Mama got a Rock! by Beth Synowiec

Dec 30, 2018 

It’s been a while since I went fishing for a rockfish . Well today, that needed to change and we needed to go try for a big one. So Katie , Kevin, & I headed out of Cape Charles late this morning for our first rockfish trip for this year. I’m tickled to say, it was a successful trip! The 48 lb 12 ounce fish hit on a planar board with a live eel. This is my sixth species citation for the year which also earns me a State of Virginia Expert Angler Award for 2018. Since this is my seventh time earning this award, I am dedicating the fish and the award to my mother because seven was her lucky number & she was my biggest fan. I feel in my heart that she would have been very proud of me today. Below are two photos. My husband refers to the first photo as my “pure joy “ shot. Happy New Year Everyone & Tight Lines 💕🐟
