    It killed me keeping quiet about your big fish after we spoke last week. Been some Boo Hooing going on about full moon queering the fishing and what not. :smile2:

    All the while you and the Mrs. were hauling in the hogs. Congradulations to both you and your wife. Hope to see you when you come back at Thanksgiving. I was meat fishing in the Chesapeake Bay while you were here this past trip.

    All fish were caught from turkey island clear down to where wards creek comes in past the power lines.I used large baits the first day but missed three out of four so I used smaller cuts of cutter shad after that.I seen the fish my wife got before we had a line in on the fishfinder.I set the boat up and before I got all the poles out down one of them went.Had good luck getting cutter shad in my gillnet stright across from jordons point ramp in 7 to 9 ft of water.I will be coming down with my daughter saturday through tuesday so if you see me on the river stop by and say hello.
