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!!!

Right on, great little night on the water. That is the right way to measure them BTW. Lotsa of people get caught up on that one.

Man, that's a great quick trip with the girl!

Way to go!

X2 about throwing close shorts back in the drink.

I'm on the fence about marrying a girl that likes to fish cause I'm married to one.

You heard to pros in the comments above. The cons are: my wife's gear are nicer than mine. She always in my face when she is out-fishing me. I hate it when she hooks up a fresh one and then turns to me and ask " do you wanna reel this one in honey?"

That is hysterical!

Could be true. One of the best fisherman I ever knew went on our charter every
month to SCI. She would out fish everyone. Here name was Julie.( I think she has a plant business now called Jungle Julie).

Mine girl can't, YET.
