I haven't been out in over a month but decided Monday would be a good day with forcasted temps in the mid-70s. I launched from Leesylvania SP at 6:30 a.m. under gray skys and light wind. Water temp: 78 degrees. Caught 6 nice cutters with the gill net after a 5 minute soak and headed off to fish. I arrived at my favorite spot to find it completely covered in commercial gear...there was a bouy about every 10 feet apart...I was very concerned about getting one caught up in the prop. There wasn't any place to anchor safely without getting caught up in gear so I went to spot #2...same story...the place was covered in bouys. So, more than a little frustrated I headed to some deep holes only to find more bouys...this time spaced farther apart...some right in the shipping channel. I found a place between them and deployed two lines...there wasn't room for any more. Two hours and two pull downs later I had one 12 lber for my efforts. I'm not sure what kind of gear was under the bouys but, since they were in pairs, I assumed they were trot lines...but I hope I'm wrong. With rain coming in spurts and the wind picking up I called it an early day and was off the water by 10:00 a.m.
