    Im better now

    So it wasnt much, but I scored waist to chest, consistent conditions yesterday and was able to pull out the full bag of tricks on the 5'8 sharpeye disco. Much needed shortboarding, thurster day. snaps, hacks, reverses.... not a barrel in sight, but it was for sure enough to get my stoke on. Swell is around all weekend too. hitting it again in a few hours when the tide cooperates. Burgers and Brew fest first.

    Ahhh... sweet relief. it was no hurricane swell, but like I said in my "worried"? post, although 3-5 more feet of swell would have been ideal, all a brother wants is enough juice to get the shortboard out and throw some turns. damn@! been sick of fishing... with my rod or my quad. ya know?

    P.S. If there is ever a sting ray fishing comp, I would win hands down. Last week, Me and my buddy caught 11 sting rays in 30 minutes... i mean, seriously???? Pain in the arse to get that hook back too. &^%$ers are mean!

    I've heard this a lot and tried it after a drunken night of gigging. I ended up throwing the pan away. It was a disgusting slimy mess.

    Please elaborate.

    Slice off the wings. Skin them. Bread and fry. Taste just like scallop. Only tried it with skate. I'm not sure what kind of rays your catching down there

    Yeah, they serve it as scallops at te all you can eat Chinese buffet in bluffton. Like he said, clip the wings and cookie cut the meat. My Vietnamese investor told me that too

    The "sea scallops" that are going to be on your plate at most restaurants are actually punched skate.

    Start making your excuses for why you can't do what your supposed to be doing on Mon and especially Tues.

    Is there a phantom swell rolling in Mon or Tues that is off my radar? Went out again today and it was fun, but its looking like minimal leftovers tomorrow and back to lake status monday.
