Old Reliable
Yesterday took the boat out to run the last bit of water out of the tank. Low tide and 98 degrees with flat water. Nothing was biting but I couldn't get off the water with out feeling the tug of the line. I knew 1 fish who's never tired of taking a hook and that's the Croaker AKA Old Reliable. I personally don't like them but my neighbors do.
Croakers hit shrimp, squid, cut ,bait the bigger the size the better the fight.

AlgernonThere it is! I'll be trying my luck in this heat next weekend and the weekends after! Do you typically see a slow down in the heat of the summer?

williamNope if any thing you can count on them. If you can hit a deep hole it will produce bigger ones. And if you like spots . the heat has made them show up earlier

Large Mouth Bass #200
Thanks to Canuck I started logging my catches this year. This is LMB #200 on board my boat for 2017. She dropped by "My Office" for a quick photo op early this morning. Only a few have been larger and a lot have been smaller but all have been welcome. The ever trusty Whopper Plopper was skunked today although whacked hard a couple of times that only resulted in long distance releases. This heavy fattie was caught right on the bank with an dark orange flecked Senko. On hot mornings nice size bass hang right on the bank waiting for treats to drop off foliage. Senko barely got wet before setting the hook. Another great morning on the water.

The rapala strikes again
Have to give credit to the shad scented spray I shot on the rapala for enticing a catfish to bite.
I'll take whatever is biting as long as I don't get skunked!!

Hello mamas and papas
A true sign that the sheepshead are about to bite are the small ones come in 1st. Then the adults slam you and if you can find a hole next to a bridge pilone you will have consist hits small and big. This one hit well I'm always one to share. The small black mussels you see growing or connected to structure. I'll post what the bait looks like and how to rig it later. Not paying attention this beauty almost snatched the pole out my hand.

Waiting on the Mamas and Papas
Fishing yesterday in Nags head the NC Crew and the rest of the fishermen had to wait out the bad weather from 6am -9:30am before clearer skies. After the rain small sheepshead were hitting. But when fishing structures for sheepshead sand flees and fiddler crabs which are hard to find work best.
(Illegal to harvest them in Va.) So we waited on the momma and papas.

Not a total skunk
Even in a foreign country it's hard for a Capt. to bring charters back with out a single catch. This Capt. was no different. So he spent the last hour bottom fishing for snapper. Knowing me I understood the Law of fishing some times you do and some times you don't catch. So I was game to catch what ever. So while others pouted I grabbed a pole and starting catching. I was catching 3-4 lbs yellow tail snappers. On the way back to the dock I explained the shirt I had on its mission and handed out Stackfish Crew Member cards. I was in the DR from 7/8/17 -7/15/17

Sunday evening tradition
Over the past few years my wife and I have made a Sunday evening tradition of bass fishing then grabbing a brew or two straight after. Always feels good to sit and relax and talk about the fish we catch, or most often didn't catch. Won't trade those Sunday evenings for the world.

Daily Lunker
After returning from the Salt Marsh Trail I launched #bos-mon on my local lake and soon boated this one, her slightly smaller sister and two Chain Pickerel, all on the same lure. The irony is I was after Trout using one of my favorite Trout lures, a Blue Fox Super Vibrax Silver size 5 #bfsvs5 At least now I know that it works on a variety of fish.

Musical Mackerel
Out on the Salt Marsh Trail to celebrate the completion of 24,000 kms of Trans-Canada walking trails. They had a bagpiper, cake and local politicians speaking about it. I brought along my Mackerel rig for when the speeches got boring. (Which was right after they started). Even though the tide was falling, this frisky Mackerel hit the lure and put up a good fight to wash off the Skunk. Lucky for him he wasn't big enough to feed everyone so I threw him back. I could have got a better photo but for the fact that I don't have a third arm and I was balancing on rocks beside a roaring ebb tide current.

CanuckThe Tide change here is around 4 feet. It was ripping out through a narrow cut under a bridge that forms part of the trail. Just to the left of the picture was a 9 or 10 knot current.
