The two days I fished, the ocean conditions were quite nice. Sometimes it would get pretty wavy, then other times it was like a big lake. Because I was fishing from a 14' aluminum boat, the latter was very appreciated.
Yeah, be lucky. Obviously this day happened to be super calm. I've been there when it was a little rougher; I just stayed closer in to the kelp, and stayed close to Neah Bay. This particular day, I put a lot of miles on the little 25hp!!
