Crab Ledge 6/13
Fished east of Chatham for SBFT Sunday. Put the lines out at Crab Ledge, my new pink spreader bar drew the first strike. Marco made short work of a 44" fish. Next up was Eric, hooked a decent fish on a bird/green machine chain. We released a 40"+ fish, I'm all for catch & release , but it would be nice to bring home one for the grill. Lines out again, this time Cappy Tom is up, I see a boil and bam the bird/chain goes off again. Cappy's hooked up, another nice SBFT all of 50lbs. The action slowed so we pointed the boat east in search of a 47+" fish. We had a knock down near the BC but it threw the hook. Not a bad start for 06. At least we get a couple of weeks with the 27" limit later this month.
