November 30, 2008 Toys R Us Randy BASS!

NOAA had posted the forecast and we knew what we were getting into. So with a hard east wind, sleet and heavy rain, we headed towards the grounds in hopes of finding some bass. It did not take long before the fishfinder lit up and the guys were into bass. Not big fish, but any bass in these conditions were a bonus. After a few moves, trying to find larger fish, I decided to make the move south in hopes of hooking a few keepers. Keith was hot as he could not keep the stripers from hitting his jig, Rodney and Zempe held their own as my mate was kept busy unhooking bass after bass. The readings were incredible and the fish were chewing hard. However, being the only boat out on thishot striper bite and with the weather getting worse it was decided to pick up and head for home. If this is the last trip of the year, what a trip it was. We will talk about this next yearwhile swimming live ones in hopes of hooking these fish after they get a chance to grow alittle…………
