Hello everyone,

Its been awhile, but the weather has been horible. This past weekend I entered into the Colonial Beach Rockfish Tournnament. I did not place, but caught some nice fish. My crew consisted of my long time neighbor in PA, Greg (who runs his 23 ft Grady White out of Indian River Bay, DE), and my Dad. The first day we had high winds and no fish:( The second we went down close to the mouth of the river and did much better. We hooked up on four Rockfish. One short at 15 inches, a 20 inch - 5 pounder, 24 inch - 10.5 pounder, and a 38 inch - 21.6 pounder. See pics below.

If you want to know how I caught them:

1) Trolling Speed: 3 - 4 mph

2) 4 - 6 oz green powerchute tandem rigs with a 6 inch shad

3) Had one daisy chain rig out the middle of the spread.

I ran 5 rods out the back of my 18 ft Searay 175. I designed these rod holder/outriggers for mu boat to accomidate the extra two rods. If anyone is interested on how they are designed let me know.
