Default 18 Feb and 20 Feb Mid-Bay Bridge

18 Feb - Launched around 0930 and headed south working pilings towards the channel. Landed a total of 10 sheepshead from 14" to 20", a 27" black drum, and 4 or 5 undersize grey snapper.

20 Feb - Launched with H-MANEOD at sun-up from White Point and worked our way out the channel. The wind and chop was a bit bigger than yesterday's forecast called for until it calmed down around 1030. H-MANEOD landed a 21" sheepshead, grey snapper, rat red, and 29" red on live shrimp. I landed a 29" red on a croaker I had caught and sent back down as livebait, wrangled a 36" red away from the pilings on liveshrimp, small jack crevalle, monster pinfish, and 18" sheepshead on the way back in. The bite definitely picked up as it got warmer and the wind calmed, but we had to leave them biting. Good times!

SWEET!!!! We launched out of Rocky Bayou and never made it. Clutch Dog went out and we lost forward drive. So we used the trolling motor in BWB Marina and Rocky Bridge with no nibbles at all

Dang, that sucks, sorry to hear it! Rocky Bayou was pretty slow when I hit it last Friday, one sheepshead and only lost 3 shrimp after like 3 hours.
