It was a bumpy ride out. Rain clouds off/on near the shore. Beautiful rainbow. Funnel cloud that came half-way down to the sea. Spooky. Slow day for trolling. Could be the fish bite stopped for weather reasons.

Anyhow, Bill was first in line for when a fish was hooked. Bill is a coworker and friend. They landed this nice cow about 5-7 lbs. She was rather mad about being put on ice - - a solid icebox fight for 2 minutes kicking the sides.

For bottom bumping, Bill pulled up chickens (nickname for short snapper) while my son picked up this rather large black sea bass. Good eats. He goes in the cooler for mama.
They're never more than a pound or so, but they do have very tender white meat.

Not much else happening so they decided to call it a day and save the gas. They were back home by 4pm where the little one and I were just starting to make dinner. I opted to stay home to nurse a bad back.
(Gee, you'd think this was a mid-west farm report with funnel clouds, cows and chickens. ha ha)

Looks like the boys had a good time - and some good fishing! I'm sorry your back is still bothering you. I'll keep you in my prayers!

Love and hugs!
