Fishing Trip

The Rusty Hook Fishing Club went on a fishing trip. We had to wake up at 5:45 in the morning. The drive from our house in Sag Harbor to the the boat located in Hampton bays took about half an hour. We boarded the Shinnecock Star (our boat) at 7:00. The Shinnecock Star disembarked at 7:35. We were all very excited for the trip. On the the trip, my Dad caught 3 Fluke and a Robin Fish, Mom caught a Robin Fish, And my brother caught 3 Fluke and 2 Robin Fish. I caught a Fluke and 3 Robin Fish. A kid on the boat caught the fish of the day, a 7 pound Fluke. An old man named George almost beat the kid with his Fluke. Georg’s fluke was only a pound off.

New Rusty Hook Record

I went to Tight Lines Tackle as usual this morning with my brother and dad to get the news on the fish and get all geared up. Snappers were on my mind today. I was even more inspired for catching them since my brother had caught one off the pier the other day. I asked Kenny, (the owner of Tight Lines Tackle) where to go for snappers. I had the pier on my mind, but we ended up going to Barcelona Point instead. I got my rod and tackle ready and cast out. A few minutes later, my brother Max had caught the first snapper of the day. There were snappers out, that was for sure! Soon, I was catching one snapper after the other. There was a small tide pool nearby, so we decided to put the fish in it. The original Rusty Hook record was 12 snappers in one day. Today I beat that record with fifteen snappers in less than two hours! Combining my snappers with the ones my brother caught, The Rusty Hook had caught 29 snappers in less than two hours plus a porgy and robin fish that my dad caught. In all, 31 fish were caught in Barcelona Point! Good luck, and I hope you catch some fish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀

What And How Many Fish did The Rusty Hook Catch At Barcelona Point Yesterday

Maxie beats his 12 snapper catching record by catching 14 snappers in a day. Yesterday The Rusty Hook caught 29 snappers off the shore of Barcelona Point. That’s the most snappers The Rusty Hook has ever caught. My dad caught a huge porgy off Barcelona Point. So in all we caught 31 fish in Sag Harbor. So GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!😀😀😀😀

What to Use to Catch a Porgy

The most reliable bait for porgies is sand worms. They go crazy for sand worms! Just be careful when putting a sand worm on a hook, for these nasty suckers can bite. Our first time using sand worms, my mom put one on her hand not knowing that they bite. We learned our lesson after she yelled in pain. Also make sure to use weights, since porgies are bottom fish. Hope you catch some fish!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Careful with those worms!)
