managed two blue fish but it's tough going on the beach with the wind and rain.

Came back inside after the lightning started, but all we were catching were huuuuuge sea mullet. We also caught something really weird looking, that didnt seem to have scales...looked up a pic and identified it as a red hake AKA ling. Not a bad start for a few hours fishing..

Oh,nw wind is a fact of life here in Frisco... Only wind that really affects us though,and it has to blow over 40 to get into my yard... Not sure where your at,but it should be that bad at 35...

Did you go out there to 38 or behind Food Lion to rescue the guy from the sailboat???? 60'er aground on shore just s of the pier.. A friend and I called the coast guard while we watched him aimlessly go inside the outer bar,then go aground.... Word was,asleep at helm....:rolleyes:

Yeah, that thing provided more entertainment then the crappy fishing. I give up. 4 trips of at least 4 days each, 16 days total fishing and one small puppy drum out of all those trips combined. Couldn't keep the dogs and skates off the lines long enough today to land more then a few more monster sea mullet and nothing else...

Yessir Mr. DD, I was out there gettin wet with my gear on gettin that fool!! I should have pics soon, (I bet there are some floating around already). Did you stay and watch it all? He was (and still is as of this afternoon), located off Yucca street. Google that boats name "Gypsy Dane" and you can see he has already cost the government a huge chunk of change in rescuing him before... http://hamptonroads.com/2008/11/navy-crew-rescues-lone-sailor-left-adrift-after-storm

As far as asleep at the helm, I don't know all the details, but I think the fella might not be put together fully.

Back to blowing hard, tomorrows forecast is gale warning with winds whippin outta the NW 55mph+!! Gotta move the cars and get ready to rake eel grass for a week eh? I think this might get your feet damp DD. I haven't seen it blow this hard outta that direction yet, should be exciting at least!!:D:D
