We missed Friday due to an altenator going bad and I could not get back to the boat with a replacement in time for the trip. Sorry guys we'll get 'em next time. Sunday we set out on the bay in choppy and windy conditions with the usual crew and special guest stars Randy "Togaholic" and Anthony "The Barker". The blackfish bite was picky and once again those that went lite had the bite. Bigger blackfish (the keeper sized ones) are much more wary and not as aggressive as the shorts and can be landed on tackle as lite as ten pound braid as has been proven over the last few weeks. One fantastic angler put on a display of fishing brilliance and landed a twenty four pound striped bass on a Penn Battle 2000 filled with ten pound braid and twenty pound fluoro carbon leader. We had bass blowing up on bunker schools all around the boat and some were lost and some were landed. Roger won the pool with a tog over six pounds and "Jiggin' Jack was high hook landing the most blackfish on a freshwater bass rod. Randy had a big one come off the hook and never recovered. A fun day on the bay and fish for everyone.
