Fishing 1/4/2021by Capt Juls on 01/05/21
Happy New Year everyone!
While I have gotten out fishing a few times over the month of December, they were not charter trips, so I didn't feel a need to blog them, as I was in Holiday mode and taking advantage of some much needed time off.
As it was for everyone, and still is, 2020 was a very trying season with the Virus that plagues the world right now. It knocked out 48 trips that were scheduled during the state shut down last spring. But, with that said, I am very happy to say that my customers last year were fantastic and kept me in business with all the interest in getting outdoors and on the lake when there was no where else to go.
I am looking forward to another great season for 2021. The early deposits are rolling in. The March dates are taken as of now, unless we have open water early in the month, and I can fill some of those dates too. I only have 4 open days in April, 12 days open in May, and 12 days left open in June. July through the rest of the season still has a lot of openings though.
If you're looking to book a date and go on a fishing adventure this year, please book your dates early, so you don't miss out!
My friends and I got out fishing for a few hours yesterday and ended up catching some not far from the Catawba ramp. Bandits, Spro Madeye 120's (no weights) 75-100 back, and P-10's with 1 oz 30/30 at a speed of 1.0-1.1mph was the ticket. Baits with whites in them did best. RC Crush, an all white one, and Pink Lemonade worked best for us.
We had to stop earlier than expected when my three batteries running the Ulterra drained down to nothing and left me with no ipilot mode. I just wasn't that mad at those fish to work that hard for them, so we went in instead. lol
I have new batteries coming to replace those crappy Interstate batteries, so hopefully, I won't have to worry about that happening to me in the spring when I have paying customers in the boat.
Hopefully, this spring will "come in like a lamb", so I can get everyone that is scheduled, out no the lake to partake in some of the best fishing this area has seen in a very long time. :)
Until then....have a safe, healthy, prosperous, and happy new year, everyone! :)
See you in the spring!
