I have been one of the lucky boats to have a couple of days during the week, but our fleet is taking it on the chin hard. This time of year everyone has trips on the weekend. Last weekend got totally wiped out and this weekend is not looking any better.
We need a break!
I am thinking, Vodoo, Witch Doctor, or perhaps Native American Ritual of some sort.
Weather Gods Please Help Us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's not what I want to hear.
I know you guys are itching to go too!
BTW only three boats had trips today and it was suprisingly tollerable. I talked with one of them about 9 and they said it was choppy but they were chewin!

you know Jay,
I just bought a brand new boat I thought could take the waves...then, without warning there is gale force winds every weekend and 10-15 foot waves...who in the hell is doing this to me and why?...by the time there is a break on a weekend the boat ramp will be so filled up if I don't get there at 2 am I might not get out til noon...my mate may have lost his touch by now...he was on fire a month ago...or was it two...he hasn't gaffed a fish in a fortnight whatever that is...I have to travel to south america to find some fishing...I swear I started looking at the ponds near my house wondering if there were any bream or bass in them I might throw out a bobber with a cane pole. F-this man I have rigged and rerigged and rigged again and bought more gear so I have something else to rig on the weekend...I have made jewlery for women with rigs and squids on them haha...I pulled a spreader bar in Rudee inlet to see how it trolled last weekend(I am not kidding) I'm losing my mind over here....I am thinking about buying a 300 foot boat to fishout of...then I guess now I couldn't get back in the inlet anyway.....
And thats why I love it baby!
Is that good enough?
