DOA Update

What a great weekend of fishing, fellowship and instruction!
I had the pleasure of getting Mark Nichols of DOA Lures here to fish one afternoon and be our special guest Sunday at Coastal Catchin’ Seminars Soft Plastics event .
We started out on Garys boat catching numerous trout ranging from 6 inches to 2 pounds fishing DOA Cal baits on DOA jig heads and VMC weighted hooks. Mark started by throwing the new Airhead riged with a 5/0 worm hook and a DOA 1/8 pinch weight. After a while he changed colors and went with the dreaded Electric Chicken! Bang – they stared eating it up. I decided to rig up Airhead too and ended up hooking up on the Pearl White rigged with a VMC 1/8 weighted 3/0 hook set up. Now we had cauoght of several baits and it was time to go with the good ole SHRIMP. I picked uo one of Marks rods already rigged with a Glow/Gold 3” shrimp and BANG – fish on! After a couple I switched to the Watermelon/ Clear Halo – Bang! Another hook-up. Not sure how many fish we caught but Damn it was fun. Anytime on the boat tugging on trout especially in good company is GREAT.


James Holloway took his stepdaughter Meg Anderson out and put her on some nice rock – 5 to be exact. They were fishing stumpy shoreline using hard plastic twitch baits. The smile on her face shows Meg was happy and I am sure step dad was too – TAKE A KID fishin’


Our seminar was a hit (I think). We discussed soft plastics rigging and fishing technics for all of our local species – including bass. We well brand specific wit Mark Nichols being our Star Guest. And man for those who have never met him – you missed it. He is a fanatical fisherman full of knowledge willing to share and funny to say the least.

For those who missed it – stay tuned. We are working on a instruction video of the event and if all works out I will have them available online – also checking on making closed captioned to per request from one of the participants.

Fishing should continue to improve – get out and get’um.  And, try to think conservative practice catch and release. ( keeping a few to eat is good too and 1 ½ - 2 lb are best)

I am on the water now – lets go. Trips available for trout, drum and maybe cobia coming up. LETS GO!
