went over to the island sunday me my son and my nephew and his friend.went to the backside the wind was up and it was rollin so came back around to the front. started at at the quarry and fished down around avalon was just looking for something the boys could catch with them its not quality its quanity .man o man did we find the white fish and a little of everything else. sat on the third spot from abot 9am till 4 pm about a mile from avalon.fish never let up. seen the freelance sitting about 1/2 mile on the outside of us drifting for bonita . buzzed out there about 4:30 caught the bonita under the birds while cleaning the fish. cant say it was the smoothest ride back across the chanel got really nasty about 5 miles from newport the boys down on the bunk never woke up i was amazed as rough as it was . herd the coast guard giving sevral warning about vessels that where half sumerged and sevaral dingys that where adrift up the coast, but all in all the boys had a blast and all fish where chaught on 6lbs test and trout rods did loose quite a few fish to a seal that camped under the boat .was kinda fun though to see them try to real in the fish before our little friend could leave them with just the head.......Bob

Great getting the boys on fish...some happy looking kids.

Your boat looks like it has a pretty large cockpit, what are you fishing in?
I was just trying to imagine your crossing based on NOAA's forecast for Sunday.

Thank you for the report.
