Record Rockfish On Memorial Day 2017

My youngest son Tim, his buddy Matt and I went rockfishing today on Frank Carver's Loosen Up out of Deale, MD.

I first went out with Frank going back to the early 1980s with the famous "Fishin Groene's" and always had a great time.

We had a record day today!  We left out of Happy Harbor at 5:50am and by 6:48am we had caught our limit!  I have never hit our limit THAT quickly!

Below are some pictures and a movie.

Tim won the "gold hook award" by Captain Frank for landing the biggest fish for the day's outing.

 Above is is Kathy, who helped out as well and showed us some amazing photos!, with Matt, Tim and me.

We were also VERY lucky that Captain Bryan Schmitt decided to mate for his buddy Frank.  Just last week - per the FLW - Fishing League Worldwide:  "LA CROSSE, Wis. – Pro Bryan Schmitt of Deale, Maryland, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 14 pounds, 10 ounces Sunday to win the FLW Tour at the Mississippi River presented by Evinrude. Schmitt’s four-day total of 20 bass weighing 61 pounds, 6 ounces, was enough to edge second-place pro Joshua Weaver of Macon, Georgia, and win the top prize of $125,000 in the four-day event that featured 160 of the world’s best bass anglers competing in La Crosse."

Huge thanks to Captain Frank, Captain Bryan and Kathy for all their help
