THERE ISN'T A FISH THAT SWIMS THAT CAPT.WAYNE CAN'T CATCH:thumbsup:Headed out on the Searcher II on sunday jan 24th with a 12 man charter that turned out to be a 11 person charter thanks to a last min cancelation.
So off we go at around 7ish, left the inlet and the seas where nothing like what they where calling for.
We go to our first and pretty much only spot, and right off the bat started to get fish. My first fish was landed and turned out to be a 7lb plus fish and already i had a good feeling about this trip.For the next hour or so we had a nice flurry of keepers and shorts coming over the rail. A small adjustment by the capt and we where going again grinding away at nice size fish.
Late that morning we had our shot up in the bow, a small area started to produce and i mean produce. Within about a half hour we had fish ranging from 9lbs to 13lbs coming over the rail in the net of course. Most of the these where caught on whiteleggers but one 10lb plus fish was caught on a shrimp. O the whiteleggers, getting those crabs for this trip well that is a hole story for another thread. But i think most of the fish where caught on the whiteleggers but other baits worked also but just not as well.
We easily had 9 fish over the 10lb mark and where very close to limiting out
Top fish of the day was 13lbs 10oz with a few more that where dam close.
Of course i had no camera for this trip but the mates did and a couple other guys did so i am waiting for the pics to get sent and then i wil post them
This was a day to remember, a one of a kind day, ALL BIG FISH ALL DAY, we had nothing working in our favor for this trip, the weather was calling for terrible conditions, the bait was hard to get, the reports from EVERYONE was terrible, the water temp was too cold, many of us thought it was gonna be a tuff one, and it was, it was tuff on the arms. Before this trip my personal best blackfish was 8lbs plus, after this trip i now have at least 3 over the 10lb mark, truely a trip to remember.
KUDOS to the capt and to the 2 mates for doing an outstanding job of putting us on Fish
