GSB - Long Day of WEAKS ~ 8-4-12

GSB - Long Day of WEAKS ~ 8-4-12

Couldn’t wait to get back to the south shore in search of WEAKS again
Knew I had a good shot on Saturday AM - just as long as the fog wasn’t Thick..


To the ramp @ 5:25am
------------------------------------
Wind 10- 20 SSE
Low @ 730
Air - HHH 86 + Strong Southern Breeze kept it cool.
water - 78-81
Sunrise 5:52
------------------------------------
Set Out just before sunrise – very hazy and slight Fog in the distance as Fire island was missing. Very low clouds hanging overhead.
Slight chop with the wind already started before the Sun was up.. not a super smooth ride on the way out but not bad.

Sun up was slow to arrive trying to burn through the fog / clouds
Cruised to the old spot I found the Skeetugee @ 2 weeks ago…..and nothing – just a few bites, one Snapper and one Great big run off… but that was it…very disappointed that they moved on.. – searched around the area but still nada for 1.5 hrs.…should have left earlier. It was only 7:30 So I Still had time to find ONE..
That 1.5 hrs. of quiet ..Felt like it might be one of those GSB days where its picky fishing’..

Moved out to greener pastures… ½ way to another spot I had in mind – marked some fish/ bait in an area I never fished before. Stopped on top of them.. and bam.. Fish on.. WEAK!!! = Success.. very small but still a weak.. right back down and bam another fish on.. still small.. nailed 7 small weaks in a row on the first drift..

Headed back up and had only 1 on the next drift…kept @ it and had very active drifts and then very slow drifts. Adjusting didn’t make a difference—just hit or miss.
Still it was a very good bite.. took a while bur finally had a small Keeper..17”. one in 20..

Had a pretty good bite = Stayed on the fish for a few hrs. ..around 10 decided to search another area to see if I could find some larger weaks..
Made about 3-4 stops until I found another good drift and some larger fish mixed in - had a double header of a short and a 20”. Even with the growing boat traffic – fish were still biting. My Original Plan : I was going to leave @ 10:30 and hit again Sunday…but the bite was good enough that I decided to just grind it out all in one day because the wind forecast for Sun wasn’t good.. ( a great decision as it was a Blow SUN with AM FOG) – by Noon the boats were getting thicker and Closer. So close I could read the captains drink in the cup holder. Time to move..

Headed back to the NEW spot …the bite was even Better?. Nailed a double header on the 1st drift. Drift after drift – very consistent.. got in a good groove.. 4 more keepers. Rockin and Shot by 2:40 ..decided to leave them biting and Call a GREAT Day! Wish I would have kept a better count but it ended up being a much better End than beginning.

---------------------------------
7 Keeper Weaks ( 17.25"-19.75")
50?-60? Shorts ( 10-15.875") most 12”-13”
1 Bluefish ( 17")
5 Snapper blues ( 8-10")
1 Black Sea Bass ( 11")
--------------------------------
- snappers poppin on the surface
- A few Blueclaw drive by.
- Sail boat races all over the bay.. Had one come straight @ me while I was a drift ~ only to turn 90 degrees @ the very last moment.

Best place to be on HHH day.
