It was a frustrating day. And I know we marked not just bait but fish too. They must have just had lockjaw. Maybe it ain't over but I'm not too keen on running to NC for 2 fish. Yesterday only 1/2 of my crew had NC licenses anyway. I think NC are being greedy A-holes for no receprocity agreements with VA and no boat licenses.

Sounds like we had identical days I was the second boat out of OC and broke ice for 100 yds or so went to Currituk saw plenty of porpoise, whale and one big skunk that I couldn't get out of the boat all day. Now it is time for boat and trailer maintenance and a couple of deep drop trips with Captain Jim.

Appreciate you folks playing ice breaker for those of us who got out a little later in the morning. All we had were small bergs and growlers...:52:

Had the same luck as about everyone - NADA. Did hear of a few snagged menhaden and also heard they're good smoked !:chef:

Guess the fish are in the Fed Zone until it warms up a little. Last 3 trips we've been picking the wrong days and the wrong spots. :(( Oh well...

Fished yesterday{Sat.}out of rudy observing polar water until we got down around 1-3 miles south of line.We found some 45.5-46 degree water but only could manage one fish 22.6 pounds.We were in the classic gannet snow storm with bait from 5 ft. down to the bottom.The wire rods were doing the typical bunker tapdance for what seemed to be miles.All of the elements were present to make the SLOBFEST dreams are made of.The water got cold and the slobs moved offshore.I think it is supposed to be warming up later this week,i would not give up yet.There are many potential good days left in the season! We just need to forget about the ones like yesterday. P.S. Did you guys like the way insult to injury was added into the equation with super low tides @ the ramp just about the time everybody was about to leave, just fabulous!

Same sad story.

Same story all around for Saturday. I don't feel so bad bringing the skunk home when I know we all limited with the smelly critter. That was definitely what you call an extreme tide. Watched several trailers drop off the ramp at OC.

Don't think this guy is going anywhere.
