After an unsuccessful trip to the HR Sat. night, one 35"er, I was ready for some more pullage. Departed downtown Hampton around 7:30 am Sunday and headed for the ES. Archie from Hampton was the sole eeler I had for the trip. Marked some fish early on and saw Max in his battleship. It took a while till we hooked a + 40" fish. Afternoon came around and no more fish. Started to think it was going to be a one fish day. All of a sudden a knockdown I'm hooked up, then Archie's rod goes off and we got a double. Cleared 5 other lines maneuvered the boat and got them both. Took the biggest and released the other. Archie caught one more for fun and then we called it quits. We experienced motor problems and crawled home in time to weigh the fish at 36 & 37 pounds. That was fun. Archie you are a great ho and welcome anytime.
