NADA

Struck out catching gogs and blue runners, but got a HUGE ballyhoo on a slow-trolled Sabiki.,.. :)

........ran out 10 miles..........no weed, no edges, saw 2 flyers, 1 bird, and a turtle!

    Don't feel bad, I was out deep dropping the other day (slow) and heard the charter guys talking. One had a mackerel, the other had a bonito and a remora, and a third hadn't had a bite. This was at about 1:30 pm. You quickly hear about the good days, but very few will post about their slow days, or the skunk days! Good luck next time.

    When I get skunked its basically just pouring fuel on the fire for future hurtings that I'm gonna put on em. Its the fishes way of saying that you gotta get up earlier, run farther out, re-tie more often etc

    What's your story when you get skunked?

    1.  It was still a beautiful day on the water.

    2.  That’s why they call it fishing, not catching.

    3.  I don’t go to catch fish, I go to relax.

    4.  It was a nice day for a boat ride.

    5.  I just needed to run the engine.

    6.  There was a good band playing at The Jetty, so we came in early.

    7.  It’s not how many fish you catch, it’s how good you look fishing.

    8.  I just wanted to work on my tan.

    9.  I enjoy bird watching as much as catching fish.

    10.  I didn’t get skunked, I ran out of time.

    Boat ran good, nobody got hurt, fish are optional.

    As for the bird watching, I do that too.

    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you
