The old Oak tree.

Has been very good for blues the past month or so, but keeper sized Rock on plugs has been very tough. I had my first decent blow up on Sat near the first pier upriver of Broad creek. Today it was raining off and on from 2-3 PM. Picked up a nice blue Topwater trolling over the point. Around 3 the sun came out, so a I made my way downriver from Riva Rd bridge. I always hit the large Oak tree at the point downriver from Mike's. A fishing buddy has caught several there over the years, but I had never had any action. The tide was moving out and wind was pushing water into bank. On my third cast, I had a nice blow up that appeared to be a striper. Had the same fish blow-up for the next 3 drifts. Decided to anchor off the spot and nail the sucker. Finally after a few casts the fish slammed hard and the fight was on. A very fat healthy 22 incher. FINALLY. Hope this is the start of fall river run. The river was eerily calm when the fish hit. The sound was incredible and had my heart pumping.
