    Open Bay

    July 11, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We decided to stay in Roche Harbor for another day as the forecast predicted rain for the afternoon. Andy wanted to do some more fishing so we left for open Bay in the late morning. I took the boat out of the slip and also put it back in when we returned. We fished for about 4 hours but did not get one fish! It also started raining as predicted and I am so glad I had bought some rain gear before we left. Luckily the weather cleared back up in the evening and we had a nice chicken dinner on board.
    The real cool thing about the water here is that it not only is very deep (over 1,000 ft in some places) but where the currents converge between the islands, it creates eddies and the water looks like it was in a washing machine while just a few feet away it is totally calm. There are also plenty of logs and kelp one has to look out for floating in the water, and the most dangerous are the rocks that are hidden just beneath the water surface. The tides here can vary up to 10 feet between high and low tide!
