    Life Is Good! And I have The Pictures To Prove It

    Friday evening started out with a cool rainbow in my backyard right after a brief shower. I managed to get a picture of that and one of two Osprey in a tree with the rainbow behind them. I call it my "Rainbow Warrior" shot.Ha!
    Saturday morning I towed my ski to Virginia Beach where I met up with Dave Waters, a U.S. Navy Serviceman who is stationed in Norfolk Va. He recently took up jet ski fishing and wanted to go along on a trip to the Chesapeake Light Tower. He had only seen the CLT from a distance on the deck of a ship.
    The visibility was good at about 25 feet and there were plenty of Spade fish.
    I managed to "Blindside" a Triggerfish, shooting him directly through the eyes, this was a first for me. We were the second ones at the light tower arriving about 0615. By the time we left at 0830 there were at least a dozen boats there. I did see a couple of boats catching the spades on rod and reel. Dave and I came back with four Triggers and eight Spade.
    I covered about 35 miles and burned 7 gallons.
    On the way in I took some pictures along Rudee Inlet, there is always a lot of activity there. I came back to Poquoson Va. and picked up my wife, we went cruising along the shore for a couple of hours. Life Is Good!

    Hey Brian, just curious about the largest fish you've caught so far and wondering about your storage setup. Any pictures?

    I have not caught anything really big from my ski yet, a 57 pound cobia is the largest. I placed it by my feet and covered it with ice from my cooler and went back in. When I am offshore I bring a 6 foot fish bag in case I get a bigee.
    A couple of years ago a buddy and I got caught in a summer thunder storm. 35-40mph winds and 8-10 foot seas. It was not a fun trip back from 30 miles offshore but I never felt the end was near.
