Fished with the Mikes on Sunday. It was windy. Very windy. Hard northeast. Most guys would have been worried. Not the Mikes. With those guys the conditions don't matter. We gave it a go and caught and released two nice stripers to 26 inches. We also had a bunch of strikes we missed. Plenty of action.

Fished with Cory and friends yesterday. The goal was to catch some mahi. We fell short. The cooler weather had pushed them off a bit. We did catch four Bonita, an albie, and all the blues we wanted to catch.
Fished with Mike and Ryah in the ocean for sharks on Thursday afternoon. We saw a bunch but only hooked three. However, two of the three were over 100 pounds. And no, the one pictured is not 100 pounds....that was the small brown shark we caught. The bottom picture is a big one.
