    Launched out of Leesylvania SP and got bait quickly. Ran to a deep hole and marked a load of fish at 35 feet. Anchored on a slack tide and deployed four rods...one with a very large chunk of bait in the deepest part of the hole. Nothing happened until the tide started coming in and water started moving. First fish was a fat 22 lber that I had just released when the deep water rod went down. It felt like a good fish and the fight was spirited. When he finally came up it was a 34 lber that thought he was bigger. In four hours of fishing I managed to boat 12 fish all between 20 and 40 lbs. As I was leaving, I stopped by a group of four fishermen in a Lund to offer them my remaining bait. They declined so I headed to a pontoon boat that was just getting set up. The driver noticed my BOC flag and I introduced myself...it turned out to be Earl1 and his wife. We had a nice chat but he had enough bait so I ran back to Leesylvania and saw three guys on the fishing pier. I offered them the bait and they were very happy for it...I hope they caught some good ones on them. A very beautiful day with no wind and hungry fish....can't ask for more than that.

    Water temp was 56 degrees, incoming tide.

    Good job Chuck!

    Nice fish as usual. I was coming in to work this morning and noticed the overcast skies and no wind, and thought to myself it was a perfect day for fishing. I've had great success on days like this.

    Bomber you Da Man again lol. Congrats on another good day of fishing. I went out for a few hours myself, took a friend with me, nothing from the Dock, a couple good pulls on gills but by the time I got to the rod they were always gone, had one rod almost get snatched in the water, but luckily I tied them down :big_smile: Nothing on the bank, a couple pull downs and the usual crabs eating the bait. Oh well, goin out with a BOC buddy in about an hour in this nasty rain, hope to hook a couple bigguns :wink:
