Took a look at the weather and tide for Friday, and decided it was time to try bass fishing at night.

Ryan did me the favor and picked up some very fresh bunker from Cow Harbor Bait and Tackle, and we headed to the ramp.

Broke the inlet at just about 7pm, and the Sound was like a lake. Motored over to a spot in 60 ft, set the hook, and sent down the chunks.

With the sun still up, it didn't take long for the baits on the bottom to attract attention. Unfortunately, who ever left the dogs out never called them back in. Big dogfish/ after another would eat our bunker and roll up our lines. Reeled up and released about 8 of them well past sunset.

Finally, the reel sings...ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.....and Ryan picks it up. Engages the reel, and the circle finds the corner. Nice fight, that we though was a blue considering how hard the fish fought. With the flashlight, we saw that big tail, grabbed the net, as I swam in the first striper of the year for us on the AllyKat. 41 inch, and 30 lbs...fat bass. Turned out that was the last bass of the night.

Went home, and snapped a pic or two, filleted it up and we all had a nice dinner the next night.

Sunday was just too nice not to take the kids out. Loaded them up and motored onto the once again, flat calm Sound. The only waves came from passing boaters. headed right out in front of the Stacks and caught a few fluke and sea robins, but the tide was dying, and very little wind from the east.

Made a run east past the golf course, but had nothing going on.

Headed back west, as I let the kids have some time behind the wheel, and tried to teach my eldest a few things. Stopped at Eatons with the little wind and beginning of the incoming, we managed a slow but steady drift.

Plenty more rock robbins kept the kids interested, until Sammy says..Dad, I got a good one! Well, she did, and she had a nice little battle with the lone keeper fluke of the day, an nice 19.5 inch flattie that came home with us. She is very proud to say she had no help hooking, or reeling in her first keeper fluke.

Ended the day with more kids wheel time and nice cruise in.

Pic is Ed holding Ryan fish, and I forgot the camera card that has Sammy's fluke...maybe I can post that one later.
