Jake, Robert and Martha - you folks look like you're having a whale of a time out on the water.
The rewards of a lifetime of good work. Good on ya!
And, that's one of the few photos I've ever seen of Jake wearing something other than work boots and his white 'Jake' hat. 
Thanks for the stories and a glimpse of the other side of the dusty side.

Since we're sharing fish stories, here's a couple big Red Drum I caught in Hatteras in the surf last week:

Those are some bull redfish!  Iíd read somewhere that you catch them on cut bait on the Atlantic side?  I have heard that Hatteras is a Mecca for those critters, and they look real good sized too.  Definite ďTwo Handers.Ē  

We go every year (except last year due to stuff) to the Dixey Bar, at Mobile.  It used to have some of the best redfish in the world, about the same reputation as Hatteras.  I remember several years ago in the Fall, my brother and I grudge fished for them and estimated we caught over 2,000 lbs in only one week.  All but one was released alive, but one was gut hooked and didnít survive.  My brotherís arm stayed numb for more than six weeks, he even had to go see a Doctor, who gave him zero sympathy.   :D

Some years ago, the redfish of all sizes started to decline, Iím not sure why, because they are slot limit fish and very highly regulated by the Fish and Game.   Some people blame the decline on the red tide, some on the commercial fishing and restaurants, but I donít know.  We catch them on live croakers, ones maybe about a half pound or so, and everybody calls croakers ďRedfish CandyĒ.

Yep, caught these two on different nights and yes with cut bait on the Atlantic side. Not caught at the infamous Cape Point, although that is arguably the best spot in North America for surf fishing. The point has been closed to ORV access and even fishermen on foot after dark from ~ May to September. The stated reason is that oystercatcher bird nesting was observed; but speculation is that it's more about people control than bird protection, especially considering the timing during peak drum fishing and vacationers.

Anyway, the kids caught some pinfish at the marina and I cut them into thirds, put on a circle hook heaved as far as possible. You can catch plenty of drum sound side, but typically they are "puppy drum," or slot size fish (18" to 27").

Love the fishing tales.
Back when we had the florida house, I went for grunts with a friend.
Caught a bunch and my friend caught a nice king mackerel.
The captain asked what we wanted done with it, my friend didnt want any so  I had him cut steaks.
Never had eaten one but we are game for most anything.
I found a recipe on line for a rub, used it, broiled them in our toaster oven and they were delicious.
Used to go on a head boat out of Gloucester mass for cod and pollock,  but havent gne for 10 yrs or so.
My first trip with 2 other guys was the best as we split the fillets when we got home and had 110 pounds of fillets apiece about 2/3 cod.
LOts of good eating and gifting to friends.

I just watched a River Monsters show with Jeremy Wade where he went alligator gar fishing in Texas.  Those are some big fish.  I remember years ago I was bass fishing in guntersville in a hundred acre weed patch and we saw something flapping on the surface out in the middle. I remarked it looked like a big green paper plate sticking up on its edge, and was about that size.  It was weird.  So we eased over to it with the trolling motor and we noticed it looked like the dorsal fin, but it was just too big.  As we got closer, the fin just faded under the weed mat and disappeared!  We decided it had to be the fin of a huge alligator gar, and it was a monster. Iíd sure like to catch one that big. 

Iíve wondered why everyone doesnít fish for cod, where they are available.  Maybe they do.  That would be some good eating.

The excitement never ends....a couple weeks ago I was coming home and something kind of unexpected happened.  I was only going 60 mph down the road when the entire wheel came off.  The lug nut studs broke.  It is surprising how well a trailer will roll on just the disk brake rotor.  

You know those deep gouges in the highway you occasionally see and wonder how they got there?  Well, hereís mine.

Not cool.  Had that happen on a tandem axle with my tractor on it.  Probably better to occur on a tandem than single axle!

   I can well relate to that as my whole left boat trailer wheel and hub came off about 5-6 weeks ago about 2 miles from home about 7:00 am in the construction zone where they had the road narrowed to one lane in a big curve. :( Fortunately the bottom brace on the trailer was low enough to to keep the foot of the motor from hitting and destroying it. I ended up getting a rollback to come take me home and got a new hub and bearings and got back on the road by about 3:00 pm and back to the lake to take up my catfish lines. It is a sick feeling to look back and see the tire passing you. I am glad nobody was hurt and the damage was no worse than it was.
