Good bait today, went a long ways out. Put 101 miles on the boat. Nice snapper, don't think it was worth the ride. 1-2' seas, but the wave spacing made it rough.

Trolling motor has been on the fritz for over a week, waiting for parts. Makes it hard to hold up in a cabin type boat. I dropped a line twice, caught my two snapper.

Kinda expensive meat.

Of course, it's the experience that counts. 30 years ago, I had to catch 300# of Grouper per day to make it worth my effort. In the winter I seldom went over 20 miles from the dock but summertime it was often 80 miles. That was not sport fishing. I preferred to fish by myself or take somebody who just wanted to fish and take a fish or two home. Druther take my kid anytime back then. Of course, he is in Afghanistan right now.
