The 2009 Bite Me Bait Co. Fisherman of the Year

 

2003

Billy Bob made the jump from fresh water to salt in 2003 as he joined his dart teammate Rock Bottom

fishing "The Curve" surfcasting for stripers.

2004

"Many firsts came my way in the year since. One of my highlights of the year was my first experience with mackerel fishing." said Billy Bob. "On really light gear, mackerel can be a blast to catch." as Jimdogg shows below left.

 

The best mackerel I caught was the one I put right back out to live line and caught a 32" striper in

about 5 minutes,The first striper caught on board my boat 'Stripers Fault'." 

 

This was a day I would rather not remember !
Though we caught over 100 mackerel, it cost more than that for "Rock Bottom" to tow us home!

Dawn's early light found us chasing the birds off Long Island's east end. Plenty of fish with everyone hooking up. I got this 30 inch, with a bad bite mark near the tail. So far this year we are getting plenty of stripers but not a lot of big fish.

 

This is more like it!
