SB~ Bass in the Rain~ 5-19-13

SB~ Bass in the Rain~ 5-19-13

All geared up for the rain – Wrapped the DF in a plastic bag and bungee It down . worked great. Dry.

To the ramp @ 7 – I love overcast days & Light rain is no problem ~
Water just beginning to slowly move…..good timing.

---------------------------------------------------------
Wind S SE @ 5-10 grey overcast n light rain – wind picking up by 11
Air 59
Water 56-57
High 646
--------------------------------------------------

There’s an early morning spot I find irresistible. Haven’t had fish here in a year ++ gotta stop even though it’s a very slow tide..
2nd cast ... light ,light almost nonexistent pick up --- felt like a small schoolie didn’t turn on until he passed near the boat –ZZZzZZZzzzzZZ - turned out to be a Keeper bass 31".. that’s 2 days in a row – that my first fish of the day is a keeper ~ always a great way to start

Dropped to other fish – one about keeper size judging by the 1st run..but popped off.. … a few more drifts picked up another schoolie 23” as the light wind began followed by light rain.. time to GO>

2nd Drop---- fish on 1st cast – schoolie and 4 more bass to in 7 casts..including a Keeper Around 33” which I dropped boat side trying to hand grab his mouth for 15 seconds attempting to not Have a Hook imbedded in my hand…no big deal as he was heading back anyway.. nice fish.

Got slow after the big guy…and blues mixed in big time. Still had a consistent enough bite to stay put though the tide..
moved around a little to change the drift and it worked – Nailed another nice 32” fish ~ one of those casts that just look right..and the retrieve felt right..1 out of 100 times this works..

Yak follower – mugger. as I caught the 32:
“ is that a Keeper?”
Yep.
“can I have it?”
No. I am releasing it….
“oh ..ok.”
Really guy? Really.. the fish market is on land..geez.
It’s bad enough he was mugging up on me crossing the bow within feet as I casted several times.. but asking to keep some else’s fish 2 seconds after they caught it is just terrible etiquette - terrible.
He was actually a nice guy – just no understanding of personal space. Novice.

Really pretty much Ended the day with that keeper 32"
– just blues left and the Last fish = blue .. which means >>>>> Time to go
Done @ 11 as the wind and rain picked up and tide dropping fast..

-----------------------------------------------
Total: all released.
3 keeper bass ( 31",32",33")
10 short bass (18-26")
10+ blues
No robins? - odd
------------------------------------------------
- yak guy .. Is that a keeper .. Yes....Can I have it? No..clueless
that he was invading my space..he'd troll right in front of me several times.mug mug..
Not really happy to see the blue around early – oh well. At least they can add some excitement –but I prefer to see them more towards July…
- rain ,rain ,rain and more rain all day ++++

4 hrs felt like it went fast!
Great morning in the rain ~ really loved this morning.
