Bay Pirate takes Rivers "Up the River" to Chase Reds
 
Cap'n John Rivers andI hooked up today for a trip on the Bay Pirate. He was feeling a little awkward from the start,
  1. <LI>What, I don't have to drive the boat?</LI><LI>What,I get to to be thelead man on the Casting Platform?</LI><LI>What,I get to catch the 1st 2 reds, wow this IS fun!! </LI>

:poke

Heavy fog greeted usafter a short run and wehad to slow to idle speed; John's got keen eyes and was able to help me pick out some channel markers while Iwatched the GPS NAV Chart. When it cleared; up on plane to 50mph we went and offto the 1st spot we go!

He chose the famedJohnsonGold Spoon, 1/4oz,andI chosea coupleof Gulp Baits and 1/8oz jig heads, what a suprise, huh?

He quickly put me in my place with this nice hook up....

Then a little later he got another....:banghead....both slot reds!

Meanwhile,I'm catching a few specs, maybe4 or5 from10" to maybe 14".....:banghead

Things slowed sowe headed to some docks for some sight fishing andfound fish quickly; not a lot but a few.....spoooooky they were; regrettably, we chased one stud, likely oversized in less than 2ft of water, neither of uscould coax a strike, very frustrating!

Wind kicked up, so wemoved on to one last spot.....

As we were about to call it aday, :nonono, whoops, it's Bay Pirates turn, the Gulp Jerk Bait came alive and,here's a little red!

Now John's getting mad :hoppingmad....(in fun of course)...I'm catching all the fish right in front of him,I think about8 or 9:doh....he's scrambling for my Gulp Baits, because he forgot his......I say :nonono,, they're $5 each, use your gold spoon :poke! Just kidd'n,I let him usesome GulpBaits!

Whoops I get one last slot fish....Here he is....

ericholstman (10/16/2008)Wewill publish next month's productive areas Nov. 1!!! Stay tuned!!Glad Brant and I could help you guys out. I can show you how to correctly fish Blackwater and produce the high slotsfor 250. :) Find your own tiny fish to molest.
Wow. Now that, is Gross.

Looks like someone forgot what the thrill is all about. The best part is the hunt, and always will be, the greatest thrill. The catch suffers in comparison, to the hunt. I too, would rather catch the tiny fish, than to be shown whatever it is you think you know about pursueing any gamefish of any size.

I have fished with many different people, and hope to fish with many more. I have also fished with many that I will never fish with again, and they all haveshared one quality, they were not fun to fish with. Labels and Logos don't make great fishermen, think about Mark Sosin?????? I hope I never have to make a living fishing, and if I do I hope I don't look desperate,but hope I always enjoy fishing for the thrill it is.

Great Report Bay Pirate, sounds like it wasgreat time on the water, thanks for sharing. Bet it was a big time.

Eric edited his post, so I'll edit mine.
  1. <LI>I was the Captian, &amp; determined when and where John and I went <U>without</U> any input from him; Brant and Johns dealhad nothing to do with choosing any fishing spots today.</LI><LI>I've been fishing Blackwater longbeforeIknew you, howeverI will admit attending some of your seminars has helped improve and hone some of my skills.</LI><LI>I hope in the future that you keepany issues with John between the 2 of you and not with or thru me or my posts. I reserve the right to choose whoI fish with, and whereI wish to fish.</LI><LI>By the way, John has some sharp eyes for spotting fish including a 30-40lb black drum in less than 2ft of water.Ithought it was a log at 1st! We were unable to solicit a strike, but we sure had fun trying!!</LI>

I had hoped for an apology, andI guess in your own way that's whatI got!

Who would have thought catching fish was so controvertial???
