1st Yak Bass & 1st Yak Keeper 2013 ~ 5-11-13

1st Yak Bass & 1st Yak Keeper 2013 ~ 5-11-13
Had Some early errands to get a truck battery & antifreeze ,plus
With all the rain ,wind & possible t storms predicted
Yak was the way to go today ..

Probably could of taken the boat but I like THe immediate gratification of a quick entry n exit - especially with possible threatening storm conditions.

Looks like a window between storms too...

Tried a new way to secure to truck --- no good because on he way there a wind gust of near 25 -- blew the yak half way off the roof while in traffic-- I heard it slowly slide over the side and I could see it now hanging next to the truck...Great pull straps ..gently pulled onto the sidewalk and strapped her back down the old way...nearly a disaster

on the water by 1225
----------------
Windy 15-20 gust to 24
Air 63 - over cast - peeks of sun -
Water 57
High @1pm
-----------------
Getting the yak ready was quick . Didn't take much gear this time out. Bare min. All geared up to get drenched before I left the house.

Driving wind in the face as I paddled out. Two strokes up pushed one Stroke back..

Casting in the wind is tough enough...but from the yak it's a little more challenging ..was have a tough time keeping the boat where I wanted to fish..spinning top as was bounced from gust to gust.

1st stop..2nd cast - Fish on! ...nice fish dragged me to him..delayed that 1st run and rolled -- always a good sign of a larger fish..
took 1 nice drag peel and came in..fotgot my measuring stick..so i just used the boats hardware as a Judge..I thought the fish was close but wouldnt find out til later..

also thouht i was in for a great day.. but the bite never devolped..just a lot of small bite misses..and a lot of searching..
Birds were going crazy of some bait but couldnt get close to keep up.

had a solo tern dive on my lure several times ....

took awhile - but found some fish -- too bad they were all micro..it was a micro blitz.. machine gun hits.. could get away from them..

called it quits by 3:20pm

checked the radar once on land..just made it home before the next wave of Heavy rain..

measured the yak hardware...Yep - 1st Yak Keeper of 2013! Nice.
put a permanent mark on. Should of doen this years ago
-----------------------------------
Total: released:
1 Keeper/Yak Bass of 2013 (29"-30")
10 micro school bass (14-16")
20-30+ missed small bites, bumps, hits
-------------------------------------------
-Bunker spotted
-Osprey flying low over the bunker..never dove..
-Fast drift
-Left the DR/GPS @ home -worried about getting it drenched in the rain even though it never really rained on me..

even when it's slow ...it's never dull..
