February 7th - Fishing With The Thompsons

It was a great day to be on the water. We had 2 boats out today - Jerry Thompson's Boat "Top Kat" and Wayne Hamiltons Boat "Blue Blazer." Jerry and his family have recently become part of the Bayshore Family, so I was anxious to fish with him, his daughters Kristian and Natsha, and his father Mr. Thompson.

Wayne picked up his boat, 22 Whaler, a few months ago and has been getting it ready for it's maiden voyage. It performed like a champ. I fished on the "Kool Kat" and really am looking forward to offshore trips this summer!

The water was about 57 degrees, we fished an outgoing tide. We fished Shrimp Boat, Boat Cut and the Moon Rock. Between the two boats we caught 1 Bull Red, 2 Slot Reds, 1 Puppy Drum, 2 Big Black Drum and 1 undersized flounder. It really was pretty slow, the Black Drum Run hasn't started in earnest yet, but shouldn't be too long.

Here are a couple of pics from Wayne's Boat -- He took them with his Cell Phone. Boy need's a camera ....

Here are the pics from Jerry's Boat.

Kristen had been eating shrimp in the backgound, while Natasha caught a nice red.
Natasha thinks she can fish ... and I think she is right! She outfished me on numbers, but I got her today on mass!
A true Big Ugly!
