Ok check this out, Gene is an old friend of over twenty years now, he’s been guiding a long time and is a great guide, writer and lecturer. We first met and fished together back in Marthas Vineyard, over twenty years ago. I remember those days vividly catching big bass together off his center console that he trailered up, sliding alongside the rips and swinging large bucktail deceivers with sinking shooting heads into schools of exploding squid. We crushed some nice bass in the twenty to thirty pound range, and back then those were the largest stripers I ever caught on fly. But this pic takes the cake, last weekend he guided one of his clients to three bass over forty, I The largest fish was 46 pounds.
“So 3 fish in one day – 40lbs 44lbs and 46 lbs all in four hours in one trip – fishing outside the schools – The 44 and 46 came in back to back casts !!!” – Capt Gene Quigley
The flies used were large Beast Fleyes, designed by Bob Popovics and custom-tied by Andrew Warshawer, who by the way, is an amazing young fly tier, follow him on instagram. If you are ever back east give Capt Gene Quigley of Shore Catch Guiding Service a call for the bass of a life time, tell him Al Q sent ya….LOL
