I managed to get out with my friends on the Karen Ann again today 2nd day in a row and they did not disappoint!

Today Capt. Vinny got out early on the skiff with Capt Rich & their charter group so they could get on the bait.With this in mind I was on the big boat today with Capt. Eddie.

When we got to the grounds they had the bait in the well and the net FULL OF LIVE BAIT waiting for us already. We put it in the boat and started fishing. Vin & Rich's charter had fast action in the AM. They boxed their limit before the sun got high and they then played catch & release.

Fishing was slower for us today.I was one of the 1st to hook up on a live bunker with a nice keeper then I didn't have another fish until the last drift of the trip which finally came for me on a chunk.Yesterday I has 10 bites myself resulting in 6 hook ups. Today Bass were pickier not really eating the live bait too well. We also limited out though it took us longer and most of the fish took the chunks today. I only decked 2 keepers today myself bc I held out fishing the live bunker trying to keep the faith hoping for the bigger fish to come feed again.

Had I fished more chunks I most likely would have done better. The fish today seemed a bit smaller than yesterday in general, but hey bending the rods catching keepers is great any day! High hook on our boat did deck 6 only retaining limit, and our big fish was around 16-17lbs.

They had one bigger around 20#s on the other boat. I think we decked 13 keepers only keeping the limit for 5 guys. The weather was great! Thanks again for another SWEET day on the water Capt. Eddie!

Like I said yesterday, and I quote a line from the great rock band Chicago (IT'S ONLY THE BEGINNING). C'MON OUT AND FISH FOR BASS. THE FISH ARE GONNA GET EVEN BIGGER, AND THE FISHING IS GONNA GET EVEN BETTER!!! You'd have to be nutz to miss this!
