Today I buttoned down and stored all the traps and re-washed the boat. (In the rain again!), it has been a remarkable year for my first year hooping. I learned a ton, with help from BD friends (shout out to all who helped-Doghouse26, Rodrage, Madrugador, Billy L., Flomar), Every little bit of information helped! You guys north of here have a different fishery! Seemed like a reasonable crawl last night, mostly plastered females. Lots of people getting in last licks. I tried a day/evening set from 5 PM-6:30, for nothing. Stuck with it, Ended up limiting by around 10. Interesting, I tried a new spot on Friday and had a 3 keepers in-a-pot set. Thought I would give it a shot again, just to see, and nothing last night. I had hopped to go out tonight and get one last day in, but I decided I am pretty much done! Washing the boat at 2AM takes it's toll. I look forward to next October, I plan on hitting it hard early! Until then, bring on the YT, WSB, BFT, YFT, Dorado, (Dare I say?) Wahoo?

Congratulations you've got it down now great job on the early limit! We doubled again last night but it took a litle while longer and we got 3 out of the hole you left and we passed an extra on to a Kayak buddy who was having a tough night. Write down some notes from this year as you will probably forget them by the next opener. I also want to thank the guys on the board for all their reports and helpful hints they gave me throughout the season it was a pretty good year! Oh yeah remember Loose Lips Sink Ships see you next season.

Dang, am I interpreting the regs wrong? I read them as the season ending at 12am last night/this morning. If I’m reading these wrong, I’m bummed because I would have went tonight.

The regulations say through the first Wednesday after March 15th so I would think all day Wednesday until 12:01 Thursday Morning

It was a tough night, tho I may have earned some karma points by releasing two barely legals early on. As it was my last night of the season, I stayed out until slack tide at 0130, ending up with five nice keepers, in part thx to your charity. I appreciate the camaraderie and useful info, see you next season. All honey hole info is safe - Loose tweets sink fleets

That's awesome glad you got them! What's funny is that little spot only went richter with the heavy rain it had always been a ho-hummer but I don't know if the dredge had something to do with it. That whole side of the channel went off but I think it did slow down after a couple of hundred or so were pulled out of there! Too bad you don't have any room for an extra bucket; we put the "Barelys" in there and do a little culling if we can on the last set.

And yes that Karma is for real as our set before we passed you the bug was a 0 but the next and final was a 4 spot that topped us off and sent us home
