MS-PJ ~ Kevin B-day NS trip ~ 9-17-12

MS-PJ ~ Kevin B-day NS trip ~ 9-17-12

After building a rod for my longtime friend Kevin – long time coming – wife surprised him with it for his B-day fri as well as an instructional guide trip = so we made plans to get it wet on the weekend. Sat a No Go due to heavy NNW wind – so Sunday it was. He hasn’t fished in a decade or more and never like this.

After seeing some reports of Albies and big blues decided to hit the NS again. Haven’t fishy NS in more than a Month. Plus he has beach rights in PJ so I wanted to show him a few spots near his beach.

Met @ the ramp @ 6:15
----------------------------------------------------------
Wind wNW 10-15 – slowed to 10by noon.
High @ noon
Water 69-71
Air 60-75
----------------------------------------------------------
Well I was hoping it would be calmer in the AM…but with all that wind yesterday the sound was a little rough- especially for his 1st boat trip. Good thing he’s got a bit of Salt in his veils through sailing and ocean yaking – so didn’t have to take it too easy on him . Still it wasn’t the best tide to start with – dead low..

Stayed in the sound for poking around for about 15 min .. but too rough to introduce light tackle. Reluctantly we heading inside. Had some bite off by snappers and small blues.. he even had one on ~on off..but it was very slow for sure.. explored the are marked a huge pile of fish..but no hook ups..hrs passed by without a fish. Not a very good outing and was feeling humbled

Decided to do some casting practice under the wind in a spot where maybe he’d hit a schoolie..maybe. took about 10 casts and he casting like a pro.. he started to place the lure on the spot soon after that
In the 5th hr. Finally had a hook up. His 1st striped bass! Thank goodness. No better way to christen a rod than with a bass. Even if it was micro.

Hit the same drift about dozen or so times for 2 more bass before the tide slowed..

High noon headed back outside to find much better conditions compared to the early am.. had to make it back for a soccer game so We just hit a spot on the way back near his beach. 1st drift as soon as the we hit the bottom we had hits.. not too soon after he hooked into a very nice 14” feisty scup. Then a small black sea bass – Action every drift for an hour or so with a mix of different species.

Tried on more spot I like for a bigger on but called soon after to make the soccer game.

He had a blast. Can’t wait to get him into some big fish or more solid action to really hear that drag sing.

Nice Nice day
--------------------------------------------
