Boy am I glad I just got a net!! Hahaha

Jeffbro999, Reel Fishing Girl 86, and I stormed into action today the 31Jan15 at 1030 incoming tide high winds and a crowd of boats to weave in and out of high pressure of Anglers on the water today, so the crew and I started off fishing areas where Most people weren't. Caught a couple keepers and some short specks rite away :yes:

Come 330ish lots of guys started to throw in the towel, boat traffic started to slow down and the ramp got busy. This is when I started fishing areas that were getting pounded, most people are in the right spot but should turn around when they cast... stop beating up the bank guys, thats a huge key to unlock the pattern.

Pulled up to the spot Bam selina gets a 19"
Along with Jeff and I catching some shorties

Drift 50yrds and the magic began
Selina hooks into her biggest speck screamin for the net I look over my shoulder to see the beast head shakin on the surface, we get her fish landed and not 2 seconds later Jeff hooks into a beast, drag screamin, he says its a red we get it close to the boat and its another beast speck, What!!!! So as they're cheering for joy trying to get the hooks out of there trophies I hook up to yet another Beast Bam Bam Bam, just like that now my rod is bent over and Im screamin for the net hahaha turns out I got a Fat 23" Selina got a Fat 22" and Jeff got a Fat 21"

But wait there is more
Now the light is just about out and yep I hook into another drag screamin Speck holy s**t I cant believe it and as Im unhookin this monster Jeff gets doubled over by another Monster, What!!!! Turns out to be that I got another 23" and Jeff got another 21" and BOY are these fish Phat!!!!!!

Heck yeah, what a day. Already a lot of people out when we got there but didn't let that bother us. Seemed to be able to catch them wherever we went but were in small tight schools. You find one, there are usually more.

Selina did an awesome job with her big fish. It slammed the bait right next to the boat and went right around the front to the other side. She battled it for a few tense moments and we were able to scoop it up. Great job:thumbup:
My fish came in pretty easy with a few decent runs. We were happy with the double but before celebration commenced, Josh's fish comes up head shaking like crazy. Got it in the boat and it was celebration time. What a great 5 minutes of mayhem.

Josh's second big fish was slamming bait when he cast in its direction. Couple twitches and the water erupted. He thought it had missed the bait as he couldn't feel anything but then it came tight, the fish was swimming towards him. As Selina was helping him land it, I saw movement less than 10' off the boat. Flipped the lure out and a few twitches later it got slammed. Once landed the lure was inhaled, head first but luckily didn't get in the gills. After snapping some pics those 2 girls were released happy. Not 15 minutes later Josh misses another big one right at the boat as it came up to strike at the last second. It was a lot of fun, can't wait to do it again. Thanks

Saw you guys out there... No trouble recognizing that boat on the water. My first trip on my new boat and my first trip up north only produced a couple of small specks but I'll get it figured out.

I don't have a fish finder installed yet, what is the depth of most of those channels?

Good job guys. The advantage of having the sticks in the water is MORE FISH! The few times I've been out there out seems like the bite really picks up just around sunset. I wish I could have stayed longer but had to get sheepie on ice. I left as soon as I caught that trout. We'll tag team them on two boats next time.

This is LIM-IT-OUT speaking


Its the tides more then the sun, if the incoming tide was in the morning my first cast would have been in the dark;)

If we take two boats we should cover alien water, the more spots we have the more fish we can catch Team LIM-IT-OUT has got to stay ahead of the curve eventually the fish will move or get fished out I counted 12 tailors at archives almost all these anglers are looking for Specks and or Reds. Like I said in the post a lot of them were in great spots won't be long b4 guys start to figure it out.:yes:

Like Jeff said the fish are stacked up once you find them
We can spend 4 hours looking for them but limit out in 15min once you've tracked them down.

I know the Sound is a hot bite as well waders have been killing the specks they're just not reporting

Black Water River is my next challenge there will be a private tournament open over there ran by exclusive pff members the 22feb specks reds and stripers CPR let me know if you're interested great way to meet a lot of the local guys that are considered to be the best fishermen in their home waters. Its all for fun and bragging rights meet new people and friends and catch a whole lot of fish while doin it:yes:

Now as far as meeting up and putting on a reckoning hahahaha what are teams for fire up the grill, get that oil hot and sharpen the knives let me know when ur ready Bud I'll be on the water as much as the weather allows me to or until I get deployed or die
