One very rough Sunday

The weather Gods have not been kind to us this year. There has been two kinds of weather, rain with wind or sun with more wind. This day was sun with more wind. 
OK enough whining, we still went fishing.
As I said it was windy so jigging was on tap for the day.
Now typically when the weather acts up the fish like to bite, after all, the surging water just brings more food to them. Today was that way, the fishing was good, but a lot of work for the skipper, me.
When bottom fishing it is important that you have a good fish finder and transducer. Reading the bottom is everything with this type of fishing.
I use a Garmin 4010 GPSMAPS with a 2kw transducer, I'll post a photo later. 
We fished as long as we could until the wind and wave became unbearable. At one point we were taking waves over the transom and engine while trying to hold a position long enough to drop to the bottom.
We caught lots of fish and lots of species of fish so no complaining. No one is listening anyway. 
OK enough chatter on with the photos.

Even though the weather wasn't cooperating, it still looks like you had a nice mixed bag of fish. That's a successful outing in my book. Good times!
