Fished the Concrete Ships off Kiptopeke on Satuday night and landed a 45 incher in the 'yak. Then returned Sunday early AM in the boat and I got another 42 and my brother landed three to 44. All on eels. Drifted off Fisherman's and lost two fish then drifted off the ships and lost another fish. It's on.

Thanks guys. Nice site with some old friends. Fish were caught near the Concrete Ships about a 1/2 mile off the launch ramp at Kiptopeke State Park. Use a medium/heavy conventional combo spooled with 30 pound braid. Tie on a 150 pound snap swivel, a 2 to 6 ounce inline sinker, 4 feet of 80 pound fluoro and a 9/0 Owner cutting point J-hook. Paddle up to the ships and drop the eel to the bottom. Make a couple cranks to get the bait off the bottom and wait for a fish.

Wind just dropped out so I'm going tonite. I'll post the results.

Ric
