New Years Day on SD Bay

Happy New Years Big Waters Edge Family. FishingMike and I went out this morning from the Shelter Island Yacht Basin. We launched at about 0700 hours. The air was cold and wet and the water was cold. Not as cold as I thought it would be. No breeze. Fog was thick.

Nothing on the troll out. Slow lazy bites. Took a lot of work to land my first fish. Macks bit on the reel in. Spotties hit from the bottom. Most hits and hooks were on ghost shrimp lures. Drift and wind blew us out towards the bait barge. Fog was dangerously thick. At about 0915ish the current and breeze pushed me fast past the bait barge. Fog settled heavy. Glad I had my whistle. Blew it several times mostly out of fear that motors were not paying attention. Highly recommend that you all bring your safety gear.

After 4 hours on the water final count:

FishingMike - 5 Macks and 1 Spotties
Bubbacee7 - 4 Macks and 3 Spotties

Be safe.
