Fishing madness

Today I had my friend Bob Pink out for a day of madness. We had Easterly winds all day yesterday and I was a little skeptical this a.m. as to what the inlet would be like. I thought right; we had solid eights at the inlet and with a dumping tide it was a little unnerving, but my Seacraft took it well and we made it out. The fishing grounds had 4 to 6 foot tight swells with a couple of 8's thrown in. Nice. We found the fish quickly and went tight on an Ocean Lure plug. Had him on for a while and pulled the hook.

The fish today were charged up and feeding on herring and macks. This went on for four hours — we would hook up, fight the fish 30 minutes, and pull the hook boat side. We had some of the best topwater takes I have ever seen. Four fish to the boat with clean releases, at least five more hookup's with run off's, and lots of swings and misses. After all that we moved in and found the bass; we had acres of big bass feeding on top with tuna mixed in. Salty's Needles were the name of the game inshore, with the Got-Strypers a close second. All in all some of the best fishing I have ever seen. Hopefully it will continue. I think Bob might need some help getting out of the truck when he gets home..

Thanks for a great day Bob.

  1. Some days just make you step back and appreciate just how special our fishing opportunities are here. We go from spending 4+ hours of almost non-stop bluefin action on topwater to one of the most insane striped bass bites I've seen in 50+ years of fishing. What a day!

    Thanks Josh!
