hey all
i went out today and fished the 3 hours up to high water in a
gulley strewn deep water mark...swell was enourmous and
sometimes scary...however it screamed bass the second i
saw it...about an hour in i landed my first fish on a shiner
that tipped the scales at a shade over 5lb...unfortunetly this
fish had to go to the pan as he nailed it so hard he took a treble
deep in the gills and was bleeding...the second fish came an
hour later and was a spectacular take..as i was reeling my
shiner about 8ft from the high rock i was on i saw a fish
come out of nowhere and follow so i slowed it right down as
i was running out of room to wind in...and sure enough bang
snaffled it right in front of my eyes and under my feet....the
drag sang for about 6 mins and a savage fight followed before
a 6lb bar of silver came to shore...what a buzz that was...went
home happy as larry...hope that kind of sport continues...
****.
