June 14th - Jolly Roger

Image
One of the great things about fishing is that from time to time you get to fish with people whose fishing reports you have admired - and coveted from time to time. Today was such a day.

Dewey and I were able to take Jolly Roger - (T.J.) out for a little Jetty action today. T.J. is the best surf fisherman for Bull Reds I know. I learned a great deal fishing with him. IT was great!

Water was 88.4 - wind was very manageable - water was nice. We fished the end of the outgoing tide and the start of the incoming. This is a 42-43 inch Red that T.J caught - great fish ... great guy. I will let him tell the story of the "Ling that got away!" His story ... not mine. But all in all a great day fishing!

This is the Bull Red that I caught. He was a tad under 40 inches. On the day - we caught 2 Bull Reds, 1 4 foot black tip shark, several other small sharks, and we lost one 3 /12 foot Ling. Slow day fishing - but great fun!

June 7th - Dewey's Personal Record Red

Image
It was an incrediby windy day on the Jetty. We were able to find some sheltered water - but it was very sandy and off color. Two days of wind does that. The water has warmed up to 85.2 degrees.

Dewey caught an incredible Bull Red. It was 47 inches long and weighed in at an estimate 52lbs. (The boat was bouncing big time when we weighed her.) She was caught on cut whiting.

Leave a comment about the movie - and Dewey's Fish!

Here is another picture of Dewey's Bull Red. This was Dewey's Personal Best! (Still not a big as mine ... smile) It was the only good fish on a windy windy day at the Jetty.

And what did I catch? Well ... several of these little sharks - about the same size as the little plastics sharks I played with as a boy in the bathtub! (laughing)

June 1st, 2005 - Dewey Walls III

Image
A great day of fishing - Dewey's Grandson - Dewey Wells III - caught this Bonnethead shark when we fished on Tuesday. It was a slow day of fishing - I lost another nice Ling (a leader I made broke) - we had a Jack fight well - but pull loose at the boat - and a number of Sharks.
Image
This was the first Red we have caught in aquite a while. He was 39" - about 27lbs. And as always - he was released to fight another day.

Here is a picture of a big ray that Dewey caught. It had to be about 4 foot across.

If you want to see a movie of Dewey catching the ray - click here - but the file is 17mgs big!

Here is one of the Sharks we caught on the day. Many were this size. Fun to fight and release.
