      Nice haul buddy!!
    2. We get those big jolt heads and the pretty blue Porgies. They do have a few extra bones:) they eat mighty good too. Thanks Arty.
    3. They are a pain in the butt to clean and trying to get rid of all bones. We decided only to keep the big ones 11 inches and up, after we filet them skin and debone ...more there’s hardly nothing left. Captain you’re welcome anytime for a fish fry. We had to make up for last weekend. The swell from that hurricane really shut down the Fluke. Season for Fluke closed Saturday.

  4. Chris was away fishing for Sturgeon so Capt. John and I put together a nice catch. We couldn’t resist the Snapper Blues on the way in. 20 minutes and we had our ...more 30 for another double limit species for the day. Very Fun

    Double Limit Fluke, Blues, Black Sea Bass with a Gulp Bluefish strips

    1. ...seriously?? hahaha
    2. It’s like pulling teeth just to get him to give me gas money
    3. Thanks Arty, that's kinda what I figured by what he posts and says! πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚LMAO
    4. yeah right...john has lost about $200 of my lead sinkers, jigs, etc. over the past two seasons cause he doesn't know how to fish plus his family would've ...more starved to death if i wasn't filling his cooler every weekend hahaha
    5. @ Robert Coleman No Chris is very cheap when it comes to fishing unless he's fishing with us he uses our Gulp and we use some of his jigs. We had to buy our ...more own jigs and Gulp. I'm the only one who has only lost 1 jig of his and it had hardly any paint left on it. Sometimes I wonder if the paint really matters. I still caught fish with hardly any paint left on thew jig head.
    6. Awesome! Used to love catching them when I lived out there!
    7. Rich Pardy 0
      Slayed them!!

      Art, It was a great day. Hope to participate again next year.
    3. Hopefully you have a patio boat some guys are handicapped and in wheelchairs Andrew. The Knee Deep Club does a lot of good things for the lake as well as others. ...more So please if you live in the area and or fish the lake join the club it's only $25 a year or $30 for the family. Check out the website at KDC.org

      sounds like a great day Arthur! id like to participate next year since army guys are probably the coolest to hang out with! my brother's a vet and I love the ...more idea for guys that might not otherwise be able to get out on the water
    5. That would be nice
    6. It's a miracle you caught anything on that lake on the weekend! They should close the lake to all not in Heros on the Water event and just let all the vets ...more enjoy the day!
    7. Sounds good
    8. Bring him right on down Arty . He fishes in my boat no charge!!!
    9. They arrived late, we couldn't even start fishing until 10:30 am. By then all of the Googans and weekend warriors were out with all of the jet ski's and ...more tubers. Still a fun time. @ Capt. Morris I'm trying to set up a trip for myself and my son down there for some saltwater action. He suffers from PTSD after Iraq ruined him. Thanks to our government and the VA. It's up to me now to try to pick up the pieces and try to get my son back together.
    10. Arty if you get some down here , I will take them out. I do trips for project healing waters and make a wish.

I am a Fishaholic, I go crazy if I can't fish. My favorite fish are anything that swims and puts up a good fight.
