This week had some windy days mixed in, but the fishing was well worth it. I ran several trips this week and we limited out on rockfish in short-order each morning. After catching our rockfish, we had pretty decent success bottom-fishing for croaker and spot.
The fishing was wide-open this week! We didn’t have to run far most days to catch rockfish on the troll. The highlight of the week was taking out Mike Ebersberger of Anglers and the D.U. “Duckettes.” These ladies were excited to catch fish and they were a blast to have onboard. It turns out, they can crank in fish as well as they can sell raffle tickets! Here are some pics from that day…
This week yielded good numbers of resident stripers (rockfish) in the 18 to 24 inch class with an occassional fish exceeding 30″. The fish were moving fast but once we found them, it was fast and furious action! We didn’t fish every day, but caught limits on the days we did. A few boats in the fleet also connected with some big, black drum.
Unfortunately, my camera broke so I don’t have any pics from this week.
We started off the season with Adam Funk and a great group of guys. The seas were a little sloppy but the bite was hot. Despite the bumpy weather, we caught early limits during opening weekend. The Hurrah fished every day the rest of the week and the fishing was good for the most part with some days being better than others. I’ve attached a few photos from the week.
