2017 VCFA House Report #3

Postby fishermike » Mon Oct 16, 2017 6:45 pm

Hi! Another great day on the water, even though it was cut short when the wind started to pickup around 2 pm. We had 4 boats out today including the little boat that could, a 14 footer with a 9.9 hp that led the way hooking 11 and landing 8. Our other boats did not fare as well hooking 5 and landing 2. That brings the house total to 34 hooked and 20 landed after 2 and a half days! We caught them today by casting to breaking fish that popped up within casting distance while trolling or drifting and dredging. We ran into them south and north of the #2 buoy and in Beaufort Inlet. Another rod was broken on a high stick while landing an albie that was cast to, bringing to 3 the # of broken rods. Hope we don’t run out at this one per day rate! Looks like fly tying for the next few days. House is open,114 Pintail Lane, for anyone who might want to stop by and share patterns or stories! Thanks again and hope the wx guys are wrong and we can get out after them again quickly! Tight lines, mike buss

Hi! I guess most of you figured out that we were fishing Barden Inlet vice Beaufort Inlet yesterday. Breaking fish and lots of albie marks on the depth finder and some hookups make for a nice day. Now we just need the wind to let up a little, but before it does hope it brings some colder water in! thanks and tight lines, mike
