SB - CN ~ Bassin ~ Mem Day Part 2 ~ 5-30-11

SB - CN ~ Bassin ~ Mem Day Part 2 ~ 5-30-11
watched the T-storms roll in and out in the am..watched the radar and snuck out of the house right behind them..well not right behind them but just enough..

to the water @ 11:15..

------------------------------
High @ 11am
wind - zero - NW @ 5..back to zero
water 65-62
air HHH 86
---------------------------------
after a so so Fluke day -- well maybe less than so so really
decided to hit the home waters in search of bass no matter what.

out on my way --found a promising spot I love --set up quick with another boat - nice guy - thanks for sharing the drift and pointing out fish..just he and I = I true gentleman - he was there 1st so I was just trying my best to stay clear enough but still wanted to get on the fish..breaking here ...then there..
took several drifts - but I finally hooked a nice shoolie ( 24").. man I love that feel of the bite -- subtle..but definitive. Fish.ON!
Speaking of FISH ON! - I made myself a pair of Fish oN! gloves just for this trip to try and shake of the So SO spring I have been having thus far..I just need to find a pattern..

took several more drift...had another hook up--- shoot BLUE...no-
released him and just kept @ it.... other guy split with no other fish in sight.... I just kept @ it...had that feeling..
subtle bite.. BAM ! SET it! FISH ON GLOVES ! yeah,. a nice fish took off....bzzzzzz....fought him to exhaustion..the line look weird in his mouth lure buried....was worried the leader would break from raking back n forth over his rough mouth...got em boat side and with one quick grab of the lip - measured a nice 32.5" fish..

went to un hook the fish and my lure was deep ---but I didn't actually hook the fish.. but I hooked another hook already in the fishes [email protected][email protected]?#@?#? crazy- what are the odds,,the gut hook was hooking his stomach closed... fish was spent..Decided to keep em for the BBQ..( stomach was empty upon inspection)

gave in a few more drifts than I should of after that-- had a follow..but bite died..

1pm? had a 2nd location in mind ...moved towards it but on the way I found some birds crashing...so set up in on em.. 1st cast --Fish on Bass,, nice.. found another pattern and stuck with it...( gloves really workin)
had a good bite going Bass, Blues, fluke, porgy - not all out bonanza but very good...more missed hits and on / offs ..even ONE HUGE FISH on -- my reel was SCREAMING fish just kept running ...I thought I would run out of line.. but he stopped .. turned and the like broke?..ouch.. I think on a rock or structure..weird break.

stayed on them until 3:45pm? when the bite slowed even though I could see fish up n down right next to me.. just wouldn't hit..

was going to head in early...when on the way in saw birds again .. and yup ..found a 3rd pattern...wasn't going to pass it up..All alone as well...Bass , Blues top & middle with Fluke below..a short drift in 22-14..but it was even more consistent..stayed 2 hrs extra and had a great time..left em biting too...

done by 6:00pm

total:~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1 Keeper Bass (32.5" @ 10.1 lbs) Kept
12 short Bass ( 21-27") most 24-25" ~ Kept 1 @19"
8 Blues (19-26")
4 Fluke (17-20")
1 Scup (12.5") Kept DOA
many follows right to the boat,,mostly when I was just retrieving to cast @ breakin fish,..
many missed bites --too many but I'd rather have many bites.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- many WWII planes around B-29, T-6 trainer, Dauntless? ..very best part of the day was when a P-51 came screaming banking around the bend chased / followed by an F-16 --- so excited / surprised / startled @ the sight -- I yelled out P-51 Cadillac of the sky! YEAH!!! what a sight and sound..

Definitely one of my Favorite days of 2011 so far..
