A little something to cure boredom

Hello, everyone. Tight Line Jr. here.

Ol’ Tight Line says hello to everyone and he wants you to know he’s doing fine.

Here’s a rainy day story. My buddy was so bored from all the rain Monday, he took a live worm and tossed it off his back yard porch into the grass.

The chickens next door went crazy chasing the worm. It looked like a mini NASCAR race with all the chickens chasing that one worm. My buddy said, "Man I’ve never seen anyone fish for chickens before."

He spent the rest of the day getting the drag set on his new reel.

Here are a few fishing reports from the coast. Capt. Johnny Woods, fishing with Bonnie and Ben, landed 14 spottail bass and had two catch and release spottails which were 27 inches long.

Rob Whitney and his pal Joel Osteen were fishing with their sons Palmer and Kyle and netted 20 whiting, one summer trout and one catch and release 36-inch spottail. I bet those young fellows had a good time.

"Big Jimmy," Nate Jones and Albert Anderson caught 90 whiting so I’m going to Jimmy’s house for a fish fry.

Rayburn and John at Yellow Bluff Marina have live shrimp, minnows and fiddlers. Barney, Joe and Clay at Sunbury Crab Co. and Marina have live shrimp and minnows and fresh refrigerated bait. Halfmoon Marina has live shrimp.

So remember what Ol’ Tight Line says and get out there and get fishing. And if you do remember to keep a tight line. I say hit the docks, keep a sharp eye and watch that cork go down.

Your friend,

Tightline Jr.
