Beautiful day at Sea

Last Saturday was supposed to be sunny and in the 70s but the wind picked up and the seas got rough. At the jetties the tide was going out and the waves got up to 4 to 6 foot. I was reeling in a rod to check the bait and a 26 pound Black drum hit the bait and it was on. I tried to give the rod to Alex but he was chumming. It took about 15 minutes to get it in the boat. Captain Rick used a scale to grab it by the lip so I could unhook it.
After that it started looking dark north of us so we headed back to the yacht basin, traded the big rods for trout rods and started catching sand trout. I even caught some on the fly rod. Of course it was raining the whole time but we caught about 60 trout. We kept 30 or more for dinner and then headed home.
