8-13-15, way up the bay!

This fishing trip was in honor of Steve Brocker who retired from Western Envelope after many years of service. He recently moved to North Carolina from Wisconsin.

To say he was ready to go was an understatement but we needed to loosen him up.....and THAT we did!!

We stayed at the Chesapeake Beach Hotel and Spa which have great accommodations and ate at the Rod 'n Reel restaurant which was outstanding.

The view from my room was nice....

....and we were sure to get a good night's rest before our 6:00 am departure.

True to form, the Deale sunrise was spectacular!

We were in our way.....

....a LONG way!

If you recognize those landmarks, you know we were a long way from Deale. And we kept on going way past Love Pt.!

Today we fished on the Miss Susie owned and operated by Capt. Greg Buckner but he is down at VA Beach with Capt. Lee Tippett fishing for Cobia. So.....we had Capts. Tadd and Andrew, both who are outstanding fishermen and great skippers.

Our crew was: Bob Morgan, Kurt Ruppel, Steve Brocker,  Maynard Benjamin, Lonnie Robinson and me. Kurt had not caught a fish in 50+ years!!

This was our arsenal....very nice equipment!

Generally, the fishing was a bit slow....we did better than some of the other boats that we checked in with but we did OK. We had plenty of action to keep us in the game! And Kurt got his fish!!

This was interesting....a stainless steel bow rail that Lonnie managed to bring up!

Weather was incredible, seas were calm and the company was great!

I'm surprised Greg isn't down at Virgina Beach.  I know Lee is.

Looks like a fun day.

We fished with Greg over 4th of July and probably caught 200 beautiful Perch.  We had 16 folks with most of them under 10.  Decided not to run up to the bridge for Rock with all those kids on the boat.  Greg always puts you on fish.

He is.....Capts. Tadd and Andrew ran the boat.

Greg emailed me and they caught some nice big cobia over the last few days.

Need to go do that.....

Re: 8-13-15, way up the bay!

Excuse me George......we stayed up late the night  before discussing business problems and then while on the boat we spent a lot of time working to make sure that we could solve all the problems that we discussed the night before.  tongue A lot of work. And....we had to eat lunch somewhere!

Re: 8-13-15, way up the bay!

I heard first hand what the business was the night before, and I saw it being taken care of on the boat. Whatever you say Ernie, I'll swear to it.
What a great bunch of guys, I want to thank you again for the invite. It was a fine day on the Bay.
