Thread: More Paddle Patch Kids

    Default More Paddle Patch Kids

    Once again had to disappoint my clients with nothing even close to a ping pong paddle. And once again just kept on coming up with these really ugly and funny looking fish. Sure wish they'd leave my favorite ping pong paddles alone.

    Unfortunately Melissa ended up having to take that 27.2 lb. yelloweye up to the Jackpot Halibut Derby cabin and get it weighed on the official scale so she could go through the laborious process of getting an ADF&G Trophy Fish Certificate to hang on her wall. I feel like I'm tarnishing my spotless reputation by catching three Trophy Fish Certificate qualifiers in the last couple of weeks.

    I may have to set up an appointment to join you on your boat after I get back from Afghanistan in september. I have not pulled a quality fish out in a while

    Well don't forget that I really specialize in catching the smallest fish possible. But apparently my being a "novice" at doing it is just getting me into trouble catching what most people consider "quality fish" like in the pictures. I'm not quite sure what's so special about them!

    Well Muttley, I have only really put a good amount of pressure fishing the supermarket which dont get me wrong usually yields a 100% success rate but the price of bait tends to get expensive and lets not forget how crowded that fishing hole gets. I will shoot you a PM to see what kind of fun we can get into as I want to take my wife along with me (she also just got back from the sandbox) and she has never fished for "larger" species of fish.. hell she has only been fishing 1 other time and that was when we were home on R&R leave and I took her fishing for some kokanee in western washington (which she actually enjoyed doing).

    Yeah, I thought about Tim when Melissa pulled that one in. I felt bad for him, but not THAT bad! LOL!

    The 47 pounder was 50" and the 49 pounder was 51", but they both were really fat.

    Thanks. Nice job on yours, too!!!

    Yeah, we actually got halibut, too, but I was ashamed to post a picture of a catch of halibut that weren't ping pong paddles (all were about 20 lbs.). Seems to tarnish my reputation. There's a copper and black rockfish in there as well:

    And we probably could have gotten some salmon, too, because there was a s#*t ton of bait around in the shallows near where we were and I kept asking them if they wanted to go try for some, but they were dead set on trying to catch the big halibut that were feeding on the little ping pong paddles we were so desperately trying to catch.
