Well where do I start........

As most of you know I just went through a major operation and to say the least this was the last thing on my mind 3 weeks ago. Now with that being said I was invited to spend the day with The Grim Reaper himself today. Well needless to say with the title of this thread you can see that IT WAS WELL WORTH IT.

Left here around 6:00 am this morning loaded up to go get some weakies. Knowing we had a good tide and according to the weatherman conditions should be right so we left out with a possative outlook. We arrived to the location we predesignated as the spot to be only to get rewarded with a skunk after a few hours of hard effort. This is when Grim decided we need to hit another "SPOT" and see what is going on but again we had about the same results.

The conditions where not the best the water was MUD the winds where howling but we decided that we would go get something to eat and give it another hard effort. Well man am I glad we did. after a few more hours with only a herring to show things heated up real quick in a real good way. Grim hooks up to our first fish of the day and lands it. I start saying to myself this is great things are begining to look up when he looks at me and says yup I have the hole and proceded on his next cast within 2 minutes of the bait hitting the water to hook up again and again plays the fish perfectly and lands it. Me know starting to mumble a few choice things under my breath at him as he looks at me and says look it is done like this cast his line out and in under 2 minutes again is fighting another nice weakfish. Now I am beside myself we are fishing the same way with identical set ups rigs and in the same area but I am not getting nothing...... :confused:

About 15 minutes go by and Grim says I think the moved I am going to try and find them well not 5 minutes after he walks away I hook my first fish getting ready for the fun to begin and the hook pulls... :mad: (I forgot to check the drag to make sure it was set OOOOOPPPPPSSSSS)......Anyway I let Grim know I just hooked one while he was scouting and I was going to hang tight. Well finally after about another 30 minute wait it happened I hooked, fought and landed MY FIRST TIDERUNNER......YYAAHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOO. :D

After that the bite seemed to slow to almost nothing but we did get a few nice parting gifts in the way of a estimated 4 to 5 lb tog(Grim again) :cool: and a 26 inch slot striper (that was me)
That rounded out our day. We estimated the 4 weakies to be between 6 and 9 lbs with the 2 in this pic beings about twins estimated at 8 to 9 lbs each along with Grims tog and my striper.....

Thanks again Grim for a great day and hopefully we will get together again soon and do it again...

P.S. As a side note this was my first endurance test since the Heart Surgery and I can say this MAN I HAVE NEVER FELT BETTER...... :D

After further review. Upon going to clean the fish last night I realized I did not have a fillet knife here so had to wait until the local tackle shop opened up in the am. Well I decided to take the weakie with me and get it weighed. Upon weighing the fish I found out it was actually 10.15 lbs so The tool a pic to hang the I got my knife and got out of there. Thanks again to all for the kind words.

Kev,
I am limited to weekends right now but give me a call whenever you want. Talk to you all soon
