Went fishing on Monticello on Sun the 12 at around 2:30pm. Had two line down line between 30 and 50 ft, two free lines, and two lines on corks around two to four feet. On the corks we were using cut bait and shrimp on the other lines we were using cut bait. Caught 27, 2 pounders. The smallest was maybe 1 lbs and the biggest 3- 3 1/2 lbs. We were drifiting in deep water. About 7:00pm the bite just shut down.....maybe had something to do with the sun coming out, as before that it was overcast. The cool thing was that when the rods would go off it would be a cork and a down rod or a free line. There was no pattern to the fish. They would either bite or not. When they were biting they were bitting everthing. Another cool/ funny/ sad thing that happened was one of Skipper's down rods on the back of the boat was pulled out of the rod holder, in slow motion, to the deep dark abyss. We laughed about this all day but could never figure out how it got out of the trolling rod holder on the back of my center console. I used the upper ramp, and on the return trip, after the water had dropped, found the hole at the end of the ramp. My boat suffered no damage. However my boat on its first fishing trip after just three times in the water, this hole did cause me some anxiety. All in all a great fishing day. Oh yea....there were no other boats on the deep water with us.
