Fish with the Dinosaur Club today, you know, if the lure wasn't made before 1972 and in the last century then you can't run it. Penn 309's are required as well. Started with a slow morning even with lots of birds working. About 1:00 things turned on and we had controlled chaos in the pit for awhile.:eek: Lots of big fish with the largest at 39 lbs. The TA Rag Mop got most of these. Hey, do think Best Inc. has any of these left I'm running low.

The earliest memory of fishing with my dad in the 70's was a day out catching BIG blues on Ciscos and Snakes, but in hind site that day they would have taken a Beer can with a hook in it, a total frenzy. We ended up with 10 fish, all in the 10 to 16 lb. range, I was just looking at the pics last week.

Yes,
I remember the days fishing with the Cisco kids and Rag Mops over near the eastern shore especially for the BIG Blues that used to show up there. I still have one of each left to use in future trolling trips.They certainly do work.:)
Regards

Outstanding report and day on the water!

I've got a couple old rag mops, a few "Crisco Kids" (my Grandfather called'em that too.. LOL), and some Alou Eels that I found in my Grandfather's shed when he passed. I picked up some "Salty Boogies" and Creek Chubs from a guy that found them in an old battery box in his Granmother's garage. Those XXXL jointed Creek Chubs are POISON! I've been thinking of pulling the Alou eels... just too afraid of losing one.

We were out there too and I had an old broken back creek chub to put back but didn't get around to it. I kicked my last 2 Alou eels in the drink last week and I've been mourning their loss. Nice catch and thanx for the memories.

hey someone must have put a spy on our boat for the mid atlantic rockfish shootout cause that was our bait of choice. I like pulling lures that were born before I was, lol
