PFC Jessica Hamilton

We had a great day on the water in Wayne's "Blue Blaze" Boston Whaler. I had the privilege to fish with PFC Jessica Hamilton who is home on leave. She is Wayne and Rose's daughter. On the day we boated 11 Big Black Drum caught at the Moon Rock - 33 ft. of water - on crab fished on the bottom. It couldn't have been a more beautiful day.

If you would like to email PFC Hamilton -

Here is a video that we made Jessica to take back with her to Iraq and show that the fish in Texas really are bigger!

Marth 12th, 2008 - Beautiful Day

It was a beautiful day at Galveston's North Jetty. As you can see from the pic, it truly was an "Ice Cream Day." We fished at the Moon Rock and Shrimp Boat with a strong incoming tide. Water was right at 58 degrees. We fished about one day ahead of another Cold Front that is due to come in.
Here is a video of the fishing:

The first rub of the day was the absence of Crab for bait. With the North Wind blowing, the crabbers had been unable to tend their pots so we had to opt for Craw Fish! Several on 2Cool had mention this as a viable option. We boated all 4 Black Drum on Craw Fish!

As always, we vent the drum. You can find a video of how to vent them here.

American Idol - Chikezie - "She's a Woman"

With all the options of television out there - there aren't really very many shows that my entire family stop to watch or DVR. When WWE Wrestlin' comes on - my wife leaves the room and my boys and I watch. When my wife watches the Animal Rescue/surgery shows ... I am outa there. When Hunt for Big Fish is on ... I am on my own - but when American Idol comes on - we are there as a family watching.

Tonight I was blown away by the performance of Chikezie ... I really don't have a favorite ... but I really enjoyed this performance.

And while this is a fishing blog ... it is MY fishing blog (smile) so ... here is the video! Hope you enjoy!

March 5th - Fishy Trip?????

Dewey, Wayne and Jerry headed out in Wayne's Blue Bayou (24 ft Whaler) Wednesday morning to see if there were some drum to be had. I wasn't able to go - so I can't vouch for the report, or the pictures. (not that my vouching carries all that much weight either)

Wind was out of the SSE at about 15 - wasn't much water at first because of the strong north winds over the last couple of days. Water was right at 61 degrees. Tide was incoming.

Now for the strange part. While these guys emailed me pics of each of them holding "the fish they caught" - there are errie similarities of the fish in each pic! (grin) Now - this has never been a problem when I fish with them - then again - when I fish - we catch more than one fish! Anyway .... here are the pics in question!
