This is what the weather report said for Wednesday the 29th of May, "Wednesday, A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Partly sunny, with a high near 86. Breezy, with a south southeast wind 17 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 31 mph."
Very borderline for whether we go fishing or not. We chose to take a chance and go about 7:30am. Arriving 8:45am the Land Cut it was very breezy but certainly tolerable. By 11:00am the winds got breezier and we decided to wrap up the days fishing and get back knowing we'd have 3 foot swells to navigate through.
Tye Barrett from Alberta Canada managed to catch a nice 22 inch black drum in our brief few hours of fishing. Tye working at Shell Oil part of a work force preparing a new platform will be headed back home soon.
The boat ride home was treacherous most of the way back. Rocky Slough, Baffin Bay areas were especially rough to cross. When we got home I looked up the weather report and this is what it said: "A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Partly sunny, with a high near 87. Breezy, with a southeast wind around 28 mph, with gusts as high as 34 mph." It was certainly a high adventure trip to say the least.
Y'all have a great day of fishin,
