Virginia Beach Inshore Half Day

Thursday December 11th 2008 - 15:00 AM EST
Added by: Jake Hiles

08/29/08 - Today I had Gary Quon from Tady lures aboard for a half day. Gary came all the way from southern California all by himself to do some east coast product testing on his lures. Our goal today was variety and given the conditions, I think we did O.K. The wind has been whipping out of the east pretty hard all week and made conditions somewhat unfavorable, but we would overcome. We started out at the Chesapeake light tower. It is getting to be the time of the year that Jack crevelle show up there and on our second cast we found out that they are here! The tady jig worked instantly and we were bowed up on a large jack on light tackle that took some serious cranking and boat handling to get in. After a prolonged fight because of the rather small spinning tackle, we released a beautiful 46'' Virginia Saltwater tournament citation sized jack crevelle that is the first of the hopefully long chesapeake light tower season for us. After several more casts, we landed a nice spanish on the jig, hooked some others, and had some jacks pull us off into the tower and break us off on the light tackle. All in all, it was great action at the tower, but Mr Quon wanted variety so we moved to another spot. Here we caught some sea bass on the jigs, but nothing to brag about, just small ones. We looked at some buoys, but no cobias seen today. Then we tried to troll some his jigs inshore and side by side, the Tady and Sumo jigs outproduced clark spoons on the troll 4 to 1 on the taylor bluefish. I had a great time fishing with Gary today and I was very impressed at the performance of the jigs.
