    You know you're hardcore when you go on fishing trips to make bait.

    Well, it looks like I used up my cobia mojo.... the streak ended saturday morning as I tried to run out for a quick strike mission. Actually had a shot at one, but had one hand on the throttle trying to adjust the boat's drift.... almost had the rod ripped from my hand... then 50' away my buddy running a charter hooks up with a 40"er... DOH

    I did get a 20" flounder (fluke to you ;)) on the slowpitch jig to avoid a skunk at least

    Sounds like a salvaged trip with the Fluke catch. Lucky your rig didn't wind up in Davey Jones' locker! :)

    Super strong.... minimum legal size is 36" at the fork (can get 80lbs or so)... pretty damn fun on that light tackle.

    No BFTs here... ever

    Headed out tomorrow for a 1.5 day Tilefish trip. Weather looks marginal with medium seas and wind in the Hudson Canyon. Bringing 1 entirely new rig and 1 new reel to see how it performs. Got some new sash weights too as the headboats only provide bank sinkers and we're fishing @ 500ft + .

    Due to current, the experience was more a trial by ordeal than a nice comfy fishing trip. We were in 500ft+ most of the trip but had to use 5lbs of lead to hold bottom. Wore my battery down far faster than usual and made for a challenging day. Stuck myself twice with hooks and that was painful. All in all, not my best nor my worst trip. :)
