Default Rough Day off Okaloosa

So who woke up this morning in an alcohol induced haze, looked at the cams and thought it would be a good idea to go offshore? This guy . I even managed to drag Blackjeep out with me. Launch wasn't so bad, but once we got out a couple miles, the wind started howling. What followed was cold wet pain. We had to peddle over 1.5mph to try and hold position. When we would catch a fish, we'd find ourselves a couple hundred yards SE of the spot. Gutted it out for 3 hours and called it. 4 flounder, 2 Redfish and a shark were all we managed to catch. The trip back in was brutal. I can't remember the last time it took so long to go 2.5 miles. Gonna be sore as hell tomorrow.

My hats off to you!!! I wouldn't have even tried it in a boat. Guess sometimes you just have to grin and bear it.
