BROOK to BROOK 2012 w/ J ! ~ 6-28-12

BROOK to BROOK 2012 with J! ~ 6-28-12

I have been trying to get my lifelong friend J out fishing for 2 years now since we connected on my 4oth B-day.
He finally had the time to hit the water on a after work trip.. Was set to meet him @ 7 for a matching 704 high. Forecast for light winds and clear sky’s mid 70s perfect.. prepped everything the night before to save time.. But the train decided to break on the way home FIGURES.. I was FUMING for the extra 20 min they added ~ the only day I need to be someplace.. just figures.. oh well. Calmed down once the train was moving and closer to the station..

Now set to meet @ 7:20… Right on time…I pull up to the ramp…and ..WHAT then? No trailer spots, no regular spots, people Double parked in all of the trailer spots. ? Not ONE place to park.. I was seriously considering parking behind all those that parking reg cars in the trailer spots..
but by the time I went to park ..2 cars left @ the same time leaving from back to back spots just enough for a boat & trailer…squeeeezed it in..
Things now turning around..

On the water and AWAY from the craziness…I have never EVER seen the ramp and surrounding area So packed! Crazy..
------------------------------------
wind Sw @ 9 ( gusts to 12)
Water 73
Air 78-75
High @ 704pm
------------------------------------

on the water @ 7:35pm

Very high tide..not moving yet @ all..Stopped to do some practice casts to get the rust out since J hasn’t fish in over 1.5 yrs and hasn’t had his 20’ CC mako out in 2yrs! Man this guy is busy..Glad he found the time to Go..
Now I had to do everything to get him into a fish..ANY fish.

Made a quick run into the sound. Drop in @ a slope but only one bite..even though we had solid marks of fish and bait .. No Time to wait em out…
FLAT ~ GLASS conditions. Blasted off & Stopped on a spot where I knew we'd have some action.

1st cast…He had a fish on..BIG SCUP. Nice largest of the season thus far..(16”) Porkchop…
He wanted to keep as his Wife said “ you’d better bring something Home”….I didn’t think we were keeping fish so I didn’t plan on it – but we made due with the cooler liner bucket form the drink cooler..Cold fresh water still in it helped..

Next drift.. Blue after after blue … double hook ups.. no bass.great fun.. kept 4-5? of the smaller Yum size 19” for him.
Stayed on em until right after the sun set..840..
Let’s try to find a bass for you..

Blasted over by his house on the water so he could SEMI- watch his daughter via text..

Very slow for the next hour or so…some hits…then I nailed a small Schoolie…then a Med blue on the same drift – back top back..
But drift after drift.. min action..Tide took a very long time to get moving..about 10pm J hooks up with a Nice Fish.. very Nice it seemed as the drag peeled out..but I couldn’t remember if I had switched it back from Weakfish setting?....I think I did...he was using my custom built #1 rogue rod..so I pretty sure I did..but not 100% after seeing the drag peel..so he fought it out right in the mode it was in..I really thought it was just a med size schoolie ..but then we saw it.. NICE Bass! Guess the drag was set right..Hand Grab the 33” fish for Grill for him in one shot..Nice.
He was All Smiles after that.. said he hadn’t had a bass like that in a Decade or more..

Pretty good fishing for a 3 hr trip.

Done @ 10:30pm

Got Back to the Ramp and just as we pull into the dock..We see a Boat on the ramp @ the mouth of the ramp..Half on the trailer and Half on the RAMP ..Smashed down... SMASHED onto the ramp and Motor broke off with transom ATTACHED and was obliterated with parts exploded all over the ramp..…OUCH…Just OUCH>>> terrible sight.. felt terrible for the guy.
Offer some help..but there wasn’t much we could do.. “HE just Said S--- Happens” he had a pretty good attitude about the whole thing..but he might have been there awhile. Looked like the hook broke loose and it Rolled rapidly off the back of the trailer.. Was able to JUST, just barely sneek past him to retrieve my boat. Seeing something like that and attitude he had really Puts things into perspective.


total:
------------------------------
1 Keeper Bass ( 33")
1 Schoolies Bass ( 20")
12+ Blues ( 19-25")
1 Big Scup (16")
------------------------------
- I forgot the Camera in the truck....used my Cell phone but the picts don’t do the night sky , sunset and other scenes justice.

Awesome Night with a great old friend.
