Went to the office this morning with all intentions of working all day. Well........anyone in the mortgage banking business (or in any business dealing with real estate) will tell you how slooooooooow business is right now. By around 1:00 I couldn't take it anymore. I shut down the computer and headed to the South River. I thought that I had a bummer of a day at work, but not as bad as this guy who ran this rig aground about a week ago in Selby Bay. Looks like it may be there for a while. ...............................



I couldn't help but laugh as I approached my lighthouse. Just how much equipment does it take to change a light bulb?..................................



Ran north to Dollys and found spot in 18 feet of water. The tide was really ripping so I decided to just keep catching spot to fill the livewell for tomorrow. Lately, it seems, if you put a spot over in a hard running tide, the blues will surely get them. Talked to fellow Tfer Rem1224 (Ralph). Thanks for the left over spot Ralph. I promise that I'll put them to good use tomorrow. The spot bite died as the incoming tide was rolling seriously hard. I decided to run to Hacketts to see if the spot would cooperate there. I was catching a spot on almost every cast when all of a sudden the spot bite died. I happened to look back at the fish finder and I saw why.......................................



I grabbed a light rod with a white bucktail and began to bail small 12 inch blues with almost every cast. The blues would come in waves. Tthe finder would go almost blank and then light back up again....................................



I caught probably 20 blues (all around 12 inches) when I hooked up a bigger fish. The 24 inch rock gave a real good fight in the ripping tide on light tackle. That was the only rock I caught before I pulled anchor around 5:00 and headed in. Beautiful October afternoon on the water.....................................Mark

Nice report Mark. The fish coming in waves while you are anchored is cool. I have had this happen a bunch this year. You watch the meter and adrenaline starts to pump when it lights up. It does make it exciting.
