I was reluctant to post on your started topic. Every time I view the posts my mouth would start to drool for the fresh taste of Salt Water food.

Nothing beats fresh and I do mean Fresh Sea Food either caught off the hook, crabbing with a string line with either a fish head or chicken livers, or using the crab box or pyrimid traps, or the occasional walking the docks and scooping up the Blue Claws of the bulkheads.

Ahhhhhhh the good old days of digging clams in the shallows by using a clam rake or tongs, or jumping overboard after anchoring and wading in chest high water digging the clams with your feet, and then reaching down to pick it up and then placing it in a bushel basket floating in an old car inner tube.

Another thing I enjoyed doing was crabbing at night with my buddy on his 19-foot CC Bayliner on a nice calm bay under the bridges. Nothing like coming back with 2-3 bushels of crabs after midnight.

Those days are long gone now since I chose a different life style, but those memories will last a lifetime.

Great topic started by you Reeves, and I like the way it is continuing. Maybe some day I'll hit the Atlantic Coast again, but until then it is just fond memories.

I may have to dig up some pictures to post or mail to you, of my time on QCI !

In mid March the Halibut would move into the area in front of where I lived. The fishing hole was 10 minutes by boat (my small one) and round trip would take 1/2 hour....and I'd have my two Halibut in the boat !
Fishing was awesome like this up till the Dog Fish moved into the area in mid May.
Halibut were still there, but so many Dog fish were there, you couldn't get a line down to the Halibut.

It was at this time I'd start fishing another area. Took an hour to drive to the inlet, then an hour by boat to an area that would produce fish every time the line was dropped down !
Various species of Rock Fish, Ling .....mmmmmmmmmmmmm !
