What a day fishing the DOF. After the shotgun start at low tide, one boat hit bottom on the channel edge and wound up on the sand. The inlet on out had 0.1 mile or less fog for 12 miles. When I pulled up to where I was going to fish, there were about 100 boats already there. At least 2 other tournys going on. We gave it our best shot anyway and found there were fish there and biting at a slow but steady pick. Drift <.5 knots all day. Afternoon, the fish we started pulling were bigger and more frequent. On one short drift we caught or mainly dropped at least 10 fish over .05 mile. Something to work on for next year. At 2 pm, Barner Outdoors pulled in a 6.4# fish that went into the livewell. we left the fish biting at 3 pm. Total keepers -- 20. Back at the weigh in we decided to put the 6.4 into the 5 heaviest category. We held first place with 22.8# until 4:55pm, then 2nd until 5:10 , then third until 5:20 when the second to last bucket of fish came in at 23.2#. Our crew had a blast and hope to be back in it next year.
PS. we were surprized to see a large school of peanut dolphin swim under the boat. So much so that we stood there an just looked at them. No way, wait a minute Holy carp!!! If you get a chance, toss a bucktail at the pot markers when you drift past.
