Rob and Mike and the boys Bass 2017

It was the shakedown trip for the Scales n Tales, we started just little later then usual this year due to my son getting married!!! As we headed towards the bay, you can feel the cold air as the hard SE blew. We had a spot in mind but first had to check out where my buddy had done very well a few hours earlier. Wind against made it a bit sporty and after a hour of NOTHING made a run in hopes of finding something that was worth wild to fish. We didn’t go far when my Furuno lit up. Lines in and it was game on!!! We had 4 on and the crew didn’t very good in boating everyone of the nice size bass. It didn’t take long to fill the hotel with young Matt boating the big fish of the day at 36lbs!! A beauty any time of the year, especially this early in the season. He did a great job fighting the fish as it took almost 200’of line after the hit. It was catch and release until the marks and bites disappeared. As the sun was getting low, and the cold air really taking hold, we all were glad to pull the lines and head for the marina. Did I mention that ROB did his part in releasing a few bass while they were still 150’from my boat???DSCN1063DSCN1067
