CBBT 8/1/09

Got up at 3am and checked the weather. Lookin' good so I met a friend of mine, Matt, left Richmond, headed for VaBch. Got on the water by 6:20. Saw NAVYIDC at the SBC. Hope you got into them! As soon as we got to the island we started catching fish. Matt got into a couple small flatties and I got about 4 or 5 toads. Jimmy Jimmy met us out there and fished for some flounder for a bit. Then he disappeared for a while. By the time he came back, I had a 14", 15", 17" 18", and 2 18.5" flounders. It was driving me nuts since limit is 19". Matt had one keeper. JimmyJimmy came back to show off his limit of spades. That's when I notice that Kayak Kevin and his bud Rob were a little ways down the bridge. I went and joined them. They were tearin' it up! However, don't think it's easy. It's tough to try and keep yourself in position. Not to mention that spades are insanely fast at stealing your bait. With some tips from Jimmy and Kevin I eventually ended up with 4 hook ups, dropping one at the boat. My first time catching spades and holy crap are they fun. Especially on light tackle (4lb test). Left them biting cuz i ran out of bait. Wind picked up significantly on the way back.
