End of 2020 recap..

2020 the year that nothing happened. The Governor shut down all operations on March 15th and re-opened my fishing season May 15th.
Managed one good catfish trip in March

So no crappie trips except one for the family.

Good news is I am retired and all those crappie trips I have had to turn down for the last 28 years can be filled. I have added Wed, Thurs, and Friday to available dates for crappie trips. No Monday or Tuesday trips since even retired guys need a weekend.

Shad was a no go this year and 2021 I am booked up from last year. If a trip cancels I will post it up. Shad is a blast on light tackle.

So 2020 I did some new trips that I have not done in 26 years. Main river Bubba Trips in my big Mako for LGMouth. Only during the week would I attempt these trips. The ones in 2020 went well and big fish where caught. So again, this year I start In May and fish well into June for LGMouth run and gun style.

June starts my snakehead season and it was a good season indeed.

At the beginning of Sept I moved to a swamps of Northern Neck VA.
We caught some really nice gator trout and some big LGMouth.  A few keeper reds and some mean bowfin. A few snakeheads as well. All trips are by invitation only in this incredible fishery.

Late October it was back to Monster Catfish.

2021 is booking up fast by the way…
