11-29-14, Out of Buzz's

On Thanksgiving night, Capt. Brady Bounds sent an email that he was offering a Walk On trip for today. I thought about it for about 2 minutes and said what the heck, I have fished in the cold in the past, I can do it again. So I responded and I was the 1st one in. Incredibly, the next two were Capt. Mike and Capt. Dave. I know this was going to be a fun trip and it WAS!

We met up at Buzz's marina at 7 AM where it was CHILLY (@30 degrees). But...we were all dressed properly so off we went.

The 3 Captains!

Obligatory 1st fish picture...not big but fat!

We started slow and plucked a couple here and there....

That took a couple of hours. We found birds and plenty of boats but the bite was slow until we found some with no one around. Then...it was game on!

These fish all had sea lice...ocean run fish. They were well fed and fought much harder than your normal bay fish.

Most of the fish were caught in 40-50 feet ow water using heavier spoons and jigs, But we all used medium tackle including Capt. mike's old fiberglass St. Croix. What a bend show that rod gave!

Lots of trollers mixed in when we are among all the boats but some of the big boats were jigging as well.

I remember always fishing (been quite a few years) the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving but it was always a trolling trip. It's time for a new tradition....jigging up footballs!!

So....we continued to put a hurting on them all by our lonesome!

We had a few triples and even one quadruple. No...it was not quiet whn that was going on!

The loot!

And the take....

No doubt about it....this was a fun trip with some real experts. Good fishing. Good weather (well, kinda) Good friends!

And....Capt. Brady's number is on the cooler. Call him if you have a crew of 2, 3 or 4.....


Time to go fishin' again!

Having that crew together in one boat would have been entertaining enough....... and then you caught fish. Lots of high points for you in 2014, how are you going to top it next year?

BTW, the phone number on the cooler is incorrect. The correct number is 301-904-0471

You can be certain of that when you go out with folks that know what they are doing. I've been fortunate to meet some great guides who will take me to places I can't get to in my boat.

I was too lazy to clean them and gave mine to the Captains......as a matter of fact, I kept more fish in FL than I did here all year.

Looks like it was worth it to be out in that weather!


Together we'll fight the long defeat.

It definitely was...took me a while to get the fishing urge back and this was a nice reward.
