HAD ROB AND JOE ABOARD THE JETTYWOLF AGAIN.....another day that was mighty challenging. The south breeze was ''bucking'' the flooding tide, and running all our lines up under the boat, which was sooooo aggravating outside the jetties. (north jetty)
We fished all over the jetties.
-outside the north - calm
-outside the south - slop city, hold on and fish!!
-inside the north jetty - caught a NEW ANCHOR!! exactly the same as the kind I use.
A 18# reef & rock anchor, with chain and a bunch of anchor line (too small for my boat) FINALLY, after all the anchors I lost, I get PAY BACK, and get a freebie!
Caught lots of Ladyfish, and used them for the Bull Redfish. I had Pogies, but fresh CHUNKIN' baits were so much better, and after the wicked TIDE slowed, and it got easier for my guys to fish, we got a HALLOWEEN sight.
Joe was hooked up......Joe was battling another bull Red.......Then his line broke, under the boat.
I looked at his mono shock leader tied to his ''Capt Dave's Strong Arm rig'', that was gone and it was frayed big time.
I said, ''what ever that was had teeth!''........When off the side of the boat pops up his Bull Red!
IT WAS ONLY A H-E-A-D, OF A BULL REDFISH!
Two Sharks circled it....then one ate a 10 pound Redfish head whole....and it was gone!
BTW THE GUYS DID CATCH SOME BULL REDS THAT WEREN'T EATEN!
HERE'S A FEW.
IF YOU MISSED IT, HERE'S ONE EATEN IN THE RIVER BY A BIG SHARK A FEW WEEKS AGO.
AND HERE'S A NICE ONE A ''FISHIN GAL'' CAUGHT,
THAT I FORGOT TO POST.
(on a 20 kt wind boat waked every 2 seconds, Saturday!)
I'M REALLY WANTING TO GET BACK TO FLOAT-RIG FISHING,
|FISHING THE ''FLOAT-RIG'', IT TOO CATCHES SHEEPSHEAD|
