me and the wife went fishing on a boat last weekend,we were fishing out of crisfield md. on the cap. rocky.we both caught our limit of croaker one spot and the wife caught a flounder while we caught a lot of fish it still didn't seem like as much fun or satisfying as fishing from the pier while we did catch enough to feed family and some select neighbers.it just seems like it was too easy i mean you are sitting rite on top of the fish and all you had to do was reel them in.i did become a fan of circle hooks tho,didn't lose any while others around us did.started useing circle hooks because the wife doesn't really set the hook so i switched us both to circle hooks.question can i still set the hook or get used to not setting the hook and just reel in?

Most of the time you should resist the temptation, and let the fish do the work. Takes a bit of the "expertise" out of fishing, but then again it ain't just about fishing. If your chatting with a neighbor, and the bite comes on a "J", missed fish. Fishing might soon be considered the next "social disease".

Just curious -- boat info?

I agree, there's a difference between finding and catching fish from shore and catching froma headboat. I prefer fishing solo from shore and with my son (12) from a boat. Would appreciate any info you could provide on the headboat -- name, phone, schedule, cost, whether bait provided. It sounds like they know what they're doing. Would you recommend them? Thanks!! -- Foodfan
