Hoopers Island, where there was decent top water bite. Mike and I developed a modified "pop and swap" routine. I'd rile a fish up with the Zara Spook, and the ones I didn't hook up would pick up Mike's jig.
Bloodsworth Island. Most places we stopped were good for a keeper or 5. Fog started building in.. . .
Target Ship, it was pretty thick and visibility was down to a tenth of a mile. Thank goodness for modern electronic. Mike, a former marine pilot said that he had shot some of the holes in the ship using an F-14. He pointed to the holes about 1.5 inches across.
I didn't realize it was a Liberty Ship until just now. My dad spent time on the Liberty Ships in WWII in the Merchant Marine.
She appears to have been the only ship to have served in the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Navy after being built for service with the United States Merchant Marine.
Many large fish were caught. Everyone aboard caught multiple fish near the 36 upper limit for commercial fish. At some point, Pete asked us to start throwing back the smaller keepers to make room in the coolers for the large ones that get a better price at the dock.
It was utterly epic fishing.
