SB- PJ - MS ~ Sun UP to Sun Down Spring Bass w/ Dave ~ 5-12-12

@ the ramp by 5:30 - Dave already there..

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wind - zero-5 in the am until 8 - then a fan West - SW 15-20+
Air - 44 am -- 76 by 3pm -BRIGHT sun but the wind made it cool all day.
water 53- 58
High @ 5:30AM
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IN THE WATER AND UNDER WAY @ 5:45
Forgot the sunglasses -- back under way @ 6am
Water just starting to move out.....

Wind was zero – in the AM – love it. Calm n quiet- even the lure hitting the water seemed to make too much noise..
2nd cast – fish on! We had a great start to the day – made multiple drifts with either a hit or a fish on each..2nd fish was a nice 27”..with others being 22-23”

Moved when the boats started to move in..

Still haven’t been marking fish where they have been in years past…dropped in on a few spots to see if they are there yet..NADA

Headed to the spot I had 6 keepers a week ago = Worked – started getting fish even 3rd – 4th drift.. No fish chasing.. if you hit em on the head you had a fish…reeling back in was just wasting time..( but we did anyway..just in case..)
Had the 1st keeper of the day. Nice 32” 820am

Wanted to hit another spot before we lost water. Only picked up a fluke and a sundial…drove around looking for fish for the next 3 hrs… Nada..Did see the 1st sailboat race of the season..
Then Wind picked up HARD…every sail boat racing.. headed in..
poked around under the wind.. found a bunch of very small bass.. but at least it was bass..and where there small fish there might be big fish.. tried for an hour ++ but only shorts..

Decided to head back to the orig spot as the tide rose..and get back closer to port.. just in case if the wind and waves got worse..
We fished the same area as the Am for about 1.5 hrs without a hit… on the last drift…I said “this is dead ..let’s move”
Just as the words Move came out of my mouth…We a had a Double hook up of keepers…Both drags zipping and ran us around the boat..awesome..34.25” and 31”….355. Glad we stayed out for the return of the tide..
We ended up staying of course ..another 2.5 hrs.… and picked up another 3 keepers as well as a few shorts..
Last fish was a nice 32”.. decided to end the trip on a high note..
Called it @ 6:30

Awesome day.. a little long and little windy…but well worth it.
