My brother John and I entered the Mid-Atlantic Rockfish Shootout on my modified Yamaha PWC and fished today. Unfortunatley we only caught one 33 inch 15.5 lb fish. We departed Rudee inlet In Virginia Beach and headed south. Ended up about 36 miles down off of Currituck Light House in North Carolina.

Most of the boats were still going south but I was getting poor mileage since there was two of us on the ski and it was a little sloppy with 3-4 footers early on. We trolled the area for a while and then decided to head back and try our luck off of Sandbridge. There were several boats between False Cape and Sandbridge and I caught our one Striper on a 20 oz mojo. Water temp was 40.2. While I was there a boat had just sank and the crew had just been rescued buy a Bass Pro Team that was fishing in the same tourny. A couple guys got wet but I hear all were fine. I do not know what the cause of the sinking was but I hear it was a 26-28 footer.

We had a great day and covered a total of 84 miles and burned 27 gals. I hold 21 gallons but carried an extra 10 with us today. I heard later that the big bite was about 43 miles south which is further than everyone expected and more than I could have gone. Had a great day, here are some pictures from today.
