Nice day on the water

Not a great fishing day but a great boating day.
Ran over 40mph offshore.

Thank you,

    I've also heard "a bad day at work is better than a good day with the inlaws"



    @Photo Egg  that is some calm open water, I'm guessing that doesn't happen often?

    Wonderful.  I grew up in Muskegon and went fishing out there for 20 years.

    Awesome  pic. Great day on Lake Michigan as well. Had to climb the sand dune to get the view.
    People who spend their life in the South or Midwest have no clue how big the Great Lakes really are!

    So true. We only ran little over 30 miles offshore but we're able to hit 45mph at times.
    22' Whaler, not a norm.

    BTW- most travelers have no clue as to the average depth of any ocean body of water they are flying over.  I could spot 'em 10K feet and always win and I get that.  They just want to get from point A to point B.  
    As a side note- no concept of the size of the Pacific Ocean til they get strapped in for a greater than one lap of the 12 hour clock to their destination.  
    Louisville; "indeterminate Jim" here.  Rolling smoke in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!

    Nice @Photo Egg! We did have a  purty day, despite all the rain web we’ve been having lately.

    Not cooked on the Egg but hard to top fresh Red Snapper.
    Snapper "sapparito" for Wife.
    Parmigiano reggiaiano for me, 2 of each. Mine stuck a little to the pan.

    Fish sandwich for dinner tonight.

    Kinda curious what the water temp is there?  Beautiful view , but I see snow capped mountains.  Although Lake Michigan is about 70 degrees (near shore) , Lake Superior is only 48 degrees.
