Very Nice Bay!!! Thats a helluva night of fluking!
My report fished the rocks last night 730-11pm..It was a kinda slow night for me started on the sand since the tide was up..About 8pm im fishing a Crystal Minnow w/a white teaser(looking for some bass) i get hit hard in the hole i was fishing felt like a small bass get it on the beach and to my surprise it was a real nice keeper fluke @ 18.25in
hit the white teaser w/NO GULP!! lol didnt think you could catch them with out GULP anymore(just kidding
)..A few more hits and i headed for the jetty fished the first 1 for about an hour until my Stratic 5000 decided to act up and get a big knot in it
..So head back to my truck to get my spare reel its cheaper Sedona 4000 all i had in the truck..Head to the next rock pile and managed a small 20in bass right at my feet on a black teaser. Nothing else but a few more hits so i decide to call it a night.Stopped on the beach before i left and made a few more casts in the hole i got the fluke...Well last cast i feel the Vision hit the bar and knowing there is a hole there give it a big bounce to drop it in the hole,as soon as i do that i get SLAMMED!! tide is out good and this fish puts on a show jumping 2 times and then making a real nice run..I get him back near the wash and another big jumped i saw him he saw me and that was it he threw the hook
..Looked like a decent bass possibly a keeper but ill never no i was pissed..Packed it after trying to hook back up for another 45mins..I dont think i got a good hook set and the 4000 drag is a bit weak..It was my fault but im blaming it on the weak reel
That Sedona compared to the 5000Stratic is like a Pinto compared to a Hemi Challenger
...SO a bitter sweet night but ill take it!
