There getting BIGGER

"There getting Bigger"

With the cold sap we have had this past week, has
triggered the bigger rock fish to start biting. Fish in
the 40" to 44" were boated this past weekend. The night
bite has been better than the day bite for sure. Casting 
jigs on the incoming tide produced rocks in the 24" up
to 36" class, and 1 nice fish over 40". Casting eels is 
starting to get under way, reports of rocks in the 32" to 
44" class were boated this past weekend. The season is 
now under way, and will get better every day.

The RockHound will now start doing what she knows 
best, live bait fishing for Trophy Rock Fish. We are
now going to start our night charters .

We will be running walk on charters 
next Friday and Saturday night.

Recon Weekend Report

"Recon Weekend Report"

    The Rock Hound and 3 other fellow Captains were involved
in this weekends recon trips. We all had an area to fish, both day and night trips.

    This report starts on Friday night, the area the CBBT. With 
 the incoming tide, the bite started slow. Than as the tide started ripping the rock fish turned on, 3 anglers C&R over 30 fish from 18" up to 32" in 1 hour.  

   Saturday morning, 1 Captain fished the CBBT, and 1 the JRB area. The CBBT report was very slow, from casting eels, jigs and
swim baits only produced only 3 rocks all morning. Started trolling with stretch's  from the 4th island down to the 2nd on
the ocean side. Marked lots of bait and schools of fish, but never
got a bite.

  The JRB area did fairly well Saturday morning, boating rocks,
puppy drum and specks. 

  Today back at the 3rd island, the bite I've been waiting for to turn on. Rock Fish in the 36" class showed up and biting. After
about 45 min. 16 rocks from 26" to 36".

  The fish are here, seems the bite as been on the incoming tide
both day and night. The temps are around 58 at the CBBT, and
coming down. Next weekend with the temps dropping, the fishing will be better than this past weekend. 

  Tight Lines,
Capt. Pete

Weekend Recon Trip

"Weekend Recon Report"

Headed out at 7 AM Saturday morning for the CBBT,
started casting into the rocks on the 4th island. Water temp
was 64* with 1 to 2 foot swells and no bait on the screen. 

Moved over to the 3rd island, and  picked up 2-18" rocks
and missed 1. There was a bite at 2nd island, just not what
I was looking for. After 4 hours boated 6 rocks all under
20" and 4 Tog's all shorty's. Need this cold front coming 
threw to bring the temps down and the fish up north. 

Tight Lines,
Capt. Pete
