    Ocean Adventure

    Every time I go out it is an adventure, today was no exception. Todd West and I stopped at Atlantic Bait and Tackle in Virginia Beach this morning and loaded up on eels before heading out for another Cobia trip. We dropped our jet skis in at Owls Creek Boat Ramp and headed out of Rudee Inlet around 0745. The weather was all over the place with clouds, light rain, fog and then sun later in the morning. Sea conditions were fair with a two to three foot seas and 8-10 foot ground swells from the remnants of the hurricane offshore. We worked the CB Buoy line about 10 miles offshore of the beach. The water around buoys 1-4 was clear and a pretty pale blue, that is the area we found all of our fish. Saw about a dozen Cobia, most of them were small. We caught 4 and kept one about 40 inches. He will be dinner tomorrow! We got back to the ramp around 1300 hrs. I have been fortunate to fish 5 out of the last 7 days, it has been a blast! This weekend I am volunteering at an educational booth at Bay Days in Hampton Va. My neighbor Julian and I will be demonstrating how to raise Oysters through aquaculture. Here are some pictures from today.

    wow I wish I had a spare ski to do this. Not having to worry about putting $400 in gas and still catching fish is a plus.

    The fuel aspect is always a PITA...

    I was hoping to post my own adventure from this weekend as I'd planned a trip to the marsh via PWC. My dad intervened and w/him being 73 yrs. old, I ended up guiding him in the bass-boat. Once we navigated the main channels and bayous to nearly 20 miles from the ramp, the water pump on the outboard called it a day. It was "run and shut down" (once the heat light came on) off and on for a couple of hours. Not much of an adventure, but at least we made it back to the ramp w/o a tow... Oh, the joys of owning a boat. (Boat (n): A hole in the water in which one pours money into.)
