  1. You’ll be fine. I spoke to two sheriffs at the launch and they really didn’t care.
  2. Most of the charter captains I know don’t charter full time, so that should help a bit. I don’t think it would be right to forbid chartering to locals (50 mile range maybe) but I’d agree that no out of staters or NYC folks be allowed to travel up here for fishing trips. My $.02.
  3. There was a cold front that rolled through early Friday morning that I knew was gonna make the fishing tough. Around me, no one was catching fish. Can’t win em all!!!
  4. Didn’t catch **** haha just when you think you’ve got em figured!!!
  5. I think a six foot min for folks on any boat isn’t possible. You’re still touching the net, rods, lures, beers or whatever else (just don’t boat and drive, of course). While I wouldn’t necessarily take someone from downstate out, I’m not going to suspend my brown trout season over this. I also am 100% working from home and I live alone so my exposure is less than most. I always pack my trolling motor and am never more than a couple hundred yards off shore, plus my motor only has 300 hours on it. If I have to beach my boat temporarily in someone’s yard, I will rather than risking law enforcement exposure. This is is an interesting article: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bloomberg.com/amp/news/articles/2020-03-18/99-of-those-who-died-from-virus-had-other-illness-italy-says?fbclid=IwAR1uBT16_cClk-j780dTsz38S3PthNH-IrznWYKnE6MCK3XwGQdPfE0VJ14
  6. Thanks- I have yet to get a spring king but will keep trying!😭😭😭
  7. Hm what lures were you using? That’s one thing we haven’t had were any bad hookups. I’ve always wondered why we haven’t hit a bass yet. How were the waves?
  8. Ha that was a fun game I wasn’t expecting; however, we are definitely the three stooges.
  9. I think a lot of people aren’t aware of this law. nice fish tho otherwise! Looks like the lake wasn’t too rough. Gotta love going out there when the wave forecast is less than 1’, only to find 5’ waves 😤😤😤
  10. She’s never even been fishing before so I’m trying to find a window of opportunity where she can come with me but not be cold!
  11. Ha! I was thinking perhaps Friday. Depends on the wave forecast.
  12. Ha! I’m used to salmon season where filleting outside after dark is impossible due to the mosquitoes! Just habit to bring em in and give em a tour lol
  13. Lol nice try guys. I’m on the right, owner of the house and dog ha the other guys are close friends since I was in preschool. I allow shoes on in my house 🤷‍♂️ My gf is taking the picture and witnessed her first fillet job. She held up well until I tore into the gut of the bigger fish to see what he was eating. Had 6 gobys in him. Oh and the guy on the left totally did not catch that fish lol sorry jaker!
  14. Hm the water level at Mexico point was actually low (compared to last year, although last year obvi is not a good comparison). I do not see public state launches closing. However the amount of trucks in the parking lot have far surpassed last year. Heck half the lot was full yesterday at 2pm on a Tuesday lol perhaps you could contribute that to people “working from home” lol
  15. We had the same things in the guts of our Browns too.
  16. There is no travel ban, the sheriff only recommended what not to do. He is a charter capt and said he would not charter for out of staters for now. If you’re from out of state, you’ll be fine if you have your own boat. You won’t get hassled at the launch.
  17. Riggers were 10 and 15’, 15’ fires for the 11lb brown in 20’. I do not have a fishahwk as that’s for the richer people lol that was our only rigger fire of the night
  18. Honestly idk what they were doing. Just sitting there. Didn’t check my registration, nothing. I just made sure my guys were abiding by the pfd requirement
  19. The sheriff was specific about guys outta state not traveling unfortunately, otherwise you’re more than welcome on my boat!
  20. Lol I’ve been posting pics of every one of my outings, get outta here lol
  21. Hey guys- launched at 2 or so. Two sheriffs at Mexico bay launch. Talked to them a while. They reiterated that there is nothing wrong with fishing right now. went 6/6, largest 11lb down to 15”. Released one, kept 5. Wonderbread, green emerald and some orange stinger whose name escapes me took fish. Tough conditions. 2.7mph. More toward the plant from catfish creek to find 39* water. Good time!
