Larry--
Pretty good considering the conditions. Did you mark many fish? How was the traffic at the mouth (assume it was pretty bad judging by your "combat zone" comment). I may be up next weekend, hopefully the fish are still there, and the boats aren't.

vanwagm,the mark was good deep,we marked lots of in 90 to 105,bait fish and fish70ft to the bottom,also marked single fish high 15ft to 35ft we would loose the mark inside 85.i think we might done better out there if we got a earlier start,didn't start setting lines to 11:30.we marked alot of baitfish in 65ft to 55ft ,trolling in but din't see any fish there,also no hits there. the combat wasn't to bad this weekend,i think the waves kept alot of boats away,it's still always adventure trolling the mouth,especally in 2 to 4ft waves,we put a double on trolling into the waves with only two of us aboard,of course we were surronded by boats at the time.you should be good next weekend there has been no big push of into the river yet.all three of 4yr old fish we caught were chromers
