Rough Seas but fishing good

Trip Info

Summary

Weather forecast called for 2 ft seas in the afternoon and 1 ft in the morning.  We were lucky to get live bait from the bait guys who sit at the rocks. We headed to the snapper honey hole.  Everyone was competing on who had the biggest and best fish until Bruce landed the big snapper.  Everyone wanted to catch the big one.  A second snapper was caught as well as 4 ambereens.  Within minutes the skies darkened and the seas kicked up.  We trolled to wait for the weather to calm and caught 2 nice kingfish.  Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate and we ended up braving 6-8 ft. seas back to the dock.  Everyone had a great time even though the weather turned nasty.  I wonder when the weather forecasters are going to get the weather predictions right!!
