I survived the test run!!!!
A little gustier and windier than I like but beautiful day for the most part. Felt like I paddled 5 miles but was really just holding my position.
Got out on the water late in the afternoon. Dropped two pots at 350ft and 300ft. Had time to test out the gear so I pulled one pot after 90 minute soak. 4 shrimp. 2 small spots and 2 coonstripes. re-dropped at 425 ft.
Definitely some adjustments are required. Didn't feel unsafe at all despite the chop on the water.
I think the system works fine. This body however does not. I am out of shape after this winter!!!!
We will see how they do with a little longer soak tomorrow if the weather cooperates.
