Started the morning on the beach at Dam Neck to beautiful water and spanish jumping everywhere, only problem was the grass was in full force! Called Jaime and he wasn't doing squat at Rudee, so we hopped in his boat and started trolling for some spanish.

Made the right out of Rudee and trolled all the way to the pier at Sandbridge, picking up 2 dozen blues (saved for live bait), before turning left and heading to the bouy at Sandbridge.

Nothing on the bouy there, so we went to the Tiger, and got shut down due to some divers, so we went to a spot within spitting distance of the CLT.

Got there and found some spades. Ended up catching our limit in spades, but released and tagged 10 along with a nice triggerfish and a few sea bass as well.

There was a massive Barracuda swimming aorund us the whole time and he would not touch a thing. Had a live blue out for a while, lures, he wasn't touching anything! Good thing as he probably would have cut us off anyway. Easy 60+ pound Cuda, Big and Nasty!

Just finished a nice spadefish dinner with the family and man was it good!:happy2: My boy chowed down on the fresh fish!!!

Nice day, nice weather, and a few nice fish as well!

Tons of menhaden and bait everywhere today! Dolphins too!!

I bet if you threw a 2 or 3' surgical hose eel in front of him he would be all over it.

I made my report over on Fintalk and It went something like this.....

Headed to the rail this morning to do my usual tagging efforts - tagged and released 12 FLOUNDER....saw Lil Suzy ride out in search of big fish once again.....all the charter slot were empty too....they were trolling off sandbridge back & forth.....Steve called and said he had 12 MULLET and was fishing off the beach at Dam Neck if I wanted to join him he had plenty of bait.....On my way home he calls me back and asked why we did not head to BG as usual....she is off doing yard sale stuff bla bla bla ......he says he would mind going trolling a bit since the surf is covered in grass.....to my house he comes and we give K Meyer a buzz and see if'n he wants to go too.....he has never caught spanish before....Steve & I get to OC and Kevin & Racheal (she brought me 12 GLAZED DONUTS) hop on board and out we go....3 lines in, 2 inlines w/ a 4 and a 8 - third deployed on the planer.....12 SECONDS in the hunt ~ FISH ON ! We troll past down past the golf ball and catch 12 BLUEFISH, but no Macs .....turned around, looped back, zig zagged - nothing but blues ! Steve said but he wanted 12 SPANISH MACS to take home to the family.....it was not to be. So we packed in the rigs and headed 12 MILES to the tiger wreck where we found 12 IDIOTS on a dive boat talking dirty and not being very nice to the other boats there.....we left right away and headed to the "Tower Area" 12 MINUTES away from the CLT at 12 KNOTS and I told the crew we could go get some spadefish if they wanted .......got there to find but 1 other boat......lines in and 12 HEARTBEATS later it was FISH ON ! We kept 12 SPADEFISH and I tagged another 12 SPADEFISH for the program.....Kevin & Steve caught about 12 SEABASS too- tagged and released as well......Kevin caught a 12" TRIGGERFISH...tagged and released it too.....saw a 60lb BARRACUDA, Steve offered it a live blue fish but it turned away eased off into the deep..... back in around 4pm and had a nice day on the water .........fun for all and everybody went home with fresh Spadefish
