It's been a long time since we've updated Trab On's site. Trophy season this year was wet and cold and we didn't make out like we wanted. It's July and the tuna have moved closer to the coast. Trab On III is now summering in Ocean City and waiting somewhat patiently to pluck a tuna from the sea!
Mother Nature has definitely put a damper on the first week of opening week, but there have been a few bright spots. When the winds subside and the water lays down the fishing is on!
Tuesday, 19 April - 39"
Wednesday, 20 April - Two 32"
Sunday, 24 April - 38" and 32"
Monday, 25 April - 40" and 36"
The first two days of Fishmas started out pretty rough. High winds and rain made the fishing challenging. The third day proved worthy! Two fish in the box...31" and 36"! Check out the pics!
It's almost that time of year!! Mike is already planning trips to fishing shows to stock up on supplies. There was a huge two day article in the Capital about DNR busting folks for netting off season. They caught tons of illegal fish. Shame on people!!! The rules are there to protect our resources. Obey the rules so others can enjoy what the Bay gives us!
Ended the 9 day fishing spree with coworker George Webb and his wife Eva accompanied by myself, Cam and his friend Joey. Although the weather was beautify, we struggled for over 6.5 hours before we were able to land a 36 incher. Glad we were able to keep the streak alive
Just a great day to be on the water. Had Teresa, Karen, Shawn and Cam out for what turned out to be a very calm day. Ended up landing a 32" and 35" rockfish that made for an afternoon of grilled fish and beer.
Today we had 2nd annual charter courtesy of My Girl Fishing Charters. Many thanks to Captains Steve and Laura for their efforts putting us on the fish. We landed five fish for our group of 6 including Cal, Tom, Gary, Frank, Mike and myself. A bit of a windy start with fears of only getting 2 fish ended up a great day on the water with five keepers.
Bill and Lew accompanied me for what turned out to be the most calm day on the water so far. The fog was as thick as soup from the time we left the dock at 6 am until around 10:30 in the morning. We landed our first fish around 7:30 and the second around 10:30. We worked the fishing grounds trying for the 3rd without success...but wow, what a beautiful day
Had a great friend fishing day with Mike. It was a bit wavy, but we were able to land a 28 incher after bringing in a 39 1/2. Done by 9:30 and beat the rain that started as we pulled into the dock.
The fishermen of our home are Mike (Dad) and Cameron (the boy). They both love to be out on the water and it's wonderful that they share that with each other.
