    Anyone that can get out in that deserves the "Rough Water Pirate Award"...I've been out in some nasty waters ...... come home and put the video on only to have the water look like a calm water day. Videos are very deceiving when it comes to "perspective" .......what it really was like.

    at times I was waist deep then wave over my head ...waist deep ...over my head
    then when you get a target and stop - gotta fight to get the scoop in the right spot

    Rough is when you have to duck under the waves and hold your headphones on!

    Yeah, I don't do that anymore. Too hard on the body and equipment. I just wait till a calmer day.

    Yeah that's what I consider rough. When you are using the scoop in the hole to hang on.

    The times I've hunted in those conditions, I never found much... it would sink faster than I could get it out of the hole between waves.
