Wanted to get out on the water before the winds started howling again. After calling everyone on my phone, finally asked my 73 year-old neighbor (Fuzzy) if he wanted to go fishing. He said "Sure", so we headed out this morning around 7:15AM.
Trolled for about 1.5 hours, no luck. Winds started picking up from the North, so we headed in to the 70ft reef off of Juno. Got a couple of small yellowtails, then some of nice size...but then Mr. Shark and his Sharkey friends were taking them off our hooks as fast as we could catch them.
So we move about 1/4 mile north and pull in a Rainbow Runner. Then Fuzzy's rod bends over and he is tugging and pulling away...lo and behold a Big Fat Porgy comes to the boat. Very nice size fish.
By now there are whitecaps all over, hard to hold bottom, so we head in to Blowing Rocks. Did not slay the fish today, but my neighbor took home some nice filets and will surely be telling the other Snowbirds all about his "Big Catch". Sure beats staying around the place and "not fishing".
