Today is my brother's birthday, so I went fishing with Randy.
Randy lives in Damascus MD so I met him at 8:15a at Edward's Ferry. That meant self launch and self takeout at Algonkian...both of which went smooth.
Like it has been, it was foggy....
...but not that bad until I got to EF. My original plan was to fish upriver but I was not going up with the dense fog so we drifted down river.
1st fish came up quickly, on a tube.
It took about an hour until Randy got his skunk off...
...but once he got his pattern going, there was no stopping him!
Most of his fish came off a spinner bait with a paddle tail trailer and a buzzbait rigged the same. He was catching on the buzzbait at high noon!
I was allowed to catch some too....
And then...the wind came up. We had 1+' rollers coming from the south. So much, that we drifted up river to finish out. We motored up a bit and I was doing 18mph. I had no wind in my face!
A couple of Randy's fish came as we drifted up.
For the day, he was over a dozen easy, including 3 FAT 16 inchers (one was closer to 17"). We called them Susky fish! He had his magic going with the 2 lures mentioned above. I think he caught 1 or 2 on a swim bait.
The wind made us quit....
The ride back was slow and bumpy but the boat handled everything well.
Great job and good to see then biting on top! More experience with the boat...
