Looks like you're having lots of fun.
Bluefish are like mini sharks, they will bite anything and give a good fish.
Blue crabs are delicious eating. Catch a few and enjoy them with Old Bay seasoning.

I didn't realize you were reporting here, until you pointed it out to me. I'm glad I caught a few on FB. It's great to read them all here! Great reports, Matt.

What an incredible fishery, down there. I get tired of the hot sun, real fast though.

Glad to hear you're back home safely.
Use the quarantine to get your fishing rods, reels, lines, lures ready.
We look forward seeing your reports back on Champlain.
Salmons, lakers, and anything with fins ... beware.

5/1/2020 sitting here my ist day in quarantine what to do. just relaxing now and resting. lost my cousin freind and brother all in one before i left there so i guess i wont be getting over that to soon. i started working on something when i was in the hospital and continued this winter and now will try to concentrate on it again. want to thank all my friends on the forum for there keeping me positive during my last 8 months of ups and downs. i have made lots of friends here on lcu and i believe i am what i am today because of the lcu. my grand children look at me not only as pa pa but a fishing legend now. i cant describe my feelings on this as i get so many requests even for autographs which started our friend putting my pics on apparrel mugs and other things. im just a simple fisherman that loves fishing in the greatest sport in the world. i will continue to post here and on facebook where i have increasing. fishing friends also. my health right now is very good thanks to florida the sunshine state. im going to continue to fight this cancer and yes im feeling okay to fish in boats again with so many invites. just have to have prior notice. god bless all.
