HI BULL REDS AND FRIENDS Sunday

Post by Randy »

Man oh Man, what an awsome weekend. After Saturday, I figured it would be hard to beat, I have been working with Sharon, SLOWLY, as to get her out btb, Saturday was great she paddled out, the surf was calm and everything went well, she soaked her bait but no hook-ups Saturday. She got a boost in her comfidence when she came back in Saturday afternnon, through alittle bit rougher surf than when she went out.
This was Saturday's landing, This was important that she didnt flip,
squeeze sqeeze, pucker, pucker,,,,, Ahhhhhhhh she made......Seriously, this was important that she had a successful btb outing, after grooming her for several weeks, the timing was just right....
Image
Well we stayed and High Island RV Park,, so that made things even better, a shower, and food and, and, and,,,,,anyway,
After breakfast we loaded up and went back between the piers. It was almost romantic, but she had fishing on her mind.....
Image
As we parked, we met up with The Sunday TKF Gang,,,, this was be best part, greetings, shaking hands, equipment check, and we were off.
We went out approx 150 yards or so and it was slow, Aceshooter went on out further and hooked a shark,,,,,,,as the rest of us pulled anchor and went closer in,
Image
Image
Image
Image
the bait fish were all over the place. We dropped anchor @ 50 or so yards from shore.......and the sleigh rides were on.
In no time the pucker factor for me started to RISE, SHARON, got her first hook up and the rest is history now....
Image
Image
All went well, she didn't panic and she did great. I still gotta work on her pulling them in the yak,,,We gotta get over,,, "Thats nasty",,,, "Nope, I'm not touching that" ( one thing at a time)
I looked over at Herb, had a Fish_On, so I paddled over to get his picture, as I got close, I heard him rumbling doing his Clint Eastwood impression,,,,,
Go ahead, PUNK, (red) I know what your thinking, does he have 10 lb test or 30lb test..... well to tell ya the truth, through all this excitement, I don't remeber, which reel I got today,,,,,,,GO A HEAD MAKE MY DAY....;
Image
I didn't get much fishing in at first, I was keeping and eye and staying close to Sharon and Aggiesheltervet, Then those famous words screamed out,,, "FISH-ON", another, first time sleight ride.
Image
Then she got another
Image
Meantime, the gang was mopping up,,,,
Image
Image
Image
And Sharon got another one,,,,
Image
Image
Image
The pucker factor started to subside, so I tied off close to sharon, and started soaking some bait also.
Image
At one time Sharon and I both had a "fish-on"
Image
We had to pull out @ 1:30, and I think our team was up @ 50 somethin...
Sharon had another successful, landing again, and both the mini-x's did awsome....
Image

And get this, as we pulled up and opened the gate at the house, I said ,we otta stay home sometime and mow this place,,,,,,,,,,,,
She said,,,, That can wait,,,,,,,,,,,,WE ARE GOING BACK !!!!!!!

Dang I am sorry we missed ya, Yep, this whole weekend was GRRRREAT !!!!!!!!!!!

I think the best reaction to BTB fishing was from MikeSSS......
That guy drove a gazillion miles to get there, fished like crazy, caught fish and I think he is ruined now......

I can't remember word for word, but I think it was somthing like

"How do yall keep from thinking about this during the week?

MikeSSS, for me my productivity at work is the pitts, I live on this board,,,, my yard needs mowed, it is just a good thing that I dont have deed restrictions, my pay check is set for direct deposit to Academy and FTU (not Really, but it otta be)
The inside of my truck stinks,


see yall at the TOBA Tourn.

I was there Saturday and Sharon's feet were planted firmly on the beach although Randy had her kayak rigged up and ready to go all day. I guess watching all of the fish that were safely caught on Saturday convinced her. Way to go Sharon, way to conquer your fear!

Randy, my son and I got to meet Sharon a couple of weeks ago; at that point she told me she ain't ever goin' out there where there are sharks. You're a miracle worker. Next up for Randy, Ted Kennedy inviting Newt Gingrich to a slumber party.

My wife's ailing right now so we went to surfside, settling for whiting, but I'm agitating to get back up where the real fish are.

I am proud of her, yep, one step at a time though,,,,,,she wasnt to thrilled about the "milk" from the fish getting all over her,,,,,,,,
Heck I told her to just rub it all over, it is a good sunblock too.....besides being a natural fish attractant....I wonder what the sfc factor is on that stuff

I think that is Brooke's secret weapon added to the natural male attractant to begin with. That is why the women allways out fish the guys.

Randy is Sharon now your secret weapon ???
