Bassin' in the rain 3/10/18
« on: March 12, 2018, 02:25:47 PM »
Been a minute since I took the boat out. Pops wanted to break in his new 13fishing setup Dre gave him for workin on his boat. Took him and my lil bro to the bay to see if the bass were on the chew and hopefully get a shot at a halibut or two. Launched at pepper park at 730 Saturday and headed to a couple waypoints I have caught halis at. 1st cast my bro and pops double up.



Then my bro and I did the same next cast!
His 1st sand bass!



We caught over a dozen on the 1st drift. This was about the average size spotty for the sesh


3rd drift I get slammed on the drop and connect with something bigger than the spots! Head shakes and a lil drag pull had me thinking it was the hali I was waiting for! But I was wrong, as I see a rare southbay legal turd roller come up from the flat!



The bass were seriously on the chew we averaged 10 fish a drift, and a couple times we got triple hook ups on multiple drifts! All the doubles and triples seemed to be mid sized fish and the legals seemed to be solo, or we jus couldn’t ever seal the deal when getting bit by multiple better fish lol



It was raining/ drizzling on and off pretty much the whole time, but round 10 we could see the rain coming from IB and decided we were only makin one more drift to beat the weather to the ramp. On what should have been the last cast I get absolutely smoked and hook up wit a hali only to have it come unbuttoned! So we make a few more last casts, and of course I’m feelin like sh!t for losing what was probably a legal, and reel up my line to head home when my pops gets  crushed! Got her pops? He’s quiet! My bro reels up and gets the net, pops? What’s up? Good one son! Aight jus let her fight u got 17lb mono, brand new mustad jig head! You’re good! He plays her out for a minute and I see her coming up! Legal pops! Keep her in the water! I take the net from my bro and scoop her up and she’s in the boat! I stick her on the board and she’s 24” she wouldn’t sit still so I stuck her wit the gaff for a pic 😊



She’s gonna be some tasty tacos this weekend !





Good times wit the fam on the water! can’t ask for much more, well good food to top it off is about as good as it gets!
