    Went out of DG this morning, by myself after getting my new key. Met a guy named Brian at the dock throwing his cast net with little success. With my front trolling motor still out of commision I asked him if we could help each other out. He jumped in and we went out and got enough bait for the both of us in 30min. I dropped him off and went on my way.

    Spent most of the day fooling with little ones up to 9#. My spot I got my pb had boats in it each time I went by. Went from falling creek to Jones neck and back. Before leaving thought I'd give it a try. Set up shop and on my crapiest $20.00 wal mart surf rod I use for croakers she doubled over. Being such a cheesy rod I figured 20lbs or so. After a couple of good runs back down to 50feet she finaly showed up. All 57.3 pounds my new PB. What a day.

    I still have not gotten a net or scales. I was able to haus'em over the side with gloves and some gentlemen fishermen were kind enough to let me weigh it on their scales. The were glad to se me release it and complemented me for cpr. I told them it's down there getting bigger right now.:smile2:
