9 -1-12 :
Hit the south for weaks again. Sat
Nice Morning light winds out of the NNW – a little over cast so it took beyond sunrise to see the sun.

----------------------------------------------
Wind NNW @ 5-10 – building to ESE by noon for some real =nasty conditions
Water 75-77
Air – 83
Sunrise 6:19 – Full Moon
Low @ 6
-----------------------------------------------

It’s been a fast drift / slop chop / windy weak season this year
A lot of drifts @ 1mph or better. So I happy to see the finder say .7 when I got to my spot.

Had Weaks on the 2nd drift..small. stuck it out until the outgoing tide gave out and drift really died as did the bite.
Had about 6 weaks boated all small.. not the best bite. Not the best the tide either.

Hop scotched form spot to spot looking for a few more…
finally found a few and had some nice marks – all to myself for an hour. had a pretty good bite for 2 hours nailed a nice 22.5” keeper on a jig – he hammered it and too off.. nice drag peel on light tackle.. just got him in as the leader snapped – a quick pict and a nice release. Definitely one of the nicer fish this year.
Switched locations as few other boats began to crowd in and the bite slowed to almost a halt.…found another pile and managed another keeper @ 18”…

by 10:45 the boats started really closing in on all sides..and wakes increased as did the wind and the drift was 1.5…too much – bite slowed = time to go.

Back to the early spot..by noon – had a 5-6 more fish and missed a really really nice heavy bite/ fish..the wind began to pick up similar to last week –
so I left to try to beat the buildup out of the East.. made it ½ way back and the seas were rough as heck again.. So rough ~ I though the motor broke @ one point heard a pop and then a louder sound ? slowed to check it as the wind/waves battered me ..I had to crawl to the back to investigate. The Motor cover latch broke free..and the cover was 3” off. Relieved that was the trouble, I locked it back in place and did a slow put put back to port…..better to fish another day than be in dry dock for the rest of the season.



--------------------------------------------------------------------

Total: All released - Actual count--------------------------------------------------------------------
2 Keeper Weaks ( 22.5”, 18”)
30 Short Weeks ( 13-15.75”)
2 Black Sea Bass ( 10”-11”)

Forecast for ENE again…supposed to be light winds in the AM..but E wind…any East wind =NG
Called Dave late last night—Said he was in…. but I had a feeling after we spoke he might not make. Celebrations late into the night as I suspected..

Go to the ramp and the flags were blowing and in the dark I could hear the waves lapping the shore line…not good..
Waited for Dave even though I knew he would be a no show … was ready to scratch the day..but then the sun started to to illuminate the water – didn’t look so bad??... decided I was already there.. so headed out alone.. 6:10.

----------------------------------------------------
Wind E @ 17mph steady..and building.
Water 77
Air 68
Sun up 6:20
Low @ 8?
-----------------------------------------------------

Should have kept it on the trailer……rough deep waves on the bay …cruised @ 17 mph and was falling into them with the wind @ back I was going the same speed as the blow. Easy to get there…not so much on the way back..,,

1st drift…under a ominous sunrise..Black water with burning red – orange glow and dark clouds above…this was worth the short time out there..picked up a short 15.5” Weak at the very end of the drift. NICE~ success. No skunk – now I go home…but I gave it a few more drift –ok around 10 more.. didn’t do much but still had 2 more short and 4-5 other bites.. I was o inspired by the sunrise and being a lonely soul out there.. I started singing the star spangled Banner…LOUD like if I was singing to a stadium on opening day.. it was great. Not the singing but that feeling of Freedom. Very fitting that Had a fish on right @ the finale !

Heading back @ 8…. Slamming and pitching the whole way..got up on plane once and was skipping like a stone across a less choppy section – good work out on the legs.. almost lost the bait board though – it jumped out of the holder spun in the air and landed back in the holder upside down…nice. Slowed back down to crawl after that..returned by 9am.. great morning.

-------------------------------------
Total:
3 Short Weaks ( 13-15.5”)
4-5 missed bites
-------------------------------------
