Looks like the bay is flat now. Should have gone fishing. Yea it's raining but no big deal. I'm sure if I launched now though, it would kick up.

I'm just about ready to jump on the boat...Does look like some fog rolling in though. There were acres of birds and schoolies up to 25" yesterday afternoon just outside of little creek. Think I may go take a look...

After a good fishun day yesterday, I raced sailboats today out of the Hampton Yacht Club. Actually, we had a great race in the light air - got a second today which put us first overall for the series!

NO boats at all were seen fishing the M&M or Hampton flats.... but several groups of birds were having a good day!

Yep, i had a dozen kickin crabs that wanted to go catch some togs and backed out because of the forcast, then got up this morning to a little rain but no wind, at 1400 i couldnt stand looking out at the flat calm lake in front of the house and hooked her up and headed for the ramp, was fishing at 1500 and didnt get the first tog but rockfish were biteing everywhere and they were nice fish from first island to the sbc, home a 1800

Awe you guys are wimps.:D
Braved the elements and ran out to the highrise for some eeling at 5. Seas weren't bad on the way out but the fog was. Radar and GPS came in handy and followed the bridge all the way. Drifted around a little as the tide was slack when we got there. Set up on some nice marks on the ocean side of the bridge once the tide started rolling in. Took a little while for the first bite...but after that it was ridiculous. Had 5 rods out for the two of us... our second bite was a quad. Managed to land em all. Slowly down sized the spread to 2 rods holding them. It was non stop... drop it down 15' and 30 seconds later battle a fish. Seas got rough as hell so packed it in around 10 for a long slow treck back to Lynnhaven. Lost track of the overall count, must have been around 30 fish. Kept 2 of the smaller ones...weighed 31lb and 37lb. Released many over 44" but nothing over 50. Got beat to death but the fishing was excellent....sore arms and back, going to bed!
