Rough season...maybe

Postby Have Gun Will Travel » Thu Jan 02, 2014 1:22 pm

But I had the best hunt of my life Saturday and didnt even have to leave the dock until 7am.

I took my boy out to get his first duck. Like many kids around here a good dipper shoot bring them their first bird. We do at least have plenty of dipper around. I told him I'd get it mounted for him if he liked. Of course he wanted it and when I asked what pose he replied like its hangin from a leg strap dead Daddy. I didnt know he even knew what a dead mount was. :lol3:

Heard tell that folks are asking the VMRC to move the Rockfish season into Jan since the feesh never showed in the bay in numbers. Heard anything?

You got that right man. If you see me mention a dipper shoot you know we are hard up for puddle ducks over here.


Mud, I havent heard anything on the rockfish. We had a good run of up to 35" fish late in Nov for about two weeks. After that it was a waiting game and my big boat got the cover put on. I did hear that the big boys are schooled up just north of Chinoteague.
