I guess I've been spoiled by mostly making my boating trips on off days. Launched Friday night and it was not terribly busy, but came back to port Sat a little after 7pm figuring I'd have a kick back time making the 8pm tunnel, then we turned the corner into the harbor.
The boats were jockying in a line from the fuel dock all the way the ramps. I had my daughter drop me off on one of the docks and ski-daddled to get my truck wishing her luck on her fist time bringing the boat into the dock. By the time we were pulling the boat up the ramp it was 8pm. Managed to get the tie down cranked down and headed for the tunnel.
Is this the norm retrieving on weekends? Fishing was very slow, did manage to get my neighbor on his first halibut, but it was the only halibut boated. Managed a few rockfish and several lings but all the lings were too small.
