Monday morning brought Ian down for a first time trip with me. We stopped to get a chance at a bass or two on the way out. It took three casts to put the first fish in the boat. after a while we went in search of some albies. We found some but they were too hung-over from the weekend to play.We took a longer ride found some more of the same and more bass. The bass were hungry. After more travels we decided to head back to where we started. Ten minutes later a school of bass popped up in front of us. They were then joined by more bass followed by eight lb. blues. We had them for a couple of hours without another boat in sight. To top things off Ian added black sea bass and sea robins to the mix. Despite the lack of albies we had a pretty fun day on the water.
