Fishermen/Fishing report Sunday 7/24/11
Horrible conditions with lack of current or drift all day, so we made our own power drifting. Worked the throttles all day picking and plucking at more keepers than shorts!
Fish up to 6 1/2 pounds with many in the 3 to 4 pound class.
Didn't have many bucktailers aboard and 95% of the customers had Rod rentals which makes today even better from the production side.
Good fishing yesterday on the afternoon trip. Very nice pick on keepers up to 7 pounds. James Rissi, celebrating his 28th birthday and friends were aboard for a nice afternoon of Fluke catching. High hook had 5 keepers and the pool fish at seven pounds.
Bite was wild as the sun was going down, ran back up to start the drift again, the sun had disappeared and not another fish to be caught, just that fast!
That's how we came up with the phrase "Magic Hours" years ago!
Chartered this Friday and Saturday morning.
