We left the boatel at 9:30a and by the time we got to the first island the ships were
turned about half way so I thought we would be doing good with the incoming tide
just starting. Thats as far as the ships ever turned as far as I can tell and there was
never any incoming tide...Wire lined the first and second but no current no fish....
Ran down to the SBC and trolled toward the first marking lots of bait and fish but
no takers and kept picking up grass on the lures. Switched over to casting and
managed to pick up five.

Does anyone know if this lack of incoming is going to be with us for a while?
I'de like to try again tomorrow but don't know if I should try to hit the last bit
of the outgoing (can't get the boat out until 8am) or hassle with the poor incoming.....

Didn't hear anything good on the radio and only saw one or two caught trolling....

Atleast you tried Howard. Cant catch em if you dont go. I am hoping it gets better by Saturday, but the current charts arent looking too good. Like maybe .6 or maybe .8 knots
Thanks for the report
