MS PJ ~ LONG, Slow, Pick + CraZy TeRn ~ 5-6-11



LATE report Sat 5-6-11



858am - 654pm - Long day...



Had Tom B-fish on board today for some exploration - Bass / fluke on the North shore. 1st real trip into the sound this year.



Nice Calm morning - I was expecting to be rained on all morning too.. -- not a drop hit us all day.

---------------------------------

Low @ 9am

high @ 3pm

Wind S-SW @ 5-10 -- switched on @ 2pm WnW 15-10 -- then 5mph by 6:30ish..Mostly flat all day.

water 50- 51 - still cool..

air 55-67 - comfortable all day

--------------------------------



As we left the Harbour -- there were rescue boats everywhere-- maybe 10+ they were doing a Practice rescue with a dummy they put in the jetty..



Marked fish n bait right away..fished right outside the rescue.. but nada... no birds above..



move east -- still nada -- went west.. Tom had a fluke bite...but that was it .. moved to 2-3-4 -5 locations -- still nothing,..



1.5 hours in the birds started working...but still nothing hitting.. not really picking up much on the Finder either...stuck around them...finally a bite. Tom picks up a small Fluke..15"



another 1/2 late I get a bite and..a nice 25" schoolie. had 2 More bass on 5-6 drifts... one was just , just , just shy of a Keeper ....also picked a few Fluke...thought we found the bite...but it just never happened..

lots of Drifting --but not much action..Just waiting for it to Bust open..moved n moved --



around 2pm when the wind picked up - this single Crazy Tern...came out of no where...and just began to hover - float about my head--- not moving.. just @ the top of the rod tips...no noise just hovering...I would turn away to fish and would hover closer as I could see his shadow closing in on the top of my head...he showed up and the bite picked up a little - Tom finally had his 1st Bass of the season ... and I picked a 19" Fluke..

we redrifted and the tern came back... I didn't even have bait--- He just watched and floated above.....I have never seen anything like..no other terns or other birds were around either.. he followed us around for about an hour...we moved ... he moved..Crazy.WIND picked up and the bite was Zero ---.I thought he going to follow us home when we left ...he followed us to just about the harbour entrance... @ 4:30 ish..

Decided to try inside..moved all over,,warmer @ 58 in some spots..saw a fish surface.. casted to in .. BAM! ..Bluefish? - NO! not yet --- had 2 more bite offs.. and one chase to the boat...on a slow day - I'll take it...but I am not ready for the chompers..I need a spring bass fix first.



done @ 7pm.. Nice sky as we left

Total~~~~~~~~combined

4 Bass ( 25", 25" ,26", 27 15/16")

5 Fluke ( 15-19")

1 Bluefish ( 19")

1 Fat Sundial ( 14.5") -- definelty the largest I have caught..stomach was full and he like a dinner plate

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- some fish are better than no fish,.

- was going to try again Mothers day early- had everything ready too.- but had to do some long over due truck Maint..+ other maint-- paint the deck - replace the worn out fish tape measure(very important)

- still thinking about that Gaurdian good luck tern..



next trip - it should bust!
