thought id dust off the thread , been a while

end of November really heated up , lots of feeders from 3-8 lbs through-out the sound , easy limits ,
spent the week there for New Years , fishin was excellent , Cathy n I were into 6-10 fish on most days , much larger now too ,
had a couple in the high teens , most 6-12 lbs , they grow so fast , hot spots were Brady's , Flemming , Ellis Pt
no need for bait , all on small spoons , greens , glows were all we pulled , think we trolled the same 2 spoons all week ,
Was wondering what ever happened to ya ... no pics for awhile lol . But, looks like your at it again good to sea !
Great to see your pics and hear whats happening up there ...Thanks !
Hope you have a fishy and safe 2018 !
Well the plan for the Easter Weekend was to go prawning and stay on the boat two nights. Left PA Friday and set traps (8) just over the line at 10am pulled them at 5. Nothing. Decided to keep the traps on board and set Saturday morning in an area that we did well in last year (680). Traps were dropped by 7:30 and then tucked in behind Dodd island for breakfast. For the rest of the morning trolled two rods at various depths with spoon and hoochies. 1 hit but it didn't stick. Listened to the Wx reports for Saturday Night and Sunday. Winds building to Gale force Sunday with 2m seas. Not my idea of fun. Pulled the traps. 148. (No Jumbos, a few large (~20) and the rest were mediums.) Decided that we didn't want to chance another set knowing that we would have to pull late in the afternoon and then make a crossing of Imperial Eagle Channel to go back to our overnight spot. Headed back to PA with a quick stop in a Haggard Cove. Will try to do better this coming weekend.
