biggest fish

it is an official record: the biggest catfish was caught in virginia last week...awesome, but what do you do with that much catfish? i know what my daddy told me, but here are some alternatives.

waiting for the moon...

a little too windy for fishing by myself on the bay today, and i couldn't rouse the dog so i busied myself with the honey-do list. now it's sunset. tonight we have a full moon, and i really hope it improves the fishing situation...couldn't get worse!

bluefish derby

i have had zero luck so far this rockfish season, so maybe i will try my line for bluefish...the reedville bluefish derby starts tomorrow and there are 30 different fish classes with prizes totalling $25,000...i am sure i could catch a croaker if i tried: under pressure, i could pull one in.
