April 5, 2012 First Bass of the Year!
Erwin Jr. ran out into the bay with Dean, Brian and Mike for an afternoon of striper fishing. After coming accross some diving birds, we put the lines in and had 2 bites very quickly. Things started to come together and then just died. So, we trolled to the areas that typically produce fish early in the the season and sure enough, fish on! Dean put a real solid 37″ bass in the boat. After that, Brian and Mike each followed up with keepers. After a few more bites, the guys decided to pack it in. Came back to the dock with 3 keepers for the table; a couple others swam away to fight another day. Sure felt good to run the boat and ice down a few striped bass once again. Not a bad way to start the year!!
