Boy was the bite OFF for us today, my buddy Billy and I left the inlet @ 0630, and we were greeted by a ground swell and alot of cross chop. We headed for the Sea bouy and headed north looking for birds or something on the sounder. After about 2miles of a beating we turned back south and trolled every thing in the arsenal, Nada. Decided to run back into the inlet and drift some eels , had a few bumps and 1 wounded eel. We ended up back at the ramp @ 1400 with a distinctive smell onboard. Talked to the guys at the dock and only heard of one other striper caught. I hope the weather gets better soon[sad].
