west bay

so me and troutout hit west this morning at sunup. hit a few spots for nada then ducked into a cove. the water was so high i figured the fish would be way up in there. did some drifting and finally i hook a good size trout maybe 20-22". as i'm fighting it around the other side of the boat Jim pushes me into the water. jk. i was trying to step down from the front deck and wasn't looking with nowhere to step due to all the wade gear etc. not wanting to break an ankle or bust my head open, forward momentum and instinct sent me over the side with the fish still on. luckily the water was still wet wadable and only 3-4' deep. jim takes my reel but the fish breaks off. we ended up catching a few more good trout to 20" and a 18" flounder on plastic. lost an iPhone in the process but had some spares at home and good to go after swappin SIM cards. after all these years i can still pull off a dumb stunt every now and then. for posterity caught a 21" red and a 18" sheepie (plastic-go figure) plus some dinks and rats last weekend

Glad no one got hurt . Sounds like a good day on the water nonetheless. My last spill was in Baffin in last winter. I have these humungous wading boots that are cumbersome. I tripped and landed on my face with waders full of cold water.

Good to see a west bay report, yeah it used to be just wet clothes, now it's a pricey phone with all the contacts, etc...
Glad you guys got and caught some.

Glad you are ok. Been a while since I fell off the boat but came real close a couple weeks ago while push poling my buddy down the Northshore flats. It was a little bumpy from the NE winds, my buddy stepped one way after hooking a nice red, I leaned the other and if it wasn't for the push pole stuck in the soft sand/mud I would have gone flying off the poling platform. The good news is that he landed the fish and I stayed dry.

That's why I love my boat. All gear including extra rods are stowed away below deck. Been there done that with a cluttered deck. I'd be more prone to twisting an ankle.

^^this...I'm a stickler for keeping everything stowed on the boat. All my rod holders are under gunnel so I don't even have rods sticking up in the air. Lots of storage room in hatches to eat up all the gear we bring.

Just out of curiosity, is a $1,000 IPhone covered under your boating insurance?
