The weather was against us, and the fish were not biting. The fish we caught were not in season, but we had fun anyway. The captain offered to reschedule, but we were headed home the next day. Maybe the weather will be in our favor the next time.

Captain did a great job entertaining us even though fish were not biting do to a previous cold front. He did find a place where fish were activity.
