Weekend Recap--to Dun Cove in search of the elusive 28" striped bass

This weekend we headed out to take another crack at catching a trophy bass. It was chilly! Early on we got a bite, but he was too little. We spent pretty much all day Saturday with line in the water, but it wasn't meant to be. Late in the afternoon we started the 12 nm trek to an anchorage for the evening, just in time for the winds to come up to 20-25 kts out of the east with solid 3-4' seas. Slamming was not all that fun, and it got worst when we had to take the seas on the beam. I don't like rolling the home around! We finally tucked into Dun Cove with four other boats and enjoyed a late dinner and movie. Sunday we had a nice sail home and fished for a little bit. An early return gave us plenty of time to rinse all the salt off, enjoy some land fun on the bikes, and celebrate Cinco de Mayo with lots of food and too many drinks!
