Not particularly good weather so fish weren’t biting well at all.  However we landed far more fish than any of the other boats around us wherever we went (and we tried numerous areas).  Captain Rodney obviously knows where to fish & the type of plastics the fish like.  All in all, a very satisfying day as it was “out on the water” instead of “in the office”.
