Got OTW around 6:00 AM yesterday, darned the Helly Hansen's to stay fairly comfy. One rat bass in the harbor. Dropped a good sized fish on a Yozuri popper when he spit the plug after a short run. Visual had it around 20lbs. Outgoing tide, wind shifting but mostly S/SW

Made a move outside and poked along some structure. Nothing with the popper or clouser for about ten minutes until I saw one boil in close to some pilings. Flipped the Chart/White Clouser into the boil within seconds, bump....miss. Haul out and flip it right back in there, bass can be dumb and fortunately a solid take and it was game on. After a good initial run it was time to "get it on the reel". Give and take and after a short fight on the 8wt. slid the fish into the net. Taped out at just over 29" around 12lbs. Fish took the clouser in Chart/White. That was the lone fish in the bay.

Picture and back in the water this time around. Without that gift of a boil I'm sure I would have gotten skunked in that spot..Happy Father's Day.
