SB PJ MS ~ 1st Northshore NORTHERN Kingfish ~ 6-24-12

SB PJ MS ~ 1st North shore NORTHERN Kingfish ~ 6-24-12

little late on the start today again ( only 1/2 hr.) due over sleeping ..Party went late last night 1 am..

Still on the water @ 5:33..a little groggy..

--------------------------------------------
wind NW 10 switched to SW 10-15+ by noon
Air 68 am -82 pm very warm Sun today..
water 72-73
High @ 3:30ish
--------------------------------------------
Hoped to hit the same spot and for a repeat of yesterday’s Bass n big Blue nonstop bite.
Had a Bass on the 1st drift….nice.. but the bite was not even close to the same. Many many drifts for 3hrs..picked a few bass and a few blues…on the very last Drift nailed a another BIG BLUE…great fight..and another perfect corner mouth hook set.. So now it wasn’t the Last drift.. but it should have been took 5-6 more drifts.. but didn’t have another bite..Here today , Gone tomorrow………

Decided it was time to Move out to near the Flukers… Drop down and an instant fish on..came up seeing Silver..scup? …no too skinny – another WEAK???? - No … but WOW:
a North shore NORTHERN Kingfish (14") My first one on the North shore since I started fishing here 30 years ago..That’s 2 south shore species in the same year…that I have never seen up North. Fantastic. Very bold markings on this King and much more Silver than the south shore variety. I remember reading and re-reading about these as a Kid ~ hoping to catch one when we would flounder fish..

Stayed on the drift – Which was Perfect…outgoing tide and a just right incoming wind created a SLIDE drift which kept me perfectly drifting the very edge of the ledges @.5mph.. marked a few fish on the finder, which is better than none..which is what I was finding everywhere else.

Only 5-6 boats out—drifting the opposite way.. Nailed a 22.25” Fluke on the very next drift..Long slow drifts.. and a bunch of shorts.. another Blue @ 26”. Many fish on and off.. a bunch of Robins.. a few had Followers that just wouldn’t give up on the lure in there friend’s mouth ( no Bait involved) - Had Blues do the same thing only more abundant.( too fast for the camera)

Since I had a semi decent bite and a great drift…Decided to try a spot that held weaks a short time ago..NADA..
Moved back after a ½+ hr of searching…but the bite wasn’t as good ..Mostly robins..Big ones too.

10:30am…should of just headed in…but decided to Hop scotch many spots all the past MS….very choppy over there.. Finally found a pile of fish to myself. Nice sizes too. And more importantly Not ONE Robin.. all Fluke, Scup or blues..
Picked a few 2 more keeper Fluke(20”,19.5”) as well as quite a few shorts -=-- so far the best fluking of the season for me = even though I wasn’t really set up for fluking. If I had spearing with me – would of have had 40-50 fluke today.

Water got really Choppy so called it a day – ROUGH ride back past PJ..insane Boat wakes..much better once I passed OFP.

Done @ 141pm...too long should have left @ 1030 after the tide gave out..too much rockin' and traffic -- all the very big Boats were out today..

------------------------------------------
1 North shore NORTHERN Kingfish (14") 1st on the NS in 30 years..
1 Big Blue ( 30.5")
10+ Small Blues (18-26") most 19"
3 keeper Fluke ( 22", 20", 19.5")
15-18?+ Short Fluke ( 16-19.25") most 18"
6 Short Bass ( 19-24")
1 Scup ( 12")
20+ Robins
------------------------------------------
-Water very Clear -- I could see 10 ft down.. tricks you when you are in shallow...made me back out of some places...then I realized it was deep..
- My neice tied a good luck red ribbon the boat seems to be working well.
- Got buzzed by a LOW flying sea plane several times.. thought it would land a few times..

Nice day on the water - great mixed bag.
