60s?

Sunny sky and low 80s today.  But, a cold front is coming through and we will see mid 60s over the weekend and low 60s Monday….with a chance for rain by Monday.  70s and back into the 80s by next weekend with chances for rain scattered throughout the week.

Still running two units at the equivalent of one more or less.  Some time during the day, it will be less than one unit, but also some time during the day it will be more.  The past couple days they have cranked it up around 2:00 p.m. to a healthy two units or even a low three.  Today is supposed to just be a low one all day.  Don’t know yet what the weekend will bring.

a ton of fish, but one of the ones she brought to the boat she thought weighed a ton. It gave her a good 15 minute fight!  Best pattern was the chartreuse egg.

Thursday, Gina and Jim were on the water for a half day.  Pretty good day for them on
