Saw Mike Avery's post about his buddy jigging a 209 lber, impressive after taking me 55 minutes to land a 136 lber :yes:. Hopped on with Carl L. as a ho with my buddy Jeff and his friend Allen for a Sat. overnighter. Long but nice ride from Seaford, Va. Stopped and jigged some sea bass and a nice flounder to break up the long ride. Got to the Wash. at around 5:30 and decided to join the chunkers before setting up the BE troll. Saw some very small YF working the chunks so I put out a light rod with bait and started to jig. My jigging set up was for 30-60 lb. YF ( direct tied braid to 60lb flouro with 2 fisherman knots and a treble hook jig) which made it all the more satisfying to land that fish. The fish went off after bleeding it and spit my jig and 2 of the three hooks were badly bent as well. We also trolled up a 119 lber just before dark and had an awesome dinner of grilled NY strip steaks and roasted red potatoes thanks to Carl and Allen (thanks again guys!!!!) Night was dead for us. Trolled Sun. in the Wash. but nothing so we headed S and had a couple cutters run through the spread but no hook ups, always cool to see that, as well as a couple mystery bites. Finished up with some mahi and banded rude fish on light tackle. Pretty darn good trip as a ho, thanks again Carl for the ride, much appreciated!!!!!!
