GSB ~ --+-- Summer Weaks Marathon –+-- ~ 8-19-12

GSB ~ --+-- Summer Weaks Marathon –+-- ~ 8-19-12

With the New rod ready to roll and all bait and gear preset.. I was off to find the weaks again after skipping a weekend.
I hope they are where I left them…
This year has been great - with multiple reports from all corners of the island.

On the water @ 5:25… Saw the OLD Osprey @ the dock….was wondering why it was there?...just as I shoved off. I saw why..SUNK> @ the dock..looks like she’s headed to dry dock for a while.

Got about 5 min out and realizes I had forgotten my sunglasses. Back in quick and back out even quicker..
--------------------------------------------------
-Wind – slight NE @ sunrise building to 10-15+ by sun up. Choppy day
-Air = COOL am full gear for the ride out –then shorts by midday 80
- water 70-77
- Low @ 630?
---------------------------------------------------

GLASS ride out…but by the time I drew closer to my spot ..choppy.
Stopped on the old spot 1st .. dropped in and bites right away..1st WEAK in the boat in 5min of lines in.. small.
Even though I had Weak. Decided to continue on with my plan in mind instead..

Well… didn’t go so well.. MAYBE I should have stayed put….
Was heading back slowly. Still trying multiple spots with little success.. only 1 small black sea bass in 2HRS.. and nearly zero bites..
decided reinvestigate a spot I had fish 2 yrs. back..and BINGO..found em. Nothing huge.. but great ACTion..many marks on the finder as well.. 2 fish in had a nice 17” keeper and a short… pretty fast bite so switched to some Jigging fun- no wasting time rebaiting.. back down .. fish ON or bites right away.. hot bite lasted for 2hrs..
slowed by noon to zero drift…switched back to bait and still picked @ fish..
Awesome Weak day ~ decided to head back to the dock @ 12:20.

Caught a ride ½ way back behind a HUGE Sportfish plowing down the nasty chop for somewhat smoother ride. Glad he was heading my way…when we parted ways – stopped for a minute..right near my old spot so I decided to send a jig down just to check..Bam fish on again.. 1:30 under bright sun and lots of traffic?? Ok.
Did about 30 short drifts in .5mph ~ perfect .. had another 20-25 fish and 4 more keepers including a tail snagged 20” fish which I thought was a monster weak by the way the drag was ripping out..

Arms shot and the bite slowed a bit –Finally called it @ 3pm Stayed way too long…as I left ‘em semi- biting

Bumpy ride back yet again..no plow on this leg.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Total : all released
15-20 Keeper WEAKS ( 16” – 20” = 9 of which were 18-20”)
60-70 short weaks ( 12-15.5”) most 14-15”
5-6 Small Black Sea Bass ( 9-10”)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Camera got FRIED today as I went to turn it on .. I didn’t notice that e Water proof case developed a leak and it was filled with water…Water + Electric= Fry
Water must have been in there in for a while as it was all rusted out inside.. not that many picts survived but some did..

Can’t wait to get back out there! Got to love Weaks!

Home in time for the Jets preseason.. fish n FootbaLL!
