    Default Any Whittier boating/fishing Labor Day weekend?

    Wondering if anyone got out on the water this weekend. Looking at the marine forecast made it an easy choice for me and my 24-foot boat.

    We Went out Friday night and stayed close. It was whipping pretty good all night. We headed for the dock late yesterday afternoon. The water was flat and the rain had let up. I am glad we did. The updated forecast leads me to believe that the ride home tomorrow would have been "sporty" at the very least. We did end up with 24 pounds of shrimp tails, so all was not lost.

    The forecast kept me at home doing projects this weekend. I really wanted to go out, but at least I got a bunch of stuff done in the yard. I might actually be semi-prepared for winter this year.

    We were out as well Friday night. Got tossed a bit on the hook overnight. Decided to spend Saturday night on the trailer watching movies with the kids. :-) looked decent this morning but as we were hitting the tunnel it was starting to cap and blow in passage.

    I'm thinking about sneaking out between fronts this afternoon. We'll see how it looks once we get there. I've got the Paulson bay cabin reserved for the week so at least we'll be warm and dry if we make it out.

    Tempting, but isn't trading fish and game illegal? I could come over for dinner, though. I love tuna!

    WOW that tops my 7 gallons haul last weekend.

    On trading shrimp and tuna... its not illegal to give a friend some shrimp and if he happens to give you some tuna... well that is what friends do.
