4/12 PM: Seemed Like a Good Idea...

On the heels of yesterday's bail-fest, I knew I had to fish today. Wokeup around 7 to catch Jose feeling up some yo-zuris and was instantly game-on. Unfortunately I passed back out until around 10. Snapped to life when I saw sun shining through my window. Leapt out of bed, cued the metal and got in the shower with thoughts of whale cod in my mind.

Called a few slay-homies until I found an eager e-sea-e ready to rock and roll. Grabbed his friend and game was on like yes.

Cleared the sound by noon and was en-route to the slaying grounds. The day seemed gorgeous. FAC conditions, sunny skies and the cat purring at a cool 25kts. Smack was talked, rigs were rigged, the stage was set for an epic day of slay aboard the Phallic Thunder. We went to the numbers I had saved from yesterday and E was quick to strike with a nice 10lb'er. Something was different from yesterday though. The fish weren't nearly as concentrated today as they were yesterday. We bounced around in the facinity of my numbers from the day before with few fish for our efforts. We were marking plenty of bait, the fish just weren't turned on.

After making the call to move a ways away, E noticed some birds over a whale. I mentioned to him the correlation from yesterday between the cod and the whales. We decided to setup a drift. And, lawdy was it on. For the next two hours it was tripple hook-ups and tripple hook-ups. We had found the fish from yesterday and in a big way. Fish after fish after fish came over the rail. Everything from clams to jigs to BERKLEY GULP! http://www.purefishing.com were slaying the codfish.

After three succesful drifts, we noticed the seas were kicking up, and in a mean way. A fog bank had rolled in, a slight drizzle was happening and the NOAA chick was offering no solace. We decided to pack it up and make a run for home. The ride home...well...in a few words...fahkin sahked! Steep 3-5's with a very short period, 100 yards of vis, 40 degree temps...ew. To kick it even further into "soggy ****e sangy" it began to downpour and lighting once we go to halfway. Was it worth it you ask? Hells yah.

The Berkley Gulp! http://www.purefishing.com Final Tally was +/- 70 fish for three hours of fishing, influenza and I'm pretty sure mild hypothermia. Fish today were higher than yesterday, located between 90 and 105 feet of water and again were all about the more mellow twitch to the jigs and teasers. Jigs outfished vaginas and teasers 2:1.

Sounds like a blast J. Been working every minute I can on the new boat trying to get it ready. Possibly de-virginizing her on friday if all goes well... Hit me up sometime when you are around

The levers to the right of the big round thing on the dash can be pushed forward to make the boat go faster.

Rippy I can tell you've never been on, or within smell distance of the cat. In order to get to the moving lever thingys you have to weave your hand past the mine field of tetnus waiting to happen where J keeps all his retired rusty fish slayers. Then, you have to sweep away all the black and milds to find the base of the lever thingys. Then, you need to whip out your electrical tape to re connect the throttle wiring to get the lever thingys to react. Of course assuming there is hydrolic fluid in there.

Hey Ike, you sponsored by Pure Fishing now?

Why settle for Berkely or Pure Fishing? Think big and go for a nice cheesy graphic wrap on the twin hulls, courtesy of Jarden Corporation. That way you can get a lifetime of supplies from all of Jarden's companies:
  • All the Berkely Gulp you can eat
  • A new Penn or Abu Garcia reel for every fish you catch (they should be considered disposable anyway)
  • Enough Stren Superbraid to tie up all your "dates"
  • Shakespeare Ugly Stiks for when Whisky Dick is on board
  • A K2 Helmut for yourself. Just like they made you wear in grade school
  • ExOfficio pastel-colored shirts to form a matching "Team" outfit
  • Marmot sleeping bags and a Coleman stove in case you breakdown and have to sleep out there

Eric,

Certainly some part of the boat mustn't have made it through the trip. It wouldn't be a run with JJ without some part breaking

Glad to hear you're back buddy.

actually, while we were out, I noticed some piece of metal, a rectangle with a threaded hole it, kicking around the deck. I said hey JJ, whats that? and he said "oh, yeah thats just because..." and just kinda trailed off from there.
