Shakedown cruise...anchored up, remembered my 2 boxes of kwiks sitting on the table at home.
Luckily had a couple in packages on the boat.
Have the sardine filets prepped for tomorrow at least.
Boat floats, motors run....water 41.5.

One that got me was at the mouth of cowlitz in the middle of a hundred boats, with 200ft of anchor rope out. Good way to score some free 360's and spinners I guess.

The ArgoNav app has good depth and navigation aid points just like the paper chart you can buy.

Nice to see baitfish starting to thrive again after so many years of poor returns.

Still getting enough current before tide change to wiggle the plugs?
Six that didn't stick!!! Dang, tough to swallow.... pun intended. Another reason I don't like hard baits.
5 consecutive days with a fish prior to that as his consolation prize.
