Congrats Al !!!!!!!!!

Alright I give up ................ where ??

I'm guessing you took a ride over to Smith and fished the shoal from the beach but I could be wrong. I'll be trying to yak over there this Sat. if the weather will cooperate because that's the first day I can ease out of work even though Fri. looks much more weather friendly. :angry9:

Heard that and wouldn't mind the same but the yak will have to do for now. I've made the trip for the last three years but only a 46" Red off the yak and a lot of small stuff off the beach to show for it so far. Hopefully that will change this weekend if the wind and weather allow it.

Assateague Island, VA May 15/16 Friday H 1317, L 1906; Saturday L 0757, H 1403.

Got on the beach around 1330 Friday and ran into John of PA...we had spoken in passing before and fished alongside each other in '08 Sat of Mother's day Brought fresh bunker from Kool Ice and clams & peelers from Jimmy @ Capt Steve's. Bunker heads on one of 5 rods never caught They call bunker a Fall bait in Chinco. Around 1450 John's rod goes and produces a 38", 30lb black drum. Not 10-15 mins later my buddy's loaner goes and produces my first black drum...36", 27.1 lbs. Couple doggies/skates but not many. Around 2000 and John & I decide to go grab dinner after dropping the monsters @ Capt. Steve's

Get a 3 hour nap and am first on @ 0500. John & I decide to hit the same spot and start getting more doggies and few skates. At around 0845 Maranto's rod goes again, and I get a 25", 8lb black drum. Doggies got a lil thicker and one knock down which pulled my ff sliding weight to the shock leader/running line knot...maybe a rock?!?! Had to get home and pulled in at 1100. Really can't say enough about the help and hospitality I always receive from all @ Capt. Steve's

All fish on peelers

Had the smaller black tonight for dinner
