Fished eels all day east of the highrise. made one move to Natulis Shole and then back to fishing around # 10. Finaliy @ 3pm we get 2 pulls and one fish hooks up. Nice fish! Line tangles with another. Quit reeling for 5 seconds. FISH GONE. 20 minutes later 2 more pulls one fish hooks up. 1 fish landed. 48" @ 41 lbs. Was fishing in an 80 boat tournament on the Eastern Shore. Had to leave to make weigh in. This was my first time eeling. We stuck with it and it paid off with the biggest rock to date being cuaght on my boat and my good friend Harry's biggest rockfish. Good team effort. Hope to get out and try agian soon. As for the tourney we were in 3ard as of last night. 2 other fish, a 42lb & a 52lb were caught in Pocomoke Sound. Each the only fish the guys caught and both caugh trolling. Oh by the way, Thanks to Lou Rajnys for the tips he provided that gave me the confidence to stick it out.
