Big fish to over 40 pounds continue to be caught by trolling, chunldng a0d drift- eys still ing eels. The Eights, O erfalls Shoal and the 60-Foot blough have all produced trophies.

The same strong current that made the rockfish action so good did nothing for the tog bite. We saw two keepers taken and Ric had both of them. On Saturday, Roger joined us and we were back at the Third Island about a half hour earlier. We found a bigger class of rock- fish anxious to eat Wind- Cheaters. By 8 a.m., we had six in the box measuring up to 30 inches With the slow tog bite the day before we decided to come in early and had the boat washed and the fish cleaned be- fore noon. While Ric cleaned the boat and Roger cleaned the fish, I sat in a wicker chair in the sun and gave them the benefit of my ac- cumulated wisdom. Sometimes it is good to be the-old man. Of all the different types of fishing I have done over the years, I enjoy catching rockfish on light tackle at the CBBT more than any of the others. In- clude my two sons and I do be- lieve it is the most enjoyable fishing experience I can have. The best is yet to come I hope you have not winter- ized the boat, because we have not seen the best of the rockfish run. Reports from as far north as Long Island indicate stripers are still being caught from both beach and boat. Some of the hottest action has been in the SUBMITTED PHOTO the Outer Wall. The 30-inch bruiser ate a ocean close to shore with huge schools of rockfish working un- der diving birds. So far in Delaware, only a few rock have been caught from the ocean, and it is possible we could have exciting action up tO Christmas and beyond. Even > you have put the boat away, it is still possible to go out ona char- ter or head boat and get in on the fun.

If your goal is to tone'up and get in better shape, weight training is a must. Weight lifting will improve your overall body composition, and studies prove that weight train- ing boosts your metabolism for hours after you're finished work- ing out, while cardio will only burn calories for short periods of time. When you combine the two together, you have a deadly metabolic combination. Cardio must be challenging It's important to understand that in order to get results from your cardio workouts, you have to work outside your comfort zone. If you focus on time and distance alone, you'll never reach your full potential. In- stead, fend a level of intensity that's hard but doable, and be sure to change it as your work- out gets easier. Keep in mind, it only takes a couple weeks for your body to get used to your workouts, so be sure to throw it a curve ball every two to three weeks, and you'll avoid periods of no progress. Shorter, intense sessions work bet- ter than long distance. Don't fall into the more is bet- ter trap when it comes to cardio; instead, focus on shorter, more intense sessions from 15 to 45 minutes for best fat-burning re- sults. Too often, people with good intentions believe that if they do massive amounts of car- dio, they'll have a better chance of getting in shape, when actual- ly they're burning muscle, de- stroying the body's ability to burn fat. On the other hand, shorter, more intense sessions will burn fat and spare muscle, accelerating your metabolism. Remember, bigger muscles burn more fat, and too much cardio can make you skinny-fat. Cardio is not an excuse to eat what- ever you want Most people work out because: they want to look good, be healthy and enjoy some of the guilty pleasures in life, but you have to understand that just be cause you pay your dues in the gym or on the cardio deck, it's not an excuse to eat whatever :: you want all the time. Try and eat a sensible diet 85 percent of the time and treat yourself the, other 15 percent of the time. You'll get much better results from your cardio workouts, and you'll appreciate eating what " you want now and then as a treat andnot a lifestyle. Put all these pieces together : and maximize your cardio work- outs for best results. Chris Antonio is a personal trainer and former world-class weightlifter.
