Got out of work early today, hit the road at noon. Stopped at my favorite tackleshop(Causeway) because im in the middle of upgrading all my cheap gear that I bought, and replaced a few times during my first season last year. Picked up an aquaskinz plug bag, small so I couldn't overload it. Also bought a new wading belt and new set of pliers (pline). Hit the surf at 1. Went to a spot that I fish often and always catch fish. This time though, after doing research on the internet, I walked right past it and walk aways to unfamiliar but promising territory. It paid off. Caught a half dozen blues on a17 and a27s. Switched to a popper in an effort to try and get away from the small fiesty blues and have a shot at a bass. Caught a half dozen more and then I saw it. That unmistakable Striper swipe at my popped, a hard knock from a tail hit, very little splash, and a bigggg swirl. My second cast back to the same area converted to a 27" bass. Boy did that make me happy. There's just something about fishing new waters on your own and catching fish that I love. Went on to catch a few more blues and then had to attend to other business. All the blues were pretty small though, smallest I've seen all year. I must have missed atleast 20 hits on the popper and tins combined because they were just so small, but fun indeed. Didnt catch anything big, but had a decent size grin on my face on the walk back. Water was clear, little weeds, se wind in my face at 15 mph, lotttttssss of white water and decent surf. 1 to 7 pm(last of incoming and half out outgoing).

Nice report

nice day!! next time a bass whacks your popper but doesn't hook up let the popper sit fro a second or 2 than give it a pop usually the bass is still there and will slam it on that follow up pop!!
