Lost many offshore trips due to weather. Had a very good shark trip with Josh Romito and his wife. Fluking was so so. A very weird month to say the least. The middle of the month was the best inshore and off. Got Ryan into a very good YFT! Rich and his crew into 2 back to back fluke trips. Tony and his daughter on her first fluke trip ever also went very good. Zempe and his crew always manages to put it together. Bob Steady Centamore also puts the meat in the box by the end of their trips.
Knowing the hot BFT that is going on offshore and not being able to get in on it very frustrating. Ian and his crew were back in hopes of repeating last years action. Weather was super and the fishing was off the charts!! All casting plugs and swim baits. Exceptional surface action!!! A awesome way for to the start of my bluewater fishing!
Finally a solid bite on the live bait out front most days. This is my favorite!!!!Some days its as fast as you get the bait in the water, other days it takes little longer, but it happens!!nice big fish also arrived, making this very very nice!!
When we could get out fishing remains very solid, in many areas and many tactics.Conditions dictate where and how I fish. Wide range of bass from 30″to 30lbers.
Started Sunday morning with Brian Hurst and his crew with surface feeding bass responding to all types of lures! Then the pm trip turned to live bunker for Anthony and his crew, again with great action and exciting strikes as the bass chased the live bait. Then it changed to a red hot 2 rods at time MO-JO bite for the mid week bite. Mother nature threw Jim Andrews a big curve on Saturday morning before we finished very strong on the pm trip.
Early for this bite but the bass wanted the live ones this week. We will see how long it lasts. But when they want to eat its fast and furious!! Filmed another TV show with Dan Leonard which went very good. Ian finished the week off with great surface action with his crew which consisted of 3 kids!!
