usually fish about six or seven days and stock the freezer but I don't know if it's worth the gas, bait, hotel etc.for 2 19"ers.

caught some nice fish last year working the flats & drains around the channels .

this year might be hard on the local charter fleet . we will just have to wait and see what the new regs are . I know whatever we end up with will hurt the local area some .

I'd love to catch 5 --18!/2 inchers in a day.They don't have to worry about me & my gang threating the species. We're going ! It's all about the Trip. Let's go fishing!!

looked in my log from last year. We fished 6 days, had limits 4 days, 6 fish over 4lbs. our best day was 18 fish with 7 fish 20" or over.We will have to do alot better than that to have a limit this year, I'm sure I'll shed a few tears watching 4 18.49" fillets swim back to the bottom.

Step on em.. you'll get that extra ".01

I think I have a crew of about 10 TFers going down the week before tourny. Regardless of the new regs. Fishing is probably secondary to us, but some pullage would be nice.

two times last year I had the VA marine police measure every fish in the cooler.
I try not to put anything on ice unless it's a 1/4" over.

You can bet your sweet a$$ the VAMP will be camped out at Capt.Zed`s.A few year ago they got two guys from PA who had a limit of nice fish. One fish that you couldn`t of got a feeler gauge to separate that fish from the Police`s gauge.The guy told the officer that "we don`t take illegal fish",but they got ticketed anyway.The guy working in Zeds told me that cop is real AH.I guess the officer knew they would not take off work and come all the back down there to call him a lair,at the hearing.That insident reminded of one of them old GA speed traps.

I will be down a bunch this spring, have fished Wach. for 20 yrs and finally bought a little fishing cabin in Quinby. I need to paint the place so I will be fishing and painting. Last fall the fishing won over the painting, that needs to change. Does any one know an electrician down that way, I need some work done and its too much for me to tackle. Can't wait to fish.
