Capt Ed Lawreance - 09/18/2011

All I can say is “What a Week!!”.  You would think that with the way the weather was (terrible) we might not have fished but I had the Boyz from Texas, and an intrepid pair they are.  They were well rewarded for their perseverance.  The Speck bite is just plain HOT!  They caught their dinner for most of the week on Monday and on Wednesday added to it.  On Thursday, we chased and caught Stripers and, when the tide forced us to leave the marsh, we caught more Specks.  Friday was totally a catch and release Speck day.  The dern wind was blowing 4 times harder than predicted, as usual, so we hide up in a cove and caught more Specks, mostly Kittens (the old time word for Dinks).  When the wind finally laid down and came around 180 degrees from the prediction, as usual, we made a move and fell into a school of cookie cutter fish in the 18″ range.  I was tagging almost as fast as they were catching and they kept me busy for the best part of an hour.  What a great way to end a 4 day trip!
