Happy Sunday all! We had a beautiful day on DelMarVa with sunny skies and warmer than normal temperatures all around. There was a bit of a breeze periodically this afternoon, but overall it was very nice. Nice enough for me to get on the golf course for a few hours and nice enough for some anglers to get out on the water.
Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star emailed today and the Subject line read…..”Saucy!!” I was pretty sure that if he had gone today it was a rough one, but it seemed well worth it.
Hi Scott, Saturday evening’s gale winds built a heck of a sea from the SE. Around 10:30 it switched NW and started knocking it down.
Anchored in 26 knots NW. Wind fell out bit by bit and finally to 12 knots when we pulled anchor. By the time I was 15 miles off coming home – gorgeous.
Lots of sea bass limits.
Some bluefish limits too.
Green-eyed spiny dogfish devils left us alone for the most part – a few. The dreaded mal-de-mer, however, struck some with a vengeance. Bonine chewables Baby! Once had a physician give his 60 pound son five Dramamine in one day. Sue Foster always took two & two more about 9:30 if it was rough.
Will be scheduling more trips into December. Have a few more on the book in November.
Dave Confair of Secretary, MD had our sea bass pool winner today at 18.5 inches.
Also pictured are Damion Tull of Church Creek, MD – Mike Hepburn, Lucas Cox, Scott Luedtke, & Dylan Treff of Pasadena, MD – and John Confair of Secretary, MD.
I saw my young friend Grayson Wooldridge at church this morning with his mom where they told me Grayson was going to take advantage of the nice weather and do some rockfishing with his dad today. I made sure to tell “G” that if they caught to send me some pics so I was happy to get an email from his dad John this afternoon. John put Grayson and his buddy Cullen Campbell on some healthy rockfish while trolling single hook umbrella rigs around the route 90 bridge. All of the fish were released.
