Well as if the slow fishing is not bad enough, mother nature turned on the shower. We fished in very heavy rainfall afternoon. I took the ride and we did catch but lost many more then we boated. Lots of laughs with the guys. The fish were biting weird and it doesn’t take much to have the bass spit it out before you can hook them. Big Fish, Steady and the Hitman were humbled this afternoon. Any day now has to learn that one hand one the rod and one hand on the Coors Light is not conducive in setting the hook. Ames needs the bait to stay in the water. Anthony did not even get a chance . Just one of those days. and yes the rain stopped by time we got back to the dock.
Shitty weather once again and Zemp and his guys were eager to catch on live bait. We did have 5 bites, but the bass were not eating the live ones. Had to chunk to catch. WE had a few and some blues, nothing to write home about.
Took Uncle Mark out again this year along with his crew for some bass fishing. However, after 2 slow trips and having reports of bass in a far away location, I was very eager to make the run. However he had different plans. She needed to be home at 5:30 pm. Talk about having to change plans. SO we did our best and only caught jumbo blues for a few hours before we had to leave. Uncle Mark did catch as did every one else.
Weather great, bass fishing sucked. We are in the funk that happened every year. My bite dried up. The guys fished hard and landed only one bass. What can I say???
Something changed this morning as the fish we were catching left. A big change had us way up north only to boat 2 bass. Lost a few but action a was very slow. With high expectations, all onboard were disappointed. At least the company and scenery were good.
Very good fishing in beautiful conditions until the tide changed. Then the bite died. Action was very good for the morning flood. They had their limit and all the blues you wanted.
The fan got turned on this afternoon and after having the hardest time of the year catching bait, got into some very good action on the anchor with bass and blues. Non stop action in sloppy sea conditions. The guys fished hard and did a great job with multiple hook ups common.
Even though Micky got to the boat 45 minutes late, it did not make a difference for him and his guys. They got into some very good action in very nice weather. Bass bit on the chunk, and on lives too. Nice size fish too.
Chris and his crew were so gung ho for this trip. This day has been very good over the years. Given the bite yesterday evening, I had no reason to think it would be different. It wasn’t, fishing was very good. Lots of action and plenty of white meat to go around.
