First trip this year to the Bay. Decided to ignore the forecasted small craft advisory and take the 3 hour drive down. By 7am, I had bait and we were on our way. Left Slaughter inlet with only 1 foot seas in front of me until I hit the Anchorage where I was met with a strong northwest wind and seas 3-4 feet. Made it to the shoal where we set up to drift with clams and eels. First drift was way too fast, so set up for the second and began using my wind sock. We had two run offs before setting up for the next drift. Ended up with three over 28" and a half dozen less than limit. Also a few skates. As the seas started to calm down, we left for Slaughter around noon only to get hit again with winds in front of the inlet. All in all not bad day with Uncle "Screwball" and "chumming" Mike (boy, did I feel sorry for him, but wasn't coming in with the bite - sorry).
