Well, finally a nice day.
Too nice, I guess.
The fish only wanna bite when it's 25 knot winds, maybe raining, and cold as hell.
Had James and Marty aboard today. Good fisherman from up north in NJ & Del.
They shocked me because they were so early. When I pulled into the boat ramp parking lot they were there already! That's a freak thing. Not many of my charters go that way.
I'll skip all the dull details....but there wasn't diddly going on at the jetties. We attempted to float-rig fish, bottom fish, pitch slabs (jigging), then back to K.I.S.S bottom fishing, where by then 6 ounces would not hold bottom, but anchors DO!
I had to leave my anchor out there in the rocks. I made it almost 3-4 years without having to cut one off. But this time it wouldn't budge!
SO THERE GOES A $150 DOLLAR BILL!
THERE'S NOTHING LIKE GOING BACKWARDS, WHEN YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE GOING FORWARDS.
So we went back to the ramp to get a spare out of my truck. At least I'm smart enough to carry a spare.
By this time, we've caught 2 Toadfish & 8 Seabass! Yee haww!
Head up river and it was basically the same, a few dink Trout, a few dink Yellowmouth, fast dying current, and one keeper:
So we came back to the dock and I fed 4 dozen live shrimp to the birds and went home.
Yep, I felt like the Jaguar's owner.
Except, if he looses an anchor no biggy. For me loosing that kind of coin is a royal pain in the wallet.
And not winning on the fish, for these guys just had me drinking a few more PBR's when I get home.
The Jag's owner probably just buys a bigger boat after each Jag loss.....
Did ya see that thing??
Had footage of it in my last video.
NEXT UP: Monday at 7am sharp.
