Surfs up
 
I figured something was up when I see several pickups go by on the way to westport on 195 full of boards...

Got to the mouth and knees started to knock, quite a sight, nothing but white water...

Slid through to the right between the breakers, hairy ride!

That beach at Little Compton was packed with cars and surfers. Not something I see very often, cool seeing them go out of sight only to appear again on top of a curl.... Youth :-)

Westport is no joke when the rollers are in and an outgoing tide .. I am always worried about the Ride back in Sakonnet point stacks up also not a lot of experience in a big tight following sea

Any fish?

I've fished the knubble at the mouth of the river during big surf and it is very entertaining ( and scary) to watch boaters come out of the calm water of the river, then see them hesitate before trying to gun it through the swells. And once through, realizing they dont want to be out there, and make the turn to come back in.:eek5:

PS ....I have done that very same thing at times.

Milo and I headed out of there one snotty morning, flag at the dock had a stiffy, but so did we...intel said fish were stacked not far from the mouth so we were stubborn not to take warning. This was in my 13' dory, with not many horses behind us....As we made our way past the final bend and could see the ocean pulverizing the shoreline along HN beach we exchanged a few words of courage (which sometimes equates to stupidity), turned the throttle full speed and tried to push our way through...:hs:.....with not enough strength in my johnson, we were getting tossed and turned and not making any headway, basically getting turned sideways with the potential of getting dunked,...still not sure how, but we ended up zigging and zagging just enough to catch the right wave interval to quickly turn the boat around. Although turned around, it was still a task to get back in the river...with the river still ebbing, the draw of the ocean was pulling while the huge rollers were pushing...as many of you know, we were kind of stuck for a moment...even at full throttle, we weren't moving much...a combination of catching the right rolller and zigging in the right direction, we were allowed to slowly get back in.

Definitely gave me much more respect than I ever had for that passageway. The power of the ocean is unquestionably NO JOKE and deserves all the respect one can muster.

Nothing worse than not having enough strength in your Johnson.. sorry couldn't help it.. I think any one who has been on the water a long time has had one of these incidents...experience and wisdom are a wonderful thing..
