The fishing has been fair the past few days, the keeping part has been tough, with lots of shorts. On the bright side, when you do get a keeper it is jumbo-size. Saturday was a perfect weather day and Tom K. was aboard, along with Keith, Eric, Doug, and father and son team, Steve and James. The guys picked at fish all day long, with Keith being hi-hook fishing with a jig and teaser. On the last drift of the day, Doug nailed a six pounder and James reeled in one over six pounds just as the three whistles blew. Sunday started with nice weather but a strong southerly wind developed. We only had a couple of keepers as I could only find shorts in a lot of different places. The afternoon became choppy and I ran back into the bay and found the first jumbo's of the year on the Pioneer Banks. Ken landed a seven pounder, Rebecca also had a seven pounder and Roger took the pool with our largest of the season so far, an 8 1/2lber., his second fish over eight pounds this year. It's time to look for Big Moe.
