    Well, I came down to fish 2 days, and I ended up staying two days, but only got about 2 hours of actual fishing in.

    Friday night, I spent hours trying to catch bait. Set the gillnet directly across from DB ramp, and met Cameron Krazie. He said he thought he saw my gill net moving. When he shined the light back over there it was still. Well, I went to check on in after a while, and it was really bunched up. Felt really heavy, and found a 50lb blue in it!

    Finally ended up fishing just after midnight, and me and my partner boated a 33.5 and 34.5 within about 20 minutes. Had to quit fishing around 2am due to alot of bs I won't go into. Didn't get back out until 6pm Saturday evening, and didn't make it past City Point after launching from Hopewell, when my boat decided to crap out on me. Some great guys came and got me and towed me all the way back to the ramp.

    Gotta figure out why my boat doesn't like me. Once I do, hopefully I can finally get it "on" again. Last two trips = two breakdowns. Frustrating, costly, but it won't stop me.
