April 28, 2013 Harold Myers Bass bite again!!
We have been riding a good streak with my Pennsy trips. After yesterday’s real good trip, could it be ending?? Harold and his crew pulled into the lot right on schedule, along with him was his wife Megan, his father Harry, his father in law Rich, and his 6 year old son Brandon. Any time a father and son step on my boat, is special. This time I have both pe-paws, so 3 generations is extra special. I needed them to get on the good fishing that we have been experiencing. A no brainer for me, I’m going to where I left them biting yesterday. Of course there was no bite so it took some time before we located them. When the starboard down rod bent over, Brandon jumped right on it. With determination on his face, this kid put a hurting on the bass that bit the hard bait. Before long, my son gaffed young Brandon’s really nice Stripe Bass!! He did a great job on the rod as the higher water temps have the fish fighting harder then they have been. So that was the first fish, and as the morning went on, Harold and his crew filled the Striper Hotel to capacity. We had some very nice fish too, Megan boxed a fish that taped 39″ along with 2 other beauties. Rich and Harry also helped as did Harold. Brandon caught 3 total, never lost a fish and handled thses fish like he has done many times. Harold needed a bass to complete his white meat weekend, as he shot a long beard early yesterday. Back at the dock, with the fish laid out on the dock, we all thought that I miscounted on the fish as we were missing a bass. I was sure that they were limited. During the filleting of the fish, I found Harold’s first bass. It appears that Megan’s big bass ate Harold’s fish while in the room with a view!!!! Size does matter…..Harry, I’m just fluking around….Thanks once again to a super crew, a family that just wanted to have fun and got rewarded with the super tasting white meat……Your guys made my day!!! Brandon, you did great today, you have a spot on the back wall next year–for sure….
