Sidney goes fishing

Water was looking nice so we loaded up the Red Sea boat and headed out for some action.  Morning bait was biting good.

Once the sun came up we headed out for the troll on the town.  Cat, Sidney and Brent joined me today.  This was Sidneys first time trolling so she was excited.

This is how we roll.  We focus and look for the bird piles.

Sidney first time trolling and getting some small action.

Then the screamer.  Huge marlin on for an hour before shaking the hook.  

We got some action and a few fish for our table this week.

Swell Coming Soon!

Buoys still were small this morning so we knew swell would be later this evening.  Found a nice spot to surf and got a few fun waves.

Jon Taba wanted to eat so he treated us to brunch.

Garlic chicken plate.  Bugga was ono!

Swell should arrive this evening and peak at 2 am. Sat.  Going to be solid!

Lost in Indo

Still going through our Indo surf photos taken from Anton.  Such nice backdrops.

One of my favorite spots to surf is Lances Right or Ht's.  Nice little barrels to be found.  Looking forward to going back there next year!

Wind or Glass?

Little boost on the south shores past few days but gotta hold on to your hats.  Swell already peaked so hurry and get some before it goes.  

Unlike sheet glass barrels of Indonesia.  Sure miss these waves.
