That's the kind of day it was. No pressures, no traffic, simply - no worries. We didnít light the world on fire but we did have a nice enjoyable day. I don't think we even saw another boat until we came surfing back in. Todayís crew was Bill of Usual Suspects Fame and Jimmy aka Beancounter. If you ever need a crooked Accountant to handle your taxes, Jimmyís your man. Kidding of course!
Fished a handful of wrecks and structure out and around the 10 Fathom wreck. Never saw 10 fathoms of water but hey, if thatís what Bill wants to call it, who am I to argue? Hereís a close up of one of the Knot Heads we caught.
Billy (Team Jackass), didn't call you out there for obvious reasons. Hope you and Dennis did better inside. It was good talking with ya!
And YES, if you're wondering, I'm talking about the Sea Bass, Not the old knot head holding it!
Had a hard time finding the larger class fish and finally gave up, then worked, I mean, Surfed our way back into the bay to finish up with some Spades. Jimmy and Bill worked for them while I held the boat off the pylons. Jimmy had the hot hand and Bill, well, I'll let him speak for himself.
After a fun day of fishing, a few very sore ribs, watching Jimmy take a dive (inside the boat), watching Bill tease the Spades and logging a hundred miles for the day, here's a final shot of the box.
Thanks for the company guys!
Thanks for the ride bud! I deserve a ribbing for sure. We could have limited out in about 15 minutes.....if I could remember how to catch a fish LOL. Now that I can fish again, I need to get back in practice.
Bret you had a better day than us catching thats for sure. Great talking to you and Bill. Great report!

Funny! Back in my racing days at Langley Speedway, the announcer calling the race would always mess up my name and call me Bert. My sister in-law and nephew still call me that at times.
Either way, I'm sure you saved some fuel staying in close. I'll be out again tomorrow but plan to stay inside. See if we can find some flat fish and maybe a few Spades.
See you on the water.
Bret and crew
Not a bad cooler of fish.
Thanks for the invite old man. Sorry about the fall in the floor move but somebody had to test that floor out. Nice boat you got there Brett. Sure you will have other days when you bloody it up better. By the way it's Jimmie not Jimmy. Got that one from my grandfather who started me fishing when I was about 5. Was good to finally get out on your new ride and fish with Bill and you. Hope to do it again soon. Almost forgot to respond to your disparaging remark concerning my professional endeavors. Nixon said it best " I ain't no crook".
Pretty work fellas.... I too like REELAXING...
