Tough Day but scraped by 11/25 quickie (Wahoo, snapper, lobster)

Had a chance to get on a 306 Grady (just like my old boat) w long time friends Deep Dropper and Jim.
Forecast was sporty, but we decided to try to get across for 1/2 day.
Got 3 miles off LWI and it was ugly (NW at 15, 3-5' plus and snotty)
Inside I was thinking maybe suggest Plan B, but we pushed on, and 35 off it finally laid down to 2-4 than 1-2.
Took care of paperwork, and ran up N in the channel. Water clean, saw some good water, put a few bugs in boat.:angel

Ran up to some #'s and caught some Cuda for deep drop and wahoo fished for a bit.
Boating some wahoo, losing some, had one eat lead and bite thru the 300lb shock etc etc. :banghead
Did some drops and had to dial in, but plenty of decent Tasty Yellow Eye snappers up to 24"

Note had a young tiger try and come eat one 20' under boat. Beast Master 1 Tiger 0 !!!
Boxed just enough to feed our families and headed W
Headed back at 35 in 1-2' and cleaned up, wrote this report, and running the Wild Billz boat w Bluewater Movements Pres Jamie Bunn to the 305 in the AM.
Will be running Wild Billz video production / chase boat for leg 2 in Mia and excited.

They have the first 2 Wild Billz episodes up on Website if anyone is interested or has not seen!

New Budgie adjusting well and wahoo tacos, stone crabs and bbq Lobster for birds and humans today.
Fair winds and following seas to all of you all. E$ out.
