Blowing In The Wind
Yesterday afternoon I towed my jet ski across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and dropped at Kiptopeke State Park.
It was blowing a steady 25 kts out of the NE so figured I could still fish in the shoals close to Fisherman Island.
I saw three other boats when I cam across the High Rise but nobody was there when I arrived.
I anchored in 9 feet as close to the breakers as I could tolerate and fished for Red Drum using live hard crab.
Had one good run that came off, other than that I was just blowing in the wind.
Still worth the try and I am sure I will try again soon.
Here is a short video of me losing my one Drum Run. The lens got covered with sea mist.
Here is a video of me bobbing in the waves.

my dad said he met ya at the ramp that day. I see what he means when he said it was blowing like crazy.

Cool. He was the only other boat at the ramp. They said they had caught some Reds the previous couple days.

Darn you, Brian! Since my e-buddies on another forum discovered you, I've been obsessed with skiing to the Bahamas before I get too old.

Ha! Go to Freeport if you choose the Bahamas.

It is further away but a lot more to do when you get there. Bimini is nice but you run out of things to see and do real quick.
