  1. We had our hard core fishing couple with us again this morning. The weather including Hurricane Florence had been keeping us from fishing, but when it finally looked fishable we had to go. It was a Beautiful Sunny Day. We caught 7 nice Flounder up to 18 inches and put a couple in the cooler. The Flounder were finicky and the bite was lite resulting in a few lost Flounder. We also caught a 31 inch Red Drum that wasn’t big enough for the Big Fish Virginia Citation Award ( 46 inches for Red Drum ). The Big Red may not have won a trophy but it sure gave him a fight to remember and wore him out for a bit. The Big Red was released and swam off strong to fight another day. We hooked another Big Red obviously much bigger, but after a couple long runs it pulled the hook and got away. We also caught lots of the other stuff like Oyster Toads, Seabass a piece of Submerged Aquatic Vegetation and a Strangely Odd Smiling Puffer Fish. Lots of fun.

  3. We had another Beautiful Day and needed to restock our bait. After catching a couple hundred baitfish we decided to get some more Flounder. We caught our limit again with 11 Flounder total up to 19 inches today. Today I caught the most and the biggest, I win, well I guess we both win because we are eating Flounder for dinner again. This is our new Salty Dog Daisy. We also caught the normal other stuff like little Seabass, Oyster Toads and such and got back to the dock in under 4 hours. Lots of Fun, it was another good day for the Key Dreams Crew to play.
  4. We had a Beautiful Day and no charter scheduled so I took my First Mate out fishing. It was too nice to stay at the dock. First we messed around with the Spadefish and caught our limit in 15 minutes, so then we went and caught a limit of Flounder, we caught 11 Flounder total up to 21 inches. My First Mate caught the Biggest but the Captain caught the most, call it a tie. We also caught the normal other stuff like little Seabass, Oyster Toads and such and got back to the dock in short order. Lots of Fun, it was good to have a day for us to play.
  5. We had our Hard core fishing couple out with us again today. It was a windy day out of the North East Definitely not our favorite conditions but it was cooler which is what she wanted, we tried to convince them to go Sunday. We did our best to stay in protected areas to avoid the boat from rocking. We ended up catching 8 Flounder today with a few for the box. We also got some Crazy Cobia action today. They wanted to mess around with the Spadefish but it was just too windy for us. We also caught a few Lizardfish and the normal other stuff like little Seabass, Oyster Toads and such. Lots of Fun.

  9. We had a Crazy Fun Family get the kids out fishing with us this morning. It was a beautiful day on the Chesapeake Bay with light SW winds that started off a little cloudy and cool but then got sunny and warm. We started with the Flounder and got 6 up to 19 inches and 4 in the box. The youngest one had us in stitches, he said I want to just put my fishing pole in the pole holder because I’m a lazy fisherman, then when we would catch a fish he would do the fish dance. The second half of the morning we messed around with those Crazy Fighting Spadefish and ended up putting 10 in the cooler. We also caught the normal other stuff like Oyster Toads and such. Lots of Fun.
  10. Today we had Mom and Dad get their grown Son out fishing with us for a Family Fun Flounder Fishing Trip. The winds were out of the South West which is a good wind direction for fishing the Lower Chesapeake Bay, but they were a bit stronger then we like. The Day was Beautiful and the wind made it seem not so hot but it does make fishing a bit more difficult. The waves didn’t bother these guys and we all still had a Fun time. We caught 12 Flounder today up to 20 inches and 7 for the cooler. Mom caught the Biggest Flounder today. The Son caught the most Flounder today which was payback since on the last trip his Dad caught most of the Flounder. The bite was finicky but they were there. We also caught the normal variety of the other stuff like Grey Trout, Oyster toads, and such.
  11. We had a Family Fun Fishing Trip on another Beautiful Day with calm seas and light winds on the Chesapeake Bay. We got 3 Flounder up to 19 inches and 2 in the box. We had some Exciting Mayhem with a Black Tip Shark and then briefly had a Big Red Drum Bull run that pulled off. We messed around with the Spadefish and put 8 in the Cooler. We came across a good sized Cobia that was fun for everyone to watch but frustrating because he had lock jaw. We made several attempts with the eel and other live baits, bucktail and even threw cut bait at him and he wouldn’t eat. The Cobia just wasn’t in the mood so we eventually left him be for another day. We all had fun and the young man caught his Keeper Flounder for his Boy Scout Fishing Badge. We also caught the normal other stuff like Seabass, Oyster Toads, an eel and such. Back to the Dock around noon and beat the Afternoon Thunderstorm. Lots of Fun.
  12. We had a Family Fishing trip outing that was on Grandpa’s Bucket list. It was a beautiful day with light winds and calm seas on the Chesapeake Bay. We ended up catching 9 Flounder up to 20 inches and 5 for the cooler today. We messed around with the Spadefish and ended up with 10 in the box. Grandpa was the Joke teller of the family and he got the Biggest Flounder and the Biggest Spadefish, Woo Woo Go Grandpa. We also caught the normal other stuff like little Seabass, Croaker, Oyster Toads and such. Lots of Fun.
