    Thumbs up 7/24 thru 7/26 report

    The set up was the same on every trip as follows:
    5 boards per side running bandits with 50' leads from 155 to 130 total back. Colors where green, blue and purple all with chrome base.
    1 or two dipsys on each side 1 setting back 75 and 3 setting back 100 with worm burners or double willow harnesses colors where blue and purple with chrome backs.
    speed was 2.3 to 3.0
    Everything we ran caught fish on every trip.

    Friday morning we had a crew from nevada and missouri we fished the area from the weather buoy to 4 miles south and had their limits plus two reeling in lines by 11 am it was a slow start this morning but picked up nice for us.

    Sunday morning we launched at 5:30 with an anniversary trip trying to beat the wind that was coming today. We headed to the buoy and had 13 fish in 45 minutes. They chose to head back in as the waves where building and starting to feel it. Very good bite this morning.

    I've heard references to the weather buoy and checked my map and couldn't find it. Can you tell me where it is and approximately what the nearest point of reference would be. Thanks.
