Somebody talked


Friday was a day off so we decided to head out after such a good day yesterday. We left early and made the run only to find lots of mackerel and shad where we left the bass the day before. They were fun for about three minutes so we kept on going. Eventually we found the bass along with 20 other boats. It was pretty ugly with everyone trying to get on top of the fish. We stay as long as we could stand it and wound up with a nice bunch of fish. On the way home we found two more schools of fish each with 15 boats surrounding them.

What a difference a day makes.


Thursday brought Gary back out to start his Fall season. There was no wind and flat seas when we left the dock. The first stop brought a handful of bass to his fly. Moving around we found an acre of bass all to ourselves. To make a long story shorter we had fish all morning and into the afternoon. Mostly good sized schoolies with a few bigger ones mixed in.A pretty fun day.

What wind

Wednesday Richard came out again for a chance to wet his line. It was a bit breezy when we left the dock and when we got to where we needed to be it was windy. I keep forgetting that when the weatherman says 10 to 15 he means 10 plus 15. Rich hung in there […]

Good news and better news

Friday Gail and I decided to do an afternoon trip for a change. We found bass and blues to start. Shortly after that we saw the tell tale slicing and dicing as the bonito made an appearance. When they first arrive they are hard to catch unless they pop up within casting range. We kept […]

A nice day for a boat ride

This morning brought Tom and Dawn down for a shot at whatever we can find out there. We started early on one of the reefs and Dawn put three bass in the boat right away. Soon after that Tom had tied it up at three apiece and that was when I lost track of the […]
