Starting over with “Emily “ at the Oak


Recommended Posts

Headed out of the County launch with Mickey from LOU after the first flush of fleet departed. Pretty quick we Discovered in short order that we had no temp/speed at ball or gps or kicker. Mickey turned out to be much like myself and just rolled with our situation as we kind of thrashed around trying this and that until we put together a bit of a program. Captain Ernie said it years and years ago and it’s still true “ when you can get one hot rod to go, you have you have all you need. Yesterday ours was a regular size diver on 1.5 out 250 in 250/300 fow pulling the classic Hammer Time flasher and Hammer Time fly. Just when Mickey began to revel in the thought we’d nearly boxed out on majors and were pulling lines the 400’ copper and the other diver that had been dead both fired. Being the gentleman I am I forced him into bringing in the copper fish while the diver fish made 3 screaming runs while I left it in the rigger rod holder and basically watched as line peeled off. After netting the copper king I handed him the diver rod with 500’ feet out and mumbled something feeble about needing to get fish out of the way and finish getting rods and boards pulled. I hope you had as much fun yesterday as I did Mickey, thanks for a load of laughsE1D05800-0645-43C6-8E4A-2DCE0087DFF3.thumb.jpeg.39b5dde8b78e27a3458c956a29695eea.jpeg
