1st keeper bass 2013 ~ 5-4-13

1st keeper bass 2013 ~ 5-4-13

Back @ it with Dave on Sat. ( it is his B-day_ but he didn't tell me..til after the trip.)

Cold morning 45..Wind made it colder..
Met @ ramp @630
Underway @ 645

Saw my friend Tom heading out to Fluke - he ended up with 4 short fish & 1 keeper with 3 Fisherman…Slow.

--------------------------------------
Air 45-65
Wind ene 10-15 gust 18+ bad wind again..
Switched s for 5 min- but east all day not great
Water 49-56
H 746am
-----------------------------------------
Didn’t mess around this Am searching too much .. went to a spot we both agreed on 1st.
Good choice as we Both had 1st cast hits -a good sign.

But still took a while to boat a fish…and Dave did 1st with a small 17”.

we actually had a pretty good drift with the wind speed just in the wrong direction…Casting with the wind was the way to go today.

about 6 schoolies in…I Had a great fish on ...rolled and rolled -- drag was too tight -- popped off...man ..I couldn't believe it.. I checked them all the night before too..but I must have missed something???? Brand new reel too.. shoot..Kick in myself ...

It happened early enough that I knew I'd get a shot at a redemption fish
but it was 2 hours later:

Just a keeper @ 28.25"--- 1st of 2013
Always nice to get that 1st one-
While the fish was hooked I look down into the water column and see one.. .. then 2, then a whole school ! following the hooked fish trying to take what the hooked fish had.....crazy Sight – looking down @ all those keeper sized fish+ swarming the hooked fish was nuts....So cool, that I completely stopped focusing on the fact that I had a keeper on…and really tried to get Dave a Hook up – but no takers..
landed and released…

Just shorts the rest on the day – and it slowed to a halt 2hrs past High….only one fish in that time .. but in a new area.

Dave was having a hard time today..only 3 fish and some very uncharacteristic tackle troubles...the mother of all wind knots.

Called @ Noon.

Total----------------------------------------
1 keeper bass 28.25"

16 shorts ( 15"-27")
5-6 follows
1 lost 33-34"
--------------------------------------------------
- Aquarium follows were an awesome sight.
- tons of man-o-war style jelly fish in the water - some very large
- Bone head move of the day : I was watching with great concentration on a boat navigating a shallow area while powering down an outgoing tide …not paying attention and side swipe the red channel marker buoy_ ouch - paint swap - 1st time in my boating history I bumped a buoy.. geez..no damage to the boat but the pride is bumped..
- had an old timer approach like an old friend while we spoke about the day and we did a story swap. He was hilarious @ 85yrs young
- New sheath - Off shore Angler By Bass Pro - well worth the bargain amount $$ - a perfect fit to the P-line 7.5" pliers.
- Everything returning to very green this week but still very cold in the Am..

Things are looking better each Weak.. weakfish reports coming in from all over already it is a GREAT sign. - South -South west - North east , North west ,east.. now we just need a few North..( I spoke too soon just saw a report of a 21” on 5-5-13 in PJ harbor by Craftis)

A great spring day – just wish the wind would give it a rest.
