Beats the 8-foot-plus seas and 20 knot winds the remaining fleet fishing the Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic has endured the last couple of days.

Weighed a 137-pound yellowfin and a couple 30-ish wahoo last night. Scales close tonight at 5 pm and I know the teams will be glad to be back on terra firma for awhile.

We needed the rain, I just hope it’s not the beginning of the end like it was last year...the start of rain every day until September followed by 1 more burst in the form of a Cat 5.

Count me out.
That seems like an immensely miserable time.

Did more than the 24 boats head out later?

Sucks for saltwater fishing, but we were in the midst of a full on drought and needed the rain something FIERCE, so I'm not going to curse it just quite yet (until/unless it ends up darkening the waters all summer long and don't think we're there just quite yet).

For the past month I was hauling water to over 20 five-gallon buckets with holes drilled near the bottom to water sapling fruit trees and also filling up a couple of rubber water pans to give the wildlife a few convenient watering holes. Long as the rain lets up in the next week and we avoid any massive gully-washers, I'll actually be thanking the Big Guy above. :thumbup: :beer:

Official count was 25 but a couple stuck their bow out and came back. Weighed some impressive tuna, wahoo and dolphin this afternoon. Billfish releases still being verified. Heard of at least a couple big blue marlin that pulled the hooks.

It wasn't that bad yesterday at SM. Put it at a little before 9am and fished till 12:30. Probable could have stayed longer but needed to get back home. Landed around 15 reds and a half dozen trout.
