Thumbs up Yay me, finally caught a fish!

First things first...I am not a very good fisherman, in fact most would probably say I suck at it. I've had a few rods on the boat for a while now. Every once and a while I'll give trolling a try, mostly just because I want to futz with something. I NEVER catch anything trolling, sometimes when at anchor we break em out for the kids, catch a few flounder or catfish. Whatever, well last Sunday we took our neighbors out for a sail and their son loves to fish, so we threw a line over with a trolling lure the guys down at Cobe Marine told me to use. Mind you I've had this lure for at least 3 years...we caught TWO Rockfish, thats right, not one, but TWO!!!! I'm doing this again, taking the kid with me

And here's the proof for all you naysayers

It even looks legal.

Be careful not to filet it on the boat. I have a friend who caught a rock....anchored in Dunn cove...fileted it and was getting ready to have it for dinner when the DNR police came along side and fined him as he couldnt prove legal length.

Imagine that they have so little to do that they would do that..GGRRRRRRRR

Looks like a sea bass to me...y'alls rock fish are sure different then ours.

Way to go regardless..

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

What we did in the Gulf (Destin to Tampa Bay) was troll a lure out on the front of the third wave in the wake. Caught more fish than we could keep (King Mackerel, Wahoo, and Bonitas). Don't know how well that would work on the Bay.

Good going though. Hope you fixed something tasty with em.

It must be really a dumb fish be caught by a very good fisherman. I hope you give the fish a second choice in life. God bless its soul.

You sure that's not a striped bass? That's the problem with common names (as opposed to scientific/Latin names) for fish. One man's "rockfish" is another man's "striped bass" is another man's "striper" is another man's "linesider", etc. etc.

If you'd have just said "I caught two Morone saxatillis" we'd know exactly what you're talking about!

Ah, fish stories

It weighed so much I had to fillet this one before I could hoist it up for a picture.
