I got nothing worthy of entering..(unless there is a seal category) things came up around here ealry today, so I didn't make it up to P-town to see who got what..

Rich, let us know.. did the Senior Angler pull it off, again?

I fished it hard Friday night thru Saturday AM.. I had to go off cape Saturday evening/night, or I would have been back at it, but slightly north of where I was Friday night.

Sure looked perfect, real nice surf, and I could smell fish, especially half-way thru the drop.. managed a couple of "just keeper" fish, when I switched to real small yellow plastic :huh:.. tough to get it out into that surf.., but that is all that produced for me. Guy fishing down from me hooked up a schoolie, and immediatley was into a fight with a seal.. seal took about 40 bucks worth of fireline from him, before the seal won. SeaRat got the plug and the fish too. At dawn, my eyes were treated to seeing too many to count seal heads bobing in the surf.. just waiting...

I bet the Senior Angler took it again, he deserves it, with all his time in.
I just need more time!

BBJ, I feel your pain.

I got zippity. As I was packing to leave yesterday afternoon, I could smell fish in a major fashion. You know how your hand smells after lipping the first bass of the season? Like that. This is a sign, says I. Grabbed a rod, ran down to the beach, 2hours past high, perfect surf like you say. Sign alright. "L" on my forehead.

09-25-2006, 11:57 AM
I know that smell very well, and it usually pays off.

Couldnt have said it any better? Last I knew when I left Nelson's at 10:30 a keeper still hadn't been weighted in. I would like to know who won? Does anybody know?

09-25-2006, 12:32 PM
Don't tell me that please...I put two fish around 29-30 inches back.. thought they were not worthy..
was that 10:30 AM on Sunday?..

Oh Man..

Rich, please give us the update, when ya get the chance...

09-25-2006, 04:25 PM
I heard nobody weighed in?

09-26-2006, 04:18 PM
Sad truth is no keepers were brought to the scale - alot of folks fished REAL HARD, hit many spots, took long walks, saw the sun go down and come back up. Zero, zip wad, nada.

Doing a re-do this weekend - 12:01 a.m. Friday to Sunday at noon, no re-entry fee. Only the one First Place prize though - 9' Ron Arra.

BBJ :hihi:.. I'm fit ta be tied ;)..

Thanks Rich! :wave:

I am working the whole weekend this weekend.. Fri. Sat. and Sun... but, I will sqeeze in some time to fish :)..
I truly hope I am waiting at your door one of those mornings at 7 AM, with a heavy cooler...

Had a friend of mine up on Friday night 9/22. He took a 25 off a Truro Beach on a Senko.

He "coulda been a contenda"

Oh well.

Alright how did it go this weekend. I couldn't go this weekend but who won?

Welllllll, RC, I stank the place out. Not a tap. I rot....

10-01-2006, 04:00 PM
Don't fret Fred (not bad eh?). The fishing for bass up this way, I will say as a Tackle Shop owner, has been "spotty" (does that mean stink to a non-tackle shop owner?).

Again, no fish weighed in by those electing to participate. Rumor had it one participant had one fish and measured it against the "mark" on his fishing partners rod, only to find it short by an inch. The next day he re-measured the mark and found it was 30 inches, not 28 - no buddy no more.

Oh well, the fish won, we'll try it again next year, maybe a little later.

A whole multitude of things kept me from wetting a line this weekend :o.. thanks for the report.. sounds like I woulda had the same result, even if i had gotten out..

Rich, just a thought.. meybe Columbus Day weekend next year?

10-02-2006, 06:12 AM
Maybe Karl - longer weekend, later in the year, who knows but thanks for the input.

Looking forward to next year's GCDerby. This whole year has been tough out here, especially the last couple of weeks. What timing... I got out, but was blanked again. Thanks for honoring George with this Derby, I hope it becomes a long standing tradition.


10-03-2006, 11:24 PM
I second what BBJ said, George is a legend to me glad we can honor him, as long as the tournement takes place I will be in it.
