The weather has been really nice this week so I wanted to take the girlfriend hooping again before the seasons over. It was a beautiful evening and sunset. Fished a rock off SC pier for an hour and caught a couple of Sandies. We set up at dusk and dropped a few nets. Brought some mini wine bottles for my girl, suited her up and a life jacket and had a fun time drifting around till we could retrieve the hoops. It was a slow pick on the STER and we captured at least 5 that were a credit card thickness short of clearing the end of the carapace. ( I have returned to DP and had an agree Sheriff from HP re-measure the marginal catches with my gauge and jamb the metal into the horns, thus crushing the cartilage and causing them to be a 1/4" shorter ). SO I DON"T TAKE MARGINALS. Skiff count - 2 bass and 2 STER = dinner. Debbie video taped a few clips of the night, I made a quick video about a minute long with three scenes. The last video shows her reaction to tossing back food. What a fun night! BTW - I bought two TAC lanterns you see advertise on TV. They are small and bomb out the light. Very pleased. They take three weeks to receive though. Good luck out there!!!
