Well the plan was 0600 at the QA for 3 or 4 hrs then to Tunstall for the low slack....Reality was a blowing northerly outflow with 5 mph currents heading south and i gave up after 30 min when I couldn't turn the boat back into the wind...

So it was off to Tunstall a few hours early....burned fuel there going in circles until 1015 when a nice fish hit my anchovy at 110 feet..he started slow but once he realized he was hooked he half spooled me....about 50 feet of the back of the boat he jumped like a rocket and flipped his head in the process catching his freedom...dam

An hour later another hit again anchovy at 110ft....good fighter...problem was I didn't have time to get my downrigger up and the bugger wrapped and snapped....mind you that was after the rookie net minder bopped him on the nose with the net...dam again...

Half hour before tide change a 3rd hit right of the clip stripped my anchovy again at 110 ft without sticking....dam dam dam....

Oh well at least I was out there on the water getting some action....there were two other boats out there but they got nothing...

Of interest all hits were on the side with stainless cable and a black box pulsing...the braided line side was skunked...hmmmmmmmmm i wonder.....

On the radio it sound like the gang at Thrasher and Gabriola were on the bite for a while...
