Striper Opener ~ 1st Bass 2012 ~ Yak ~ 4-15-12

Striper Opener ~ 1st Bass 2012 ~ Yak ~ 4-15-12

I always fish the opener but have never actually caught any fish on opening day because the water is still too cold...

Well not this year – I knew I had a shot due to this 20 something days early spring we are having..
forecast for AM rain never happened...but the 70+ degrees did... beautiful day..
Now only if the fish would cooperate...

Missed the AM Time...
So I just spent the day Getting the Yak together as well as worked on the boat and organized my gear and rigged a few rods.. 1st time I really cleaned the YAK since I bought it ( '0Shades looks brand new..

to the water @ 5pmish...

Air 72
Water mid 50s'? – DF> said 60.3 when it settled down – but I am pretty sure this is off..
Wind SW @ 15
h @ 8

paddled in and immediately grabbed my brand new rod that I built over the winter … my 1st I ever built ...matched with the redesigned Stradic slung underneath.... Could Not WAIT to get this thing wet...
I usually have good luck each spring when I 1st using a brand new rod for the first time...
maybe that trend will continue...

after I was done shaking down the Yak and the New rod I set off to search for some early Bass...

hit about 8 spots and it took 2 + hrs but I finally got a HIT and landed a small fry 14-15” Bass on the 1st hit...unfortunately that little sucker knocked my new outfit in the drink... It got wet alright...Grabbed it right out .. but man I really Hate dunking a new reel on the 1st outting.. or any time...

had a few more hits ...but that was it..
Didn’t really care that I missed a few more fish.. = just so glad to catch a bass on the Opener for the 1st time

done @ 8:30

nice sunset .. Warm night – even with the stiff breeze..

Total:
1 – Opener Mirco Bass ( 14-15”)
2 missed hits
Few weeds n mud..

Have a Great 2012 Season..
