New to the boating community, this was only our 4th voyage out on the Swell Life. We would’ve typically waiting for a glassy morning to jump aboard "The Swell Life" and go fishing but with gusting winds for days lifting we went out of our comfort zone. Light winds and a few bumps in the ocean from an incoming swell, we head out… not too far from shore… with our fishing gear – Penn fishing poles and squid bait.
