After last weeks debacle, my cousin Mark from Virigina told me not to worry and came up on fri afternoon. The 7 hour ride didn't slow him down from replacing the lower unit of the out drive on the AllyKat, having the job done before I got home from work.....all we had to do was test it out of Saturday.

Loaded up on a really nice sat morning, stopped at Cow Harbor for bait and tackle, and we were on the water at high slack. Gave the new unit a nice break in with a run over to Lloyd's. 4 different drops over two hours ranging from 10-25 ft on some nice broken bottom yielded a couple of small tog and scup.

We took advantage of the nice weather with a quick ride over to the parking lot also known as 11B. It was the middle of the outgoing, and the tide was moving well. Anchored up on the reef at 25 ft. Managed a few bigger togs, but not what we hoped for with time starting to run out for us.

Made a move further east to a deeper spot around 35 ft. Set the hook on a piece...and once we got where we wanted it was game on!

The party started as I hooked up with my 1oz TT jig to a hard fighting tog on the lightweight rod. Our first keeper tog measured 19 inches, and the fun began. For the next 45 minutes, it was almost stupid fishing with quality shorts and 3 more keepers, along with a pair of sea bass, and big porgies. Most fish were caught on the jigs, with a few on regular rigs.

Time ran out on us, so we pulled the hook happy that we finally found some fish, and a clean bill of health from the traveling mechanic who saved our season.

Wow Drew, sounds like you got out of that one easier than expected! I thought surely you'd be down for the season. Glad to hear you're back in action.

Hammered away on shorties as well. 14-18' off Marshallls. Strong west wind kept me from running north. Did bag a nice 16" Sea Bass.

Happy to hear your back OTW Alleycat

Glad to see you've got the boat back in the game so fast. You hardly missed a tide! Nice catch!up
