baitwell pump is broke

let's see how long I can make it before I have to fix it.  I haven't bought or caught a shad yet.  All the stripers that we have caught have been on artificial lures and flies.   They are going to jack the water up tomorrow so I've heard, doubling the flow.   Let's see what that does to my bite.   Usually when the water rises like that another charge of fish makes a run up the river.   I'll be waiting on them with bent rods.......even that takes fixing the baitwell pump.

epic shake down cruise

My shake down cruise started a little slow but when I found 'em, wow.   On 4 different stops I caught at least 10 on 10 casts.   Over 100 fish, by myself, in less than 4 hours, all on jigs, flies and top water.
Really as good as it gets.
Want some?   Shaping up to be the best season ever on the Roanoke........ if they just don't mess with the water! Give me a ring, we have openings.

pics from Justin......

......oh, wait, that's not Justin, that was today inshore in Costa Rica, nice cubera and rooster.   Offshore a handfull of sails and a big dorado
 Capt. Justin Haddock's pics from today.   Smiling faces all over.

spring has sprung. Confirmed

Confirmed.   I'm here to see it.   Left some good fishing in Costa Rica and it sounds like I'm coming home to some good fishing here.   Capt. Just Haddock just called in with his first report  of the year with some pics to follow, but 70+ stripers in a half day aint too shabby. 
see you on the Roanoke shortly.
