2017 VCFA House Report #23

Postby fishermike » Thu Nov 09, 2017 5:51 pm

Hi! Another great day on the water and in the drizzle, but the action was sizzling as we had our best day of the trip and we only fished about half the day because of the wx. We had 2 boats out today and both caught a lot of albies. :D We managed to hook 35 and land 25 of them as both the Hook and the trawlers were good to us before we came in around 1. We ran into albies as soon as we got to the hook and that action ranged for almost 2 hours before we left for the trawlers and they were just as hot. We had 6 double hookups between the two boats and could have had a couple of triples if we would have just put another line over the side. In fact, we ended the day with a double at the point by the Hook. With the wx forecast to blow 20/30 for the next couple of days, this was probably our last day on the water for this year, but it has been a lot of fun seeing and fishing with old friends again and we look forward to doing the same again next year. We ended the trip with 447 hooked and 283 landed in 20 1/2 days of fishing. We will have been down for 30 so we had a few blow days that really were needed for those of us who stayed most of the trip. We had our usual screw-ups with 5 rods broken, 2 lines in the motor, and today we had a reel handle come off while landing an albie that we managed to land by hand over handing him in. It has been a super trip and it looks like it will continue for a while as the water temp today was 68 and most of the bait has still not exited the sound to really turn things on. I would strongly urge you to consider making a trip down to get in on all of this action. Today was our best and it was the last day of our trip. I believe Brian and Sarah still have some openings and if they are full contact the Fishing Center and they can put you in touch with a top notch guide who will put you on fish. You may just have the trip of a lifetime waiting for you. Thanks again to all who made this year a great trip and hope you all are bowed up when you can get out on the water. :D Thanks and tight lines, mike buss
