Arrived mid day Friday and fished about two hours before dark. Camera lens jammed up so no pics.. sorry. The food pics alone would have had your monitor covered in drool. I will do my best to mentally paint the pictures.
It was cold and the wind cut thru you like an ice covered filet knife. I cut bait on the cooler rack of my truck and had to ply the cut bait off the cooler as it froze. My hands where so numb that a sharp tap would have busted them into shards of human flesh. Hmm.. I will tone it down a bit.
Got two hours of surf time before we checked into our hotel. Walked the one block down the road to Bill's and ate and drank like I was King of the Island. A dozen salty oysters and some stuffed shrimp. Two martini's followed by a B&B sniffer darn near filled with aperitif. I do not remember any cold or the walk back to the room.
Day two we got 6 hours of surf time and got only one hit, with no hookups. However we did break for Woody's Barb B Que and boy was that good.. Food truck style dining is everywhere on the Island. Back to Bill's for martini and dinner. Could not even finish dinner from being so full from Woody's. Martini's still great. Walked back to room "I think"
Day three got two hours of Surf Time and packed up to head home. Stopped at Farmers Wife for Oyster Poor Boy and Buckeyes.
I really like Chincoteague better than Assateague and will next year buy an OSV pass to capitalize on the fishing available.
The food description was worthy of the report!
I miss going to the Island. It was an annual spring flounder trip for a bunch of us from work. Always stayed at Seatag Lodge condos and had at least two dinners at Ray's Shanty. Steamers was good with oysters, clams, crabs and legs on the buffet. Every meal was followed by a stop at the Island Creamery for a 3 scoop sundae. We even caught a few flounder, but who cared
Sounds like the martini's warmed you up. Good post - glad there's no pix, or I'd have to go to the market for oysters & vodka
