May 15, 2009 Brian Skerlanitz Bass

With the constant SE keeping the ocean temps cold, I decided to make a drastic move and fish a spot that I have not fished in 3 years. We anchored in a very comfortable spot and got the baits into the water. Doug wasted no time in hooking the first fish within the first 10 minutes and then Jim sr hooke dinto a nice fish and in the first hour we put 6 real nice bass in the boat. This action all happened on the “bad tide” so when the action slowed I told the guys to get prepared for a hot bite in about a hour. Well that hour came and went and so did the next one. Not even the blue swould chew on the fresh bait. We had a bite here and there but nothing like we had experienced when we first got there. Brian, both Jims and Doug fished hard the whole day long and Doug added 1 more right before we called it a day. This was the most productive┬átrip of the week and I am looking foward to getting back out to the ocean. Tomorrow will be a big day………..
