POC; Day 1


Scott and I made our annual run to Port O'Connor to fish with our buddy Steve Barnes. Steve got a new boat this year, a 31' Twin Vee powered by a pair of 300hp Suzuki's. The boat ran great and handled the rough conditions we had Monday morning. The winds got up Sunday evening and stirred up the gulf, needless to say I wasn't feeling to good when we made our first stop at a shrimp boat. Scott hooked up immediately with a nice jack while I was chumming. Its no fun puking, but I always feel a whole lot better afterwards. The winds settled down and the rest of the afternoon wasn't near as rough.

We caught all the kings and jacks we wanted off the shrimp boats. The remora's were especially active as well which is unusual for them to hit flies as aggressively as they did. We also caught some lady fish, sharks and Scott even caught a seagull on a back cast. Lol. Scott had a spinner shark come air-born right in front of him that he wished he could have got on video as he said it was one of the coolest things he's seen. Over all a solid day offshore with many drag burning runs from strong fish.
