Headed to Hobucken with Capt. Mitchell Blake of FishIBX. First time out with Mitch, and certainly not the last if he'll have me aboard again. Beautiful day for fall fishing: clear skies, cool temps, and low wind. Started the morning off casting monster popping corks trailing some of Mitch's custom plastics. Jumped two better Drum, the latter was nice enough to let us get to her to the boat. After a quick measurement (50 inches on the nose) and a pic with me grinning like an idiot (below), she slipped back into the bay to fight another day. Old drum left us alone for the rest of the day, but sent some pups our way just to keep it interesting. All reds today, which was a little surprising, but certainly not disappointing.
