Skunk run

My last two trips have been uneventful. I made it out to Kiptopeake once and the York river once. I was using live eels both times, but the only thing I got was boredom.

Although I can say that "The walking dead" on Netflix via android phone was excellent quality at Kiptopeake :) I watched an entire 45 min. episode while eeling and paddling against current. Technology is great! Too bad it cant make fish bite.


  1. I hate when the skunk wins, but chances of a big striper must be worth it. Have a great new year.

  2. Hey, at least you've gotten the yak out. I've been stuck on the beach for fishing.

    All this changes, of course, next week :)

  3. We have all been there. You can't catch fish if you don't fish.

  4. I hate getting skunked, but it happens. Fortunately not too many times in a row. Great blog, I'm following. :o)

  5. Daniel...It is worth it! My average eel caught striper is over 40". It pays big when it actually works.

    Alex...You cant complain about catching FALSE ALBACORE from the beach!

    Marty...That's why I'm heading out now. Can't catch em at home!

    Pam...I'm hoping to break that trend tonight. Thanks for following!

    Rob...yup. eel poop.

  6. I hear you man. The winds and a bad bout with being sick have sacked me the last couple of weeks. I would love to get out soon with you again on the water. Let's hope this slight warming trend will turn them on again.
