10/15 - Slower & Windier. RIP Jetty anchor # 103
Momma Heng broke the ice with the slow and steady technique today up on the bow of the boat.
Marc, twice while "vertical" jigging with a 1-1/2 oz. Glow jig hung into metal eating sharks, that smoked his jig........Yes, the Blacktips are still around out there and will eat a jig!
Then Marc hangs something else on the jig!
The fight was different this time.
W-T-H, is that?
Marc snagged a Turtle with a Vertical jig!
Just tired and a bit pissed off, it went back no worse for the wear.
Momma Heng, does it again! Thank goodness, because the action was quite slow.
Dad hung a whopper......a whopper 6' Nurse Shark that broke off at boat side.
And see where I was at the rocks? Well, I left my 5th anchor right there as of today. Yep, and that was my "spare". So that's two for me in 2015 . I guess I won't be anchoring up in the deep with big current for the next 5 days.
Only anchor I have left is a small 12 pounder that won't hold me in more than 20 feet of water.
