Well the forecast was for more than 1 knot of wind so everyone stayed in bed like pussies.

It was actually a nice day with a perfect drift, not too fast, not too slow.

Hit the water just before 6am, and it was slow going at first. But once the sun shown a few rays - BANG!

7 Snapper and 3 KY in no time.


Get out if you can, there's plenty of fish, and the KY are back in force if you like them.



P.S. I think we should have a month off fishing every year - including the commercial guys.

I made a hybrid lure which has been kicking ass for a while now.

You get a OA Flea or Catch Pocket rocket and take the hook off.

Then use the split ring to connect it to a OA Jelly Baby.


Out fishes everything else I use.

I cast it on my soft-bait rod and jig it on my jigging rod.

If you want KY, just troll it as you paddle. They can't leave it alone.

Well done Doc. I went with Mitch on Saturday and we both got a few but couldn't find the KY. I'm going to go tomorrow for one last peaceful fish before the boats come back. It's a much more enjoyable experience without having to worry about the gin palaces mowing you down.

That’s a great looking lure. Will be trying that at the weekend for sure!
