May 11, 2009 Greg White Bass “livelining”

We had a first catching bait as Erwin jr on his first toos put 2 weaks in the boat, 15 1/2 lbs and 12lbs, pictures were taken and both with were released. Then he loaded the tanks and off we went. Fun bunch of guys, and with 2 videos camaras onboard, I was expecting explosive fishing today. Once there, the screen remain blank as very little life was marked. Action came quickly as the blues found the live bunker very tasty. So after fighting off the blues a bass was hooked and landed by Bob put the first bass in the boat and a little while later, John caught another.  The striper bites were few and far between and the guys realized soon that either they have to hook these fish right away or let them run, and either you hook them or you dont, no in between. Lots of laughs and a little chop breaking combined with the nice weather and good crew made for a nice day on the water. Too bad the bass did not feel the same way………..
