3/23 - ANOTHER BIRTHDAY GIRL

HAD A 4  PERSON CREW. AND ONE WAS CHELSEA.
THE ONLY WOMAN.
SO YA KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS....

-FIRST FISH
-BIGGEST FISH

HIT THE JETTIES AND BOTTOM FISHED. THE GOOD SIZED WHITING ARE INSANE OUT THERE.

CAUGHT AND KEPT ""55"".....YES 55, I CLEANED!



















AFTER THE WHITING FEST WE WENT UP IN THE  RIVER AND BOTTOM FISHED THE FIRST OF THE RISING TIDE.

AND OF COURSE, GUESS WHAT HAPPENED?
CHELSEA GOT HERE BIRTHDAY FISH!






































A BEAUTIFUL 30 POUND BLACK DRUM THAT WAS  CLEAN AS ALL HELL AND EVEN HAD A "COPPER" COLOR TO IT. 

SHE FOUGHT THE FISH FOR DAMN NEAR A HOUR IN 45 FEET OF WATER WITH RIPPING CURRENT ON A 2/0 MUSTAD HOOK AND 40 POUND LEADER. SAME RIG WE USED FOR WHITING.

WE KEPT THE DRUM BECAUSE IT WAS SUCH A CLEAN FISH AND IT WAS CUT AND FILLETED IN MINUTES WITH MY MAKITA AND FILLETZALL BLADE.

VIDEO COMING SOON

HER DAD CHRIS LOST A SMALLER DRUM TO A BROKE LEADER. AND HER BROTHER CAUGHT A KEEPER RIVER SEABASS ON A SMALL DEAD CRAB.



















I'VE BEEN GOING ALMOST EVERYDAY. BUT THIS DAY WAS SPECIAL AND NOT PERFECT WEATHER WISE. AND IT WAS JUST PERFECT ENOUGH THAT IT'S WORTH TALKING ABOUT.

I'VE BEEN OUT ON BLOWING COLD DAYS, RESCHEDULED BECAUSE OF RAINING DAYS. BUT THAT SPRING TIME FOR YA.
