Fishing Chronicles with Roperdoc and Josh

Was fortunate to fish with another one of GON’s (Georgia Outdoor News) finest (Roperdoc) and his son Josh last Friday.  First I have to tell you that Eddie (Roperdoc) is a world class outdoorsman, and was just as fun to listen to as to fish with. Some of you know of his expertise as a veterinarian, but his knowledge doesn’t end there.  As I munched on the Doc’s deer jerky, (and other culinary fishing foods), I got to listen to some great hunting and fishing stories and the nuances of pursuing different species.  Doc also has a first class son, who by the way did some serious damage and gave Pop a run for his money, including big fish. While we piled up some fish, the bite was a little tough.  Eddie and Josh worked pretty hard to get bit.  Live shrimp, DOA shrimp, paddletails, and mud minnows all caught their share.  At times the “bite window” was only 2 foot wide and these guys put it there time after time.  It was one of those days we stayed on the trolling motor all day,  and never reached in the anchor locker.  Although we really hadn’t planned on flounder fishing, we chunked some plastics in the flattie stuff and knocked off three pretty quick before heading to the hill.  Eddie and Josh, aside from being excellent anglers, are what the outdoors and having a big time are all about! Thanks guys for a super day on the water!
