Moo Cow Midnight Madness
And on our Midnight Moo Cow Madness trip we had some of the Beasts to the East!!! We delivered a first for the year…well Mr. Gary “Bigfish” Young delivered his first 50lb Moo Cow-asaurus. Gary’s been fishing almost daily with us it seems and he finally got his prize. Not only did he nail a 50, he also landed 45lb 14oz Behemoth and swept the pool. Gage Jenkins had a 42lb 2oz Rockslob and Frank “Guiness” Stoutenberg had a 40lb 4oz angry Bass to round out 5 more Moo Cows added to the list. We didn’t have the quantity of the first trip but we sure had the quality. Although Jose Ruiz had a little quantity of his own tallying 4 Stripers to 39lbs 12 oz. (orl) JOSE-jose,jose,jose, see one for each Jose:)
Capt. Ant would like to shout out to Bob-O for bringing his Viking crew (see pix) aboard the Starship…they got the true meaning of Midnight Moo Cow Madness…and no alcohol was involved, just passionate and loyal Viking fisherman who went home with about 35lbs of fillet!!! As always fantastic job by Capt. Eric and Justin and Jesse who worked the double.
