If I didn't see this thingtoday, I would not believe it. We had a call of the sighting so we had to go see for ourselves.

Capo,

You guys should carry cameras at all times. I bet over-time you get to see it all!!

Had a Camera, couldn't get a clear picture of it. Once people see a USCG boat either with a rifle or a camera out they start to hang out like flies.

You would be suprised on the calls we get on people scared to come through the inlet. honest 4-5. SO You probably did hit a 6-7. I read the reports and it's funny because 1/2 of the people will say 2 footers the other half say 8 footers



Most people have NO clue how bad that inlet is at times

That's why I try never to use #'s. Everyone has the internet they can check the weather report and see for themselves.

I think people are talking "chit" when I read statements that they were out in 10-15ft seas by choice with 25 + mph winds and then saying that there boat ate it up.

Anyway, if I recall yesterdays report for the afternoon was in fact 4-6. The morning was worse. Friday was real bad.
