Had the day off yesterday so my buddy and I went out of PS for a afternoon of fishing. Due to prior engagements, we had to fish the afternoon, but it was beautiful day and almost glass on the water. Only having a small boat, and slight chances for thunderstorms I was reluctant to hit the deep waters, so we only fished the 35-50 ft depths. Marked lots of bait in 40 fow south of the pierheads out by the sailboat bouys limige told me about. Thanks for the help by the way. Had all 6 rods set by 2pm. Got the first fish action about 20 minutes later, rigger rod 20 ft down, bounced 4 or 5 times before popping, but no fish. I was running sliders so I think it hit the slider and got off. Ran the second rigger on the bottom. Second rigger popped ten minutes later and boated a 8-9lb greaser, just to get the stink out of the boat.
Fishing went quiet for the next two hours and ended up losing one other fish off the riggers, and ended the night with a 4lb coho. All in all it was a nice day on the water, but didn't see another boat all day. Water temps were about 56 degrees, got all the action on one rigger, monkey puke took the greaser, and got the coho on cottonmouth off a slider. Sorry I didn't take any pics, I was too tired by the time I got home. Oh I forgot to mention, that stupid coho couldn't pop the rigger release, I must've had it set to far back in the pad, so in my attempt to get it to release, I snapped my rod. But we still managed to get the fish in the boat.
