Went out this morning hoping we could fish for a couple hours. We were wrong. It was so rough and windy. We brought along my GO PRO HD and took some video. Here is a short clip of us slowing down right off thomas point and taking a wave right over the bow. Then turning around and running back in. Notice every wave we hit on the way back in water goes flying out to the side.

the first part of the video is right when we slow down that shows just how steep the waves were.

Well, you now have another story to tell people about opening day for this year. Glad everything worked out coming back safely. I'm sure many TF guys have done something similar at one time or another. If anybody on one of those ships saw you, they probably were shaking their heads and wondering about the crazy guys in the only boat out there. Come on good weather. Thanks for my morning entertainment from TF.

I think we all did crazy things like that when we were younger. Glad you guys made it back OK. Look forward to nicer day videos.

Give me a break!! It was rough, but not dangerous!

As predicted, it was doable this am early, but picking up throughout the day.

[edit: let's see how many times I get nagged for saying it wasn't dangerous!]

Ah yes, the TF condescending lectures are still alive and well. It was rough, but not death-defying. We've all gone out on sketchy days.

LILY: I'm surprised at you attitude towrard this guy. Especially since you were the guy that tucked his tail between his legs and had his feelings hurt over reactions to your wx reports.

Yeah I agree it was rough but at no time was it "dangerous".

Man I think most the guys on this board have never seen rough water before LOL looks safe to me. Then again I like to push it to the farthest. not much I wont fish in. LOL Now I have been scared in DL Bay, i'd rather be 60 miles offshore when it kicks up then the DL bay

if there was a facebook like button on TF i'd hit it!
Remember Nacho, Do as I say! Not as I do!

It wasn't even close to dangerous early. It was surprisingly ok till 9 or so where we were. Then it wasn't much fun!

I used to get pop out there in stuff like that...After about 20 minutes of coming off the seat, waves over the bow...he would say...." This looks good....Lets try it here"....
