A Good Weekend Fishing
Friday afternoons bass trip was very good as Mike F. and his crew landed ten keeper bass along with some shorts, blues and five keeper-sized blackfish. Saturday the weatherman got it wrong but the hot bite continued. The morning tide produced Six nice bass and three blackfish for Bill and Lance. A try for fluke did not work out as only a couple shorts were caught in the east wind, rain and fog. Back to the bass and we picked five more on the afternoon tide. Sunday it took a while to get the bass bite started and then it was hard to get them in the boat. We landed four but pulled hooks on at least ten others. A try for fluke and we found fish in a few different areas. We had two hot drifts on the change of tide at my favorite early season spot but the bite shut down when the tide ran hard. A good weekend for everyone except the Muffin Man, he had a tough day.
