No Wind, Teeny Tiny Waves, BUT LOTS OF.....

...... FISH!!!!  Black Fin Tuna, Puppy Drum, Stripers...

We have been eating like Kings lately!  Stuart lucked out with a place on a boat the other day, and took a trip to the Gulf Stream.  He sent me a bunch of cool pictures- Check 'em out:

It gets all foggy out at the Gulf Stream because of the interaction between warm water (~75F) and cold air (~35F).

The seas tend to be pretty rough, too.

Well, rough enough that Tyler needed to "look overboard" a few times!

All of their hard work ended with this:   (Lucky me!)

So I got inspired, finally went and bought a license, borrowed Drew's rod, stood shoulder to shoulder with a bunch of friendly guys and gals pulling in Drum after Drum after Drum all around me, made sure to use the same setup as everyone else, and didn't catch a dang thing but seaweed and my neighbor's lines!  Hahaha!  Beginner's bad luck, I guess :)  Oh well, try try again... 

I did see a few Harbor Seals on the beach, though, which is pretty cool.

It looks like we're going to get some crazy weather this weekend, so keep an eye on Sunday/Monday as potentially great days for windsurfing!

did you hear that seals at Pier 39 left SF? Looks like they figured out how to teleport to Hatteras.

Word is the speckled trout are also thick on the south beaches. Try there if you haven't already.
