I got to the launch 3am and was in the water by 4am - it was the perfect night - I am sure you heard of the perfect storm well this was the perfect night

light wind around 5-7 sometimes a little less, the bay was letting out and I was sailing with the out going tide

There was a full moon and the bay was like a lake and the moon was shining very bright

I had 2 rods with me and was testing some Hogy Lures to see how they worked. I had one rod in the holder for trolling a tube n worm type lure and I had the second rod in my hands working some type water plugs

I had battery operated nav lights on the boat including a rear light. I packed breakfast and sailed up to Great Kills, NY form New Jersey

It was was very exciting, there was no waves and also not other boats

It took me a couple of hours to go th 5 or 6 miles up the Great Kills from my Jersey launch point south of Perth Amboy from the attached map

Hi YAKMAN, congrats on your night trip. Got any pictures and did you catch anything?!
Did you ever get to do your bay crossing that you attempted to do a while ago but got turned back by bad weather? I was the guy that crossed to Catalina from Marina Del Rey and came across your plan to cross the bay and noted how our preparation and execution of the trip was very similar
just I got lucky with the weather!
