The 'WX' had small craft advisory notice outside of the Lesner, but was nice enough for Matt and I to head out on a maiden voyage on the 'Sea Weasel' as I have come to affectionately call our new mode of marine transportation. We explored all of Lynnhaven (minus Crab Creek or Western Branch side). Matt bottom bounced or jigged the bottom while I used a 400grain intermediate line with a heavy barbell black & red flashed clouser thats about 5inches in length to get down to the bottom of the channel while we drifted wit the tide & current. Got a few bumps and hits but no hookups as we free drifted down Keeling Drain towards the tennis courts. Soon as we moved from the tennis courts to the shelf opposite of the tennis courts and up the channel, it was fish madness. Specks, croaker, and crabs!!!
But no tailing red drum? Is it too soon, or is this going to be another summer like last year, where all the drum hangout over at Eastern Shore?
We stayed out till 22:30 and finally motored back. Along our transit back, we saw some amazing bright shooting meteorites over Lynnhaven Bay, which was AWESOME!. They were unusually bright, as we could clearly make them out through the overcast moon lit night and light polluted horizon over the Ocean front.
As we came back to the dock, we saw some action and boils but too tired & hungry to pursue. Saw lots of raccoons and red foxes. No photos since only had my cell camera. Next time Minion should be back from Coronado, and we'll have his High ISO camera for some night shots.
