12/12 - where oh where, were you today.....
We were run outa the Jetties by all the damned Bluefish eating all our live shrimp (precious commodity) Then after catching a few small dink trout we ran up river and tried there. Fished a super Trout spot, but they weren't home.
Got rid of the float-rigs and went to the Jig-n-shrimp comer bo meal and caught Trout then, but all were small. Got a 4 pound Sheepshead off the spot and a 15" Flounder.
ALSO, TWO FRESHWATER CHANNEL CATFISH!!! now that's 4 Channel Cats that my customers have caught in that area since October. Hmmmmm, kinda weird.
Made a move and switched to my bait saving "slab spoons" with FISHBITES added and caught small yellowmouth Trout.
Ran back to White shell area and had a guy in a old T-Craft center console boat which looked to be in great shape, and when I asked him, "Is that a old T-Craft?" He replied, "You're within casting distance" (????) I said back to him "I just came by to ask you about your boat, thats all."
Damn huffy ass weekenders!!! Some people need to chill out. But we laughed and laughed as he thought I was gonna park on top of him.......which I don't do. But plenty of people do it to me, and never say BOO.
And at White shell we busted the larger yellowmouth Trout pretty good, dropping high numbers into the fish box using Slab spoons and our last dozen or so live shrimp on the float-rig. And also had a few Mangrove Snappers too.
So we made a good finish of the day. Whewwwww.....and it was a strange one at that.
One of two Freshwater Channel Cats from up river.....
WHO EVER LOST THEIR BOAT........I FOUND IT JAMMED IN THE NORTH JETTY ROCKS. LOOKS LIKE ITS STILL FLOATING...........MAY NEED A NEW JETTY ANCHOR,
