Met Joey (Defiant1) and my father at Joey's this morning for a try at spades. We left from Gwynns Island ramp and headed out in the dark with light rain. We were the first boat at the light so it didn't take long to find a good spot. Not long after we got there the current dies and the wind blew us around away from the light so we reposistioned. After getting set back up I hooked up and quickly broke off a nice fish. Then things were dead for a for quite a while as we watched a few boats hook up and break off more fish then they put in the boat. One boat who was closer to the light had a preety good catch of smaller fish as we sat there with nothing yet. Finally Joey decided to turn off the radio to see if that would change our luck. Within 2 minutes he hooked up with a nice one that went about 8 pounds. Probably about an hour later he got another one in the boat about the same size and then I got one that was about the same size. Ended up being a nice day out there once the rain stopped but the fishing was slow.
Yup! And the sound of line peeling off your reel makes it all worth while. I thought he was headed back to the ocean but decided to tie our neighbors lines in a knot instead! Had a lot of fun out there, it's kind of cool when you get a good group out there like we had today. Had a boat on each side and shared a few laughs with them as well. All in all, a good day!
Nice work guys - we noticed your boat early in the day when we stopped to get bait for cobia. Are you happy with your Sea Hunt? I have the 23 Triton CC and have been extremely pleased with the boat and motor (225 4-stroke Yam).
