Cole Nichols went after bluefish in early October with Capt. Herb Gordon (www.charterfishingvirginiabeach.com , 757 464 3974) in the lower Chesapeake. Cole used a yellow/red Phase II Scooter lure, and in Herb’s words, "Cole caught bluefish on it like you would not believe!"
Cole’s mother, Ann, is the proprietor of Crab Creek Outfitters Virginia Beach, VA, (flyfishing specialists, 757 460 1958), and she is a well-known fly-tyer. Captain Herb Gordon is a highly respected charter captain and guide for both inshore and bluewater species. Capt. Herb has a popular regional weekly TV show, "The Weekend Fisherman."
Cole had a great time catching fish with Capt. Herb, and their trip emphasizes the "take a kid fishing" idea. The Phase II Scooter & Junior lures are perfect for a youngster, or for that matter, any fisherman/woman who uses light tackle. Here are a couple pictures summarizing Cole's successful and satisfying bluefish day. Take your young buddies out on the water and teach them to catch fish with Phase II Lures!
