BOAT: BLACK PEARL
CAPT. RICK CRADDICK
2ND. CAPT. LITTLE RICKY
COOK: NIDA
CREW: ALBERT, KLYE, LLOYD
TRIP: OVERNIGHTER
TARGET FISH: ALBIES
COUNT: 105 ALBIES
SIZE: BETWEEN 22 AND 33LBS.

GOT A CALL FROM CAPT. RICK ASKING ME IF I WANTED TO JUMP ON AN OVERNIGHTER, OF COURSE I SAID YUP, ALSO TOOK BETTY WITH ME, I FIGURED IT WOULD BE NICE JUST TO GET OUT ON THE WATER FOR AWHILE, DIDN'T REALLY EXCEPT WHAT WE REALLY GOT INTO.
WE STARTED TROLLING AT 5:45 JUST AT GREY LIGHT, BETTY GOT THE FIRST ALBIE OF THE DAY, IT HIT THE DECK AT 5:50, FROM THEN ON IT WAS PRETTY GOOD PICKING,, A FEW HERE, A FEW THERE.
AT ABOUT 11:15 HE METERED SOME FISH, TOLD EVERYONE TO REEL IN THE FEATHERS, THEM BAM!! ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE, IT WENT WIDE OPEN FOR ABOUT 50 MINUTES OR SO, THESE ALBIES WERE HITTING EVERYTHING WE THREW AT THEM, DINES, CHOVIES, ON 20 UP TO 40 LB. TEST.

WE NAILED OVER 40 ON THIS ONE STOP, WE HAD A PRETTY GOOD GROUP OF ANGLERS ONLY 3 FIRST TIMERS , EVERYONE CAUGHT FISH AND 3 HAD TO EAT SOME ALBIE HEARTS LOL.. CAPT. RICK GOT HOOKED UP AND HANDED IT OVER TO NIDA OUR COOK FOR HER FRIST EVER ALBIE.

WE HAD A FEW TANGLES BUT FOR THE MOST PART THE GUYS ALL DID VERY WELL, ALOT OF GUYS HELPING OUT, WHICH MADE THINGS ALOT BETTER.
I GOTTA TELL YA THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST OVERNIGHTERS I'VE EVER BEEN ON.
MY COUT WAS 11 ALBIES, BETTY HAD 4.. ONE HECK OF A TRIP.

WE NAILED AROUND 25 ON THE FEATHERS, ALL THE REST WERE ON FIN BAIT, A FEW ON THE SLIDE.

FOR THE MOST PART THE ALBIES ARE STILL TAKING THE CHOVIES OVER THE DINES.
LINE: 20 TO 30 LB. TEST
SHORT FLOURO LEADER
RUBBER CORE OR SLIDING SINKERS JUST ABOVE TO MONO TO FLOURO CONECTION.
FEATHERS: LIGHT COLORS, GREEN/YELLOW/ WHITES
I HAD A REAL BLAST.
