Yesterday we did a "walk on" trip we had Tyler aka "schoolie", Ross and Austin and the 4th missed his alarm clock. It was simply one of those days thats was meant to be. Again, this type of fishery is very slow, some trips we fish 8 hours for one big bite. However, yesterday it just came together for us. None of the clients have ever caught a big Striper before let alone a citation so this was super special for them and me as well to be apart of it. We kept 4 fish that all made Virginia weight citation size. We weighed in 50, 44.4, 48.7 , 47.6! Pretty incredible day of fishing. These 4 fish harvested will be enjoyed by many families and friends over the holidays. It don't always happen this way. If you like a chance at a true Striped Bass (Rockfish) of a lifeti...
Been a long time since Capt Jorj and I have fished together. We had one of Jorj's best customers Jesse out. We had rubber hooks fish kept pulling off, but thankfully landed 2 out of 5. Both weighed in at Grafton Fishing Supply & Seafood being weight citations and one being Jesse's biggest Va Striper 48 inches 45.8lbs! Called it a early day to beat the rain. Great day with good folks. We have some open dates before season closes give us a shout for a chance at a trophy!
First eeling charter of the year for us. Couldn't ask for better weather. We had two bites and landed one. Billy said "Ive been after a Striper this big for 20 years" glad he could get it. His fish was right at 50 inches (weigh station was closed) We fished hard to get Lee's just didn't get the shot. This type of fishery isn't fast pace by any means... but you have the opportunity to catch a true Striper of a lifetime doing it. We have some open dates from now and end of the year.
Feel like I haven't fished in 10 years.. glad to get the James River Country Club gang out with us yesterday. It didn't come easy! Tough conditions but we scratched out a good catch for them. Congrats on y'all's first Togs. Thanks again!
