Default trolling bite starting

Saturday - After a slow LTJ bite (some dinks, a couple low 20"ers, and one ~30") we moved to trolling and hooked up with not a lot of time with lines in the water.

Water temps were 39-41 degrees BTW.



Sunday - Willy P. got a nice on trolling on his new 36 Judge

Nice fish!

Love the twin Suzuki 350's.

I'm assuming they're twins and there's not a third one that can't be seen in the picture?

The trolling bite hasn't started for us yet

We were out yesterday morning scraping ice off the boat (Capt John's Boat) at 7am. We dropped 6 boat rods off the back because the "marks" we saw were 50 ft down
No bait on the screen, but we did see about 20 gannets flying today

Close to 10am; with the sun higher in the sky, we put out one board and had 4 lines off board and two deep lines.

No jellies yet

Trolled until about noon without even a knockdown.

Capt John did cook us lunch onboard, so that was great

Unfortunately, his mate from last year had to take a "real" job, so if you or anyone you know is looking for a position, let Capt John know.

Splashed my boat on Saturday afternoon. Went for a ride to make sure everything was working and check to see if we could see any activity.

Didn't mark anything north of the bridge on the eastern side.

We marked a lot of fish near Matapeake in 80' of water. They were all holding at about 60'. Water temp was a balmy 43. A few warm days should help bring the bite on.

Well; it finally happened for us. We took Bruce's boat (Hook Em) out for a shakedown cruise and picked up a nice fat 43 inch pig

Headed to a meeting tonight, so no time for the pic. I have to get it off my phone and onto the "Puter"
I'll post the photo later

Oh Heck; I can be a bit late for a meeting
First fish of the season for me.
Thanks Bruce

p.s.
We also saw the Coast Guard training vessel "Eagle".
And, I always love seeing the wake of a fishing boat headed home
