SB ~ Scup & Robins Extra Day off ~ End STAYcation~ 7-16-12

SB ~ Scup & Robins Extra Day off ~ End STAYcation~ 7-16-12

Had a great Long weeks’ plus vacation @ home.( aka STAYcation)
We had a list of things to see for the entire week.. each day was a new or old place to visit.
Made it feel like a very long week..
Took off one extra day to Fish since I didn’t fish the entire vacation..
Good thing because I heard the trains were delayed on this very hot day.

When I was getting everything ready to go there was zero breeze @ home. I hoped it would be better @ the water.. if not this would be a short trip..
Arrived @ the ramp @ 10:40 and a nice breeze greeted me…
Only place to be on a HOT HOT day,. Only 4 trailers @ the ramp as well.. nice.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10:15 am H
Wind - nice Breeze W @ 10
Air - 94 HHH felt like 100+ on land. Cooler on the water – thanks Breeze
water - 75-77
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shoved off and passed a bunch of terns diving.. the water was FILLED with bait.. and way below fish stacked up…nothing biting yet & the tide wasn’t moving yet so figured I’d come back in an hour for the mayhem.

Hit a few spots…and found some marks on a nice sliding side drift to a drop.. picked up fish right away.. Robins @ first ( I hate it when the 1st fish is a Robin) then a few scup? In the middle of nowhere.. nice slow drift .5 kept me over them longer.. 1 -2 small fluke mixed in with the occasional blue also grabbing on if I came off the bottom too much.. a very consistent bite… so I stayed a little longer than an hour..

Headed back to the bait…NADA…and the stacked marks below..GONE… ODD.. this is usually a set up for great action. Drifted it anyway for ½ hr – NADA.
Oh well that’s Fishing..

Headed back to the same spot and bite continued…I like the consistency ,but didn’t stay long because I really wanted/hoped to find some surprise yellow fin trout.. so I hit a few different spots…and yep more small Porgies and robins @ each drop..

Switched to a bucktail/gulp combo with a 3/0 for better hook ups that I have hidden in the leaning post. Didn’t have any bait except for that – which was enough. Would of done much better with some spearing.. maybe next time. Didn’t care as I was just enjoying the day off with cool water running in from the open scupper to keep my feet comfortable.

Hit a few more spots with similar results –
Called it a Day @ 3:30
Wasn’t as comfortable as I got in the truck @ 105 showing on the temp…
-----------------------------
total
8 short Fluke ( 15 -17”)
8+ Blues ( 15- 24”)
25++ Scup (10 -12”)
35-40 Robins
1 Spider Crab.
-----------------------------
-Big barges pushing back and forth from PJ all day.
-Birds working with blues on the flats all day
-Pretty calm as day.
-Decided to Use a Broken/shortened custom rod I built as a bucktail spinner..work better than expected the thicker front grip worked very well for single handed bouncing.

Nice Day great way to end a weeks+ vacation. The extra day made a huge difference.
