SB ~ TS Lee - 2 Session B-day Rain trip ~ 9-6-11

SB ~ TS Lee - 2 Session B-day Rain trip ~ 9-6-11

Was hoping to get back to weak fishing for my b-day -- took off to fish - I always try to fish on my B-day no matter what.. I have had luck the last 6 yrs with pretty nice weather - TS Hanna in 05 was the last time it was dismal and it wasn't as bad a today..

No lighting -- just rain and alot of it -- heavy @ times..1-3"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Low @ 1pm
Wind ~ Wind switched around today NE 10-15 & S-SW 15-20
Weather - Dark Gray clouds all day , sideways rain @ times.. clear @ times as well..
Air 60-65 ( thats a serious drop in one day) -Crisp & Cool..
Water 73 -76
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Session 1 - AM

Caught the last 3hrs of the outgoing to the water @ 10am.. waded in .... tried to find a spot under the wind to cast a fly.. found a few spots but not were the fish were.
and I didn't want a fly in the face a B-day gift..
so back to get the spinner & headed into the wind...

blasted off a few casts and knew it would be a challenge to feel the bite @ times...so I would wait for a wind switch and hit it...
as long as the lure was in the water I had a shot..

5-6 casts had a hit! -- nice to feel a bass hit again...it's been a month..a few casts after that and Had a 22" schoolie SLAM the lure and nearly knock the rod out of my hands...zzzzzz..was surprised to see he was on 22"...
picked up another schoolie a few cast later...

decided to move because of the tide....,,found a HOLE - filled with schoolies...was hoping for a larger fish but just micros..& blue bite offs..
also found some clams laying along shore washed up...threw them back in..

by 12:30ish the tide slowed and snapper really took over.....Lunch time...maybe should have kept the clams for lunch?
a little wet and cold - went home threw the gloves and clothes in the dryer and got ready for the PM

Session 2 - PM

Grabbed the bike this time...and switched to my reddington wade jacket off to a new location.
Back to the water @ 4:30 for the incoming..again tried the fly rod -- even worse @ the next location..so the wand stayed on the bike..

Not as much luck this next spot...very few hits and most small bites only managed one snapper and one robin - both snagged --
usually this spot is $$$$--- not today

Got Really wet when my Reddington Rain/Wade Jacket disintegrated - the shell pealed like sun burnt skin away from the shell as did the pockets and flaps as it were made of paper..
started about 1/2 way through the trip...too late to go back...got Soaked because of it..I own many redington Fly items and they are usually top notch..disappointing @ best..
looks like they will getting a letter and a jacket back...

All in All a GREAT B-day -- had every place to myself - Solace might me a better gift than fish...might be..

Total: ______________________________________________
11 Short Bass ( 15-22")most 17"
1 Snapper Snagged
1 Sea Robin Snagged
2 clams
1 Oyster cluster
many bite offs
many missed hits
