Closing in on Christmas. Sea bass pushing off, dogfish coming south; it’s even becoming ‘normal’ to see some decent scup off here as everything heads for the deep.
Dropped our blocks on a flat-topped barge and went a bit further.
In 20 minutes I had more more sea bass aboard than I did at 1:30 yesterday. At 45 minutes Pat Hagerty of Reisterstown had boated our first limit. Wouldn’t be too long and folks were giving my mates fish. And soon after that? We couldn’t legally have kept another sea bass.
Boat Limit – in an hour and a half early.
Nice when it happens.
More saddleback pics & video in another post..
If I can find a weather window the boys and I will be working on PJ Aldridge’s Reef this week. Dern sure doesn’t look like any fishing weather. Thought we’d first have to load the 22yd dumpster. But no, Brooks from down Whiton Rd came and took care of that task all by his dernself Saturday in the rain! Have a lot of wood to remove though, then give her bilge a good scrubbing, and finally add some heavy ballast before we sink her.
If you want to help, pay attention here or sign up for emails at ocreefs.org .. I’ll announce these volunteer opportunities and hope for some weekday help..
