We pulled away from the docks early today. We arrived at the bait docks around 830. At that time the charter master handed out everyone a welcome bag with hooks-finger tape and a few assorted goodies along with everyone getting a bluefin jig with the good hooks to replace the bad hooks they come with. Also everyone received a t-shirt and then the raffle began. Duffel bags- sweet t-shirts good for sun protection and a hole slew of assorted prices. Then the big prizes everyone had their number put back in a hat and one lucky angler won a 30 two speed Avet reel and two other lucky anglers won a rail rod for fishing heavy line with jigs. The bait was on the smaller side but not the smallest I have seen. I will say the bait looks really good. We start fishing around 7 tonight. Stay tuned for on the water reports.
