Well three days of wind, but Mondays looks like you can fish. A few boats got out Friday morning before the blow and all caught there limits. They ran SW up to the Rockline and ran the same program as all year.
The fishing has not changed at all. You can still fish East off the White Stake in 60ft of water, you can run South to the rockilne in 60ft of water, or you can run West to the rockline in 60ft of water. Same program in all three spots, dipsys back 130 on a 3setting, riggers down around 40ft range, some guys are pulling broads and running jet divers, and bodybaits back 150ft and leadcore 7 to 10 colour is also working.
