Rich has been laid up for a while recovering from knee replacement surgery and just getting to the point where he felt like getting back on the water. His timing was good. We launched into a 22 knot wind off Kent Island and went looking for a ball game. We found one. The only difference about this evening from my last couple of reports was more big fish - all ocean run fish with sea lice. My first cast resulted in a 32 incher. Rich swatted one out of the park with a big fat 36" right away and followed it with another 35" shortly thereafter. Not a bad way to get back in the game, hey Coach? We had at least a dozen overs and many high 20s. If anything, that's an under-exaggeration. No small fish. Our biggest was 37.5". Our best lures were pearl Mann's Hardnose which were hotrodded with an orange garlic dye pen. The fall run is on, and they're close to home! Here's some pics:

great day

Shawn, thanks for a great day. You know we have had some good days in the past, but I don't think we have ever had one any better than today from start to finish. Those ocean fish are so strong compared to our locals. I really needed to get out there today and I knew that alittle wind wouldn't bother you.

Guys, don't ever take your health for granted. Enjoy everyday that you can and do what you have to do to maintain it. Don't waste any fishing days. If you decide you need a knee replaced, find the best doctor you can and get the best physcial therapy and you won't regret the decision. It has only been 30 days for me and I already feel better and in less pain than I have been in for the last 2 years. Rich
