Prepping for the season opener

Hit the water with Shane, Adam, Bust’em Billy, and Wayne recently and we searched structure in the channels of the Chesapeake Bay.  We found water temps between 47 and 50 degrees.  All of our fish were caught in the 50 degree water and that is where we found a lot of gannets also.  Wayne hooked a fish of a lifetime.  He fought his fish for a long time and when he managed to get the fish to the side of the boat, his barbless hook allowed the fish to easily shake the hook.  Blue and purple were the magic colors for this trip and for some reason you needed these colors in your G-Eye Jig or your Bust’em Bait to get bit.  It was a great day with some good friends….
