May 27, 2009 Mike “Noodles” Carfello Bass – no bunker

Dismal reports on gathering bait but still had to give it a try. So after a galant try in all the spots, I anchored and clammed!! The crew consisted of Noodles, his son Cody, Wire line George and his daughter Amanda, and Eddie the Leatherneck. The ocean was still very sloppy and the weather man was off again with the wind speed.  It was not terrible laying on the Knoll in the wind against the tide and Amanda put the 1st bass in the boat not 5 minutes in. Then Cody hooked up and before we knew it, we put a few bass in the boat although small they were bass. Fishing slowed with the end of the tide but resumed at slack and the bite continued into the flood. With Noodles willing to fish through the night we called it a trip with the bites still occurring. All aboard did a great job in working the clams and the kids were great, nothing beats their smiles when they are holding their first STRIPE BASS!!
