Hopped aboard the "Alway's Something" today with Capt. George and Bucket. Departed from Little Creek and headed to Cape Henry.

As we drew near the line, I noticed some birds and we began marking some nice bait in 45'-60' of water. Bucket and I put out the spread of Mojo's, Parachutes, Tomic's and a Strech 30 all in chartreuse.

Didn't take long before the Mojo on the bottom went down. I grabbed the rod and pulled in a nice healthy 36" rockfish. felt good considering 2008 was an abismal year for me with rockfish.

About 20 minutes later, Bucket get's a hook up on a rod and pulls in a 38" rockfish on the stretch 30 which was way back.

Bucket and I traded fish again with me pulling in another one around 38" and Bucket got a nice fat 44" slob. Capt. then stepped to the back of the boat and got himself a nice 37" as well to finish the day.

At about 11am the bait and bite ceased, so we packed up and headed in around noon.

Total was 5 fish today between 36" and 44" all of which were fat and healthy. One had a 12" menhaden in his belly which he had just eaten, the rest had menhaden as well.

Lure of choice today was the parachute with trailer!

Bucket's 44":

Purty work! Capt George has been a fish magnet!

We zigged instead of zagged. Concentrated on soaking eels at the ES for a good while, when we skidaddled to the Cape but the bite had died.

Glad you got the 2009 skunk off!

How many hit the MD lures?
