SB ~ Election Day Bass ~ 11-8-11

SB ~ Election Day Bass ~ 11-8-11

Had the Day off - and it was perfect outside -- last few years, election day has been pretty nice and in the low - mid sixties.. so nice trend continues this year.

Didn't have anything ready since I have been busy with projects and organizing this October -- took my time putting everything together....wasn't in a real hurry..just enjoying the free time.

Hooked up the boat by 10:30 & dragged it to the polling place to vote on the to the ramp...Jeep ( now @ 112,506) has been acting terrible..new water pump 1 week ago and now it's having trouble starting correctly...I wasn't taking any chances before I got the water...so when I got there --I just left it running..Voted quickly and was on my way..


--------------------------------------------------------------
High @ 9 am
Wind - zero--- not even a slight breeze --
Air - 69? == warm..pleasant
water - 53-56
--------------------------------------------------------------

to the water @ 11:55 -
talked with a few nice Optimum guys @ the ramp about my promising chances for today...and off I went..
a really beautiful day -- perfect cruising day--

Water is CRYSTAL CLEAR --- you could see the bottom clear as day 10 feet down.. So clear, that a few times I had to check the finder to make sure I wasn't going too shallow..very deceiving see that clear...

on the way out..stopped @ a spot I like for a few casts....bingo... had a hit on the 1st drift... really wasn't expecting anything to be there..
redrifted and picked up a schoolie Bass @ 24" -- made about a dozen more drifts with a bump here and there but couldn't hook up with anything else..

probably;ly spent too much time there..
moved on by 1:30... FLAT as GLASS in the sound.....

went in search of Birds diving....didn't take too long as I found a pile of them driving on some fish pushing bait up and down..got in the pattern and had a hit...Bass -- no marks..
took a few drifts to get another to hit....but it ended up being a Blue bite off..
tried under them for a while.. but nada.. 2:10 now..
only a little out going left...

hit a 3rd spot on the way toward PJ to try the shoal..

fish next to another Nor'easter Grock.. nice meeting you...as I were were just exchanging info on the day... BAM!

Get hooked up by a freight train of a bass on light tackle.....a little too light as I realized the rod was still set for Weaks...drag was going crazy.. didn't want to touch it during the battle..but I had to tweak it in order to get him in today-- rather than tomorrow..

still he ran me around the boat a few times.... nice 2-3 runs... a quick hand lip grab and I boated a beautiful really Fat 33" Bass..
Quick measure and photo - released him in great shape - dorsal up and ready to Go>

made 10+ more drifts but that was it...and I'll Take it..decided that was enough.
done @ 3:30pm..
Never made to the East.

(Time to see if I'll be using my Seatow Trailer service,,,,fingers crossed as I turned the key...hard starting again... but cranked over on the 3rd try.....1.5 months to go before I upgrade to a "newer" WJ --
Looks like I'll be in the shop again before that happens.. She is really resisting the change..)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
total:
1 Keeper Bass ( 33") fat - football shaped...
1 Schoolie Bass ( 24")
2 missed bass bite
1 Blue bite off
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- on the way back in....Saw a seal @ Cranes -- very cool sight -- tried to get a better picture -- but he wouldn't have it.
