Sunday, I was at church watching my children perform in the Christmas Pagent. Wes Blow and Charles Southall were in the Elizabeth River, catching speckled trout. They caught and released about 25 speckled trout including a number of citation-sized fish. They kept one fish. It was Charles' first speckled trout citation and it was his 6th different citation species of the year, earning him another Expert Angler Award. His fish ended up weighing in at 7 pounds 12 ounces.

Monday, we sent Charles back to work (where he belongs) and I went speckled trout fishing with Wes. I was expecting the same kind of day. After about 5 hours without a bite in the cold and wind, I asked Wes, "you guys were just fooling with me, weren't you?". He said that there were really speckled trout in this river and that I should have been there yesterday. Right at the end of the day, the fish started to bite. We caught about 12 to 15 fish before it got too dark to see. We let everything go. None were large but I was happy to just be getting some bites. I think that Wes is back out there today, in the cold and the wind (while I am back at work).

Hey guys. Nice report. So did Wes "clock in " today at the usual time and spot? (LOL) Kevin and I decided to stay home and keep warm and get a few things done for a change. Got to get this house clean so Santa doesn't break his leg after he tunnels down the chimney:wink44:. Happy Holidays to the both of you and I'll see you on the water :yes:
P.S. Congrats on the expert angler:thumbup:
