By Capt. Jim Brincefield

For our 109th trip of the 2003 season we welcomed “Uncle” Ed “The 6 Foot Pole” Mechlinski and friends from Stewartstown, PA for a total of 7 anglers. First, we went chumming at “The Gooses” with light spinning tackle. We used Razor Clams and cut Bunker for hook bait fished from standard chumming rigs. We caught 14 portly Striped Bass (“Rockfish”) from 18″ – 24″ (our limit) plus our boat fish at this location. We also released several undersized Rockfish. Then we went bottom fishing at Cook’s Point with light spinning tackle. We used Razor Clams, Squid, and Bloodworms for hook bait fished from standard bottom rigs. We caught 200 medium and jumbo Norfolk “Slab” Spot. Capt. Al “The Livin’ Legend” Jones (on far left) served as 1st Mate today.

For our 107th trip of the 2003 season we welcomed the Northern Virginia Big Brothers/Little Brothers and Big Sisters/Little Sisters Charity Event. Thank you to Northern VA CCA for your support and sponsorship of this event as it is such a worthy cause. Also, thanks to the Northern VA CCA for assistance with the mating duties and helping us clean the fish. Also thanks to Steve & Jackie Linville of NOVA CCA who organize this event every year – “that’s what it’s all about”! We went on a day bottom fishing excursion to “The Diamonds”. It was a very choppy day so we had to come back in a little earlier than planned. We used light spinning tackle rigged with standard bottom rigs. We baited up with Bloodworms, Squid, and Razor Clams. It was a good bite as we filled the coolers with medium and jumbo Norfolk “Slab” Spot. “Earl and “Ralph” cheered us as we pulled back into the slip. Capt. Karl Bieberich served as 1st Mate (on far right).
