Man, these Dawg Sharks are horrible. Another 10-1 DTB ratio - UGGGGHHHHH. Today we did a private charter organized by Mr. Byrd Holloway for a bachelor party for a total of 8 anglers. This was our 22nd extreme long range deep drop adventure of the 2007 campaign. Mr. T.J. Reiber of Northern Virginia served as 1st Mate today. Capt. Mark "The Tilefish Slayer" Wray served as co-captain.

The crew fought though the same ol' hideous Spiny Dawg Sharks, disgusting, slimy Conger Eels, and undersized Black Sea Bass on wreck after wreck. Something has to be done about these Dawg Sharks, they are completely out of control. Hopefully the VMRC will open it all the way back up for the watermen who could use a shot in the arm.

We struggled to catch 58 Blueline Tilefish, 68 corpulent Black Sea Bass, and a surprising 15 Winter Runner Bluefish. We only had 1 BLT Weight Citation (see below) and our biggest BSB was only 3 pounds 3 ounces. The Dawg Sharks provide plenty of "pullage", but man does it get frustrating.

Of particular note today was one of the fetal positions who got his stuff together and got back up, fished, drank a beer, and talked smack - very rare. We had a couple of fence sitters and I think 5 more knots of wind might have just touched off a good old fashioned Horkfest.
