maybe a bit rainy, but a whole lot better than that pic. We were planning on going but think we are going to wait for a little nicer window where we can fish a couple days. Hope the better WX comes soon.

    We put up the mileage today and we failed to find any fishes,
    I heard of 1 fish caught on the troll today and it was an 85 inch.

    Yesterday, we covered a lot of real estate as well. We actually saw the the boat that hooked up to that 85" fish. It was picked up on the edge of a school of dolphins. The boys made some attempts and casted & jigged in the same area but no takers.

    Even though we didn't hook up during the trip we had non-stop laughter on the Smoker with a great group, Evan, Adrian, Jorge and Jamal.
    Capt Brynner was determined and relentless and Mate Jason left us with a memorable experience.

    Here here Tom. I guess you could say we had about as much fun as a group could have without seeing a tuna, both on the smoker and in the nice house we rented in Nags Head.

    Jorge Jomal and I were especially stoked when we met up with a distinguished group of anglers the first night at Sami's house. I'm hoping someone will post some pics from that night.

    The two Toms, Adrian and I have all seen OBX at its best, but I was super bummed that Jorge and Jomal were not able to experience that; there is always next year. :)

    Evan, thanks for putting me back in the loop. It appears that Big Tom has forgot about me. I guess he was still excited about Jason and the Strudel!

    You can't catch fish sitting on the couch....

    Every great fishery goes through dry spells, that's why they call it fishing, not catching. It is really all about getting your shots when mother nature and life's schedule allows, and having a good time. Chasing tuna can be very frustrating, but it is this frustration that leads to the challenge, and even greater enjoyment of the bite when you are fortunate to be there at the right time.

    Nice to see people taking a chance and just going for it, looking to make their own luck instead of report chasing.
