Got out early and was pleasantly supprised that wind was near calm........ But forecast was for 15-20 with gusts to 30 so knew window was short but wanted to make the best of it..... Had 14 rods out by 7am lot of bait in 80 feet of water but crossed it at all angles and could not get a hit.... Headed west towards parkers and saw a beautiful thing......gannets diving!!!!!! Made a pass from east-west and nothing.....circled around and boat rod goes down...... Chartruce umbrella with 20oz out 100 fish fought hard for a 34incher..... Sea lice all over the deck.... First I've seen this year..... Got boat back on track and in 20 minutes it went from 7mph to 20.... New it was only going to get worse so pulled them and headed In what a windy first week!!!
