Default 3/7-8 Spur Report

Had originally planned on going to the rigs but decided to head to the spur instead and try and get a sword. Left around 1300 with Logan, Rob, Jason, and myself into a beautiful but chilly afternoon. Had a very nice ride out, pretty much flat all the way to the Spur. Got to the spur with a couple hours of daylight left and we found a rip that we worked for a little while. Nothing to show for those efforts so we set up our drift. Was a nice slow drift on flat seas until about 0230 and the wind kicked up a bit and it got a little choppy. With the drift sock we were only drifting about 1 knot so it wasn't to bad. Had a large school of ballyhoo circle our light for the first half of the night as well and a few flyers made their way into the light but no predators to be seen and no sword bites. Picked up the lines at daylight with only an oilfish to show for it. By the way, it was COLD!

Headed North into a stiff breeze and choppy conditions. Put some lines in the water and took it easy for an hour or two and then it calmed some and we made good time. Decided to put some meat in the box before we headed in so stopped and jigged up a mess of jacks and had to release 5 gags and 3 scamp....hurts to have to let a 30lb gag swim away but it was good to see them all swim away strong to live another day. Capped off our day with a quick stop for some flounder but the area was really crowded with boat traffic so we only got one before we headed in. I didn't take a single picture but the guys took a bunch and some gopro video so they will post it here when they can. Can't wait to get back out there and do it again!

Ah, the no hernia crowd with big balls and high hopes. Must be nice to be healthy and young! Go get some more..... but that damn sword will try to hurt you! Good luck and stay safe. Will be watching for the video..... as long as it doesn't hurt.

As for the cold, I slept fine.

Good luck, stay safe, and try it again.

Thanks for posting Adam, sounds like it was a good trip, there is always a next time for the sword ... Hopefully some crew who went to the rigs will post.
