They're Back!

What with a nice Fall day, a distinct lack of wind, and some spare time, I called Trevor, and we took off fishing this afternoon.  This weird ship, that looks like some kind of research boat, was operating offshore of "Location X."  Servicing the CBOS buoys maybe?
Anyway, they're back refers to the Speckled or Spotted Trout (Cynoscion nebulosis), which in years past have repeatedly shown up in the deep, warm waters of "Location X" right around the end of October or the beginning of November.  Trevor caught the first one, this little dinky 18 inch fish...
...while I caught this massive 20 inch specimen.  Conveniently enough, "Location X" is seen in the background.  Remind me to comb my hair the next time I catch a picture fish.
We also caught 1 keeper Striped Bass, a chunky 19 inch fish, about 10 between 14 and 17 inches, a couple of white perch, and this fine Bar Dog, which Trevor kept for supper.

We stayed through a fine sunset, going from gold...
to this pinkish sherbert color.  There was a little left in sky when we arrived back at the harbor.
