I rolled out of the sack around 6am, then hit the bait shop with a cup o' joe. And was so surprised by how many people were pulling into the parking lot....IT'S THURSDAY!!!!! What the hell, I thought after watching one friend after another head for the boat ramp. I thought, I was the only one that didn't have a job today?
I was anchored up at 8:30am and fishin'. And they were CHEWIN'. Because by 10:15am I had my Speckled Trout limit (5), and Yellowmouth Trout limit (4). Size? All super nice fish...I had about 4-5 that were questionable, so I released them.
If you know me. You know this is all I live for. If you don't know me, you ask me questions like, "so, ya fishin for them sheepshead, Capt Dave?" It's one of those things that just bust my gut, each and every year. No one, ever asks me, "how's the Speckled Trout biting?" I find it so funny.
I started casting and letting my 3/8's oz. jig sink to the bottom. At first, it was bait stealers galore, because there wasn't much current. But within 30 minutes, the current started pouring over the spot and I was hooked up with one 20" Trout after another! It was wild, they would grab the Jig/shrimp on the fall. And swim toward the boat. These Trout were larger than the last spot. I released them of course and kept at it.
Where were you? Who knows....but I'm going with or without ya. Because, I live for days like this, weather like this, and FOG like this.
I talked to one fella who said, "I thought it was gonna get nice, and maybe warm....."
I said, "Ya kiddin me? This is perfect weather! This was a perfect so called winter day in J-ville. I love it!"
Don't believe me, that you should be booking your fishing charter with me. RIGHT NOW?
