SB-PJ-MS ~ Cinco De Rapido Bass Blitz ~ 5-5-12

SB-PJ-MS ~ Cinco De Rapido Bass Blitz ~ 5-5-12

Just about to leave for the water early…got a Last minute call and Had to take my parents to the air port @ Noon..
so my plans for a N-S trip: AM weaks south & Pm bass north would be postponed...PLus with the thick fog - it wasnt really going to happen anyway..

Didnt get on the water until 1:30pm...completely missing H tide.
But not missing the fog...still pretty foggy and would be almost all day.

-------------------------------------
H @ 11:15
Water - cold 49-53
air : a cool 62-65 - Over cast n foggy ALL day.
Wind - very light NE 5-8
-------------------------------------
Water still reading cold. @ 51
Tried a few spots quickly here and there - for nada..saw a small fleet fluking already..These new regs have everybody out early – seasons past it was me and maybe 2-3 other boats..good for the local tackle shops.
I was thinking about sticking it out in the area..but decided to head out..( good move.) Ran into a friend who'd been out all day already..got the scoop on the AM bite. Thanks.. and continued with my plan..

5 min. after we spoke..2pm . BAM ~ fish on !~ 1st BASS of the day...and a nice big one ~ just shy of 34". Great fish – released him quickly and made another pass..

Felt a soft pick up and had another bass.. nice 27”…

Redrift…and same spot –Bam – another keeper..just shy of 32”
3 drifts = 3 fish . nice. Then they made me work for it… took another ½ hour until I had another spurt of fish back to back drifts..

Another keeper and on the very next drift – a really big fish…light pick up set the hook and ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ- big heavy drag pull…the came up and rolled and got a really good look @ her….”whoa”…..then a 2nd run and the hook popped lose – She straightened the hook…. estimated 38”? That’s 2 years in a row.. near the same spot..around the same time. That that happened…Next year I going to get a look @ you up close..

Took another Hour until had a hit.. and it was another 32” – watched this guy hit..

had a somewhat consistent bite for 3 hrs.. picked up some shorts in between the larger fish.. 5 shorts 15-27"
really didn’t want to leave -- but I just had to know what was going on in other waters...5pm.

Ran for a half hour until a saw what I have been waiting for all winter ~ Screaming terns stacked one over the over diving in squadrons.. packed tight into a n elevator sized area…lasted 15-20min.. I only managed one fish running and gunning with them.. but it was a nice healthy spring bass. 26"
changed tactics n stopped chasing them ..just drifted into them-- worked better
1 more short 25” and 1 more keeper @ 29.25" ~ 605pm

last fish was - 1st sea Robin of the season..yeah!!! headed back to towards port….poking into a few more spots on the way but didn’t produce a thing..

sun just peeked out for a moment..called it a GREAT day @ 7:30pm

total: all released
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6 Keeper Bass (29.25",31.062",31.625",32",33.75", & 38"??? - hook straightener..)
9 Shorts ( 15-27") mostly all were 22"-26"
Not many missed bites - very slow n soft pick-ups..
1 Sea Robin.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- a few foggy ghostly vessels. Research Ship? And a Tug..
- Used my new Buff for the first time—great item..Bonefish style..
- Got a glimpse of the Super Mooon as I rinsed the motor in the moon light..

Awesome spring day/evening..
