ONE THING LEADS TO ANOTHER

Posted by admin
Saturday was a mission. Headed Westside early, 4am early and rigged up the Capri M. in hopes of some smooth fishing as the weather report indicated favorable conditions the day before. Arrive at the harbor with Uncle and Simi and the place is packed, nobody launching due to the stiff onshores already blowing at 5am, not a good sign. Everybody waiting for sunrise to see what the ocean looks like. We decide to launch just before dawn to get the jump on the 50 other boats lined up and get just outside the breakwater when we realize we need to return to the dock, the ocean is out of control, I'm talking victory at sea type shit. No shame in returning at least we will live to fish another day.

So on my way home at 7am I give my Eastside buddy Sky a call and ask how the conditions are out there. He replies with an energetic "cherry". After telling him about my defeat out West we decide to give it a go outside his friend Adam's house who just happens to have a most enviable sun deck as you can see. Couple hours later I have a Awa Awa in the kayak and am all smiles. Note to self "never give up".
