Headed out of the patterson boat launch for my first ever trip to the bay early on Saturday morning. When we arrived at the launch @ 6am it was relatively calm wind wise. Started out of the channel and immediately into 2-4' waves. Headed northwest and set up shop. Drifted towards shore from 24 fow right on into 4 fow, needless to say we covered a lot of ground. We drifted this three times, each time starting the drift south of the previous. 1st drift no fish, 2nd drift 3 fish, biggest going 18". By this time it was very rough out there and no boats except for us. 3rd and final drift nothing. Rough day, but the fish were definately worth it. Hot & Tot's and double jointed rap. got the fish. Had other hits on bouncers and harness but nobody home.
