Fishy Jackson, Father Figure Chris
Time/Tide: 8 – 10:15 AM/
The Fishtilian had planned to wait a few weeks for some theoretical Tommy Cods and Sturgeon to move into the area before returning to his Post at the Hudson, yet Fishy found himself back at the scene less than a week later…this time with the Father Figure Chris of the Hudson. Much like the previous 8 attempts, this outing ended with a goose-egg in the Tommy Column.
3 dozen Sandworms barely lasted over 2 hours due to the fast action and bait-stealing. It became evident early on that the majority of the bait-stealing nibbles could be attributed to the presence of Tomcod Ghosts, arisen from the dead to haunt Fishy Jackson on Halloween. Apparently the Ghosts of dead Tomcods are far hungrier than the theoretical living Tomcods of the Hudson.
Father Figure Chris was credited with the first White Perch catches of his career, and was thus encouraged to keep the hook as a memento, much like a baseball player after their first big league hit.
Results: 30+ Mix of Perch and Schoolies, 1 Eel, many dead Tomcod Ghost nibbles, 0 living Tomcods
