VCFA House Report #9

Postby fishermike » Tue Oct 25, 2016 5:40 pm

Hi! Difficult conditions with high northwest winds made fishing difficult for all of us in boats. Our sand person, however, hit a home run :D hooking 7 and landing 6 from the beach for his best ever. He was using a dropper fly and even had two on at the same time before one broke off. They started off President's Point with the start of the incoming tide around 10:30 and lasted until 1:30 with lots of action right on the beach. He didn't have his cell with him and we forgot to give him one of our portable radios, so he had no way to let us know this was going on. We were out behind trawlers off Shackleford Is. and hooked 3 and landed 2 before we headed over to Atlantic Beach and nothing and then back to the hook when we discovered the action and hooked 2 more and landed one for a boat total of 5 hooked and 3 landed. Totals for the house today are 113 landed and 178 hooked. In retrospect, it was probably a good thing our sand person was unable to contact us as that meant no boats to chase the fish away. He had them all to himself. :D I've been saying all along that this year is going to be epic and the results from the beach today just re-enforce that. Plus, although they haven't said so, Brian and Sarah have been having 30 to 50 fish days casting to them! I don't know if Brian and Sarah have any more open days, but this epic year is one you should not miss. A simple phone call to them is all it could take to put you into some of the best fishing of your life! Don't blow it by sitting on your rear end! Hope to see you all bowed up tomorrow, tight lines, mike buss

Great job on the beach fish!! I had a great day there last year. Think we saw you getting back on the boat at around 3:30?

Yes, that was us. We use 69 and my call sign is Fishermike. Our yaker is Zipper. Another good day today put us over 200 for the fastest to 200 and puts 400 within reach with a good week and a half which will just obliterate our current record. :D thanks and tight lines, mike
