Was out most of the weekend pulling wire at night, pulling limits every night from Thursday to last night. Went out yesterday at 4:30 pm in the Afternoon to spend a little sunshine time in the boat . Set lines at 4:45 on the bottom of grassy island and pulled across the shipping channel, well i got half way across and boom, Big hit and puling and tugging harder then most. Well I was thinking I had a cat on or something for the fight till it hit the surface:yikes: . Boy it took off dancing across the water as I pulled it to the boat. Well just as I went to reach down and grab the big guy ( about 18 inches of steel) he spit the hook at me.:rant: .What a great time, and pleasure to see a Steelie in the DR.
Was dragging wire with spoons, black and pink on the 3 foot with a snubber, 15 foot with green and pink and 30 foot with green and silver. Was a good time. got off the water with a limit by 6pm. Then I took some friends out from the Ducks and let them pull their limits. What a nice night when the winds finally died.

Maybe a net would be nice to keep handy...

I caught one last year by the saint clair light just outside the shipping channel dragging harnesses. One hell of a fight!

She's fine, thanks for asking, as long as she can keep taking Motrin....lol

She goes to see a specialist tomorrow and then they will deicde if it stays in a splint or she gets a cast.

Never caught a Steelie in the river.........yet, caught just about everything else.
