SB ~ 3 Day Weekend 34" Yak bass~ 10-9-10-11-10

SB ~ 3 Day Weekend 34" Yak bass~ 10-9-10-11-10

Very late reports..

Had a long weekend and what a weekend it was! perfect weather everyday. only difference was the wind..

Sat 10-9-10==========================================================================

Did Some yard work 1st and then hit the suds on foot for the last of the out going til sundown..

had fish on with in 10 cast - nice little bass.
managed 4 more and as the tide left and sun fell- made a big move

glad I did -- hooked into a big blue..but broke off...too bad..
took for ever .. but found another one -- did a huge leap as I set the hook -- wasn't expecting to see another ..or any blues for that matter as I only had 30lb flouro on me...
struggled to keep the line straight hoping he would not turn across it and get the leader... got him right to shore --- when he does a big long tarpon tail walk right @ me in less then a foot of water...and snaps the line as he comes crashing down just @ my feet as I jumped out of the way... all I could see was 30" of anger teeth catapulting towards me..

couldn't top that -- so called it a night. done @ 6:45pm
---------------------------------------------------------
total:
5 Schoolies (17-21")
2 Big Blues ( 28?- 30"?)
10-20 missed bumps bites ..
-----------------------------------------------
- great action - pretty consistent..not much waiting between fish..not bad for 2+hrs.
-Truck turned 109K today

Sun 10-10-10==========================================================================

wanted a change of pace...so decided to take the yak out since on such a nice day - very warm in the sun.
------------------------
Air 70+
wind NW 10-15
water 62?
High @ 2pm
-----------------------

in @ 3pm --lots of bait in the water.. a great sign...but maybe too much..
paddled out as I heard the scream of a Hawk above,..awesome sound... then 2 ospreys over head one with a fish.. 10 min later 2 Blue Herons chasing each other in aerial battle.
monarch butterflies , diamond back terrapins, Snowy egrets... It was wild kingdom today.. worth the trip to just see this...

Hit many many spots....for nada..I know there's fish here...just where? -- was starting to think maybe I was in the wrong place.. when just as the though crossed my mind.. ZZZZZZZZZZZ nice fish.. BLUe .. dragged me around .. tough guy @ 24".. ..quickly released - felt much better now the skunk was gone..

casted and casted -- bump here.. bump there.. bite off.. but nothing stellar.. very patient fishing today....I just had a feeling about this one spot that I kept getting light hits from...when
light bite --set the hook and the fish just took OFF>>>>>>>>> biggest fish on the yak yet.....not sure what it was ....pretty sure it was a bass by it's actions...but the best part is not really knowing as you Nantucket sleigh ride around...I had dreams of a rogue weakfish...but then I always do...Finally got a look @ him came up and ran down..Nice Bass..
Got em boat side - quick measure 34" - Personal yak Best and released this beauty-

After that - I t was nada...fish on top but no takes.. done @ 6:50.
------------------------------------------------------
total:
1 Striped Bass ( 34")
1 Blue ( 24")
a few missed hits..5-6? but not many
---------------------------------------------------

awesome awesome day on the yak

Mon 10-11-10 Columbus Day off =================================================================

So great yesterday and so similar today that I decided to Yak it again.. plus everything was still in place -- just jump in the truck n go.

Same scene as yesterday .. unreal beauty.

[email protected] 3pm again
-----------------------------------------------
High @ 3pm
wind - nada - changed and had breezes but different directions - never got started..
air 68
water 62?
--------------------------------------------

took even longer and more patience today to find action...and when I did hook up - it was a Robin..

2 hrs and much , much casting with little or no results....hooked up with a nice blue -- felt big as the drag went crazy and he Spun me 8 times..like a top..
I was surprised to measure [email protected] only 24" -- fight felt more like a 28" fish..

had another robin ...and that was it for 3+hrs....

best part of the day was when a Osprey was diving 100ft away from me multiple passes .. so cool to see Him smash into the water -- jump out and shake off..circle me and do it again.

done @ 6:30 -- my arms are shot from 1000 casts this weekend..
--------------------------------------
total:
1 Blue ( 24")
2 Robins
2-3 nice missed hits
4-5 bumps
1 Plastic bag...
-------------------------------------
