The super moon in full effect today……..
We had a tough bite on Friday, especially in the late morning to early afternoon. Today was no different for Rodney and Austin. Don’t worry I found an excuse. It falls under the letter S in the excuses rolodex.
Here is a pic of the culprit.
That out there on the horizon is the super moon and that damn thing has the bass eating like crazy at night. Check out the point in the pic…..it wasn’t long ago the water was all the way up to the tree just right of the super moon. Grrrrrrrrrrrr…..
Ok let’s talk about the morning bite. We were one of the first to hit the water this morning and wow did we blast the fish early. We are talking 50 plus in about 3 hours of fishing. It was just borderline stupid……pure bedlam. Rodney had the hot rattle trap and he could not reel that thing back to the boat without at least one fish. The good news once again today was the quality. Our biggest fish weighed in at 5-10. (was an eye check…..I had it at 6 lbs.) We had two others in the 5 lb class as well, but a slew of fun 1.5 to 3 lb fish. No big girlies came out to play either and there was absolutely no offshore bite for us……as in 0 bites. Well I’ll take that back, we did have one bite and it had our hearts racing for a brief moment or 3.
That beast was lurking in 21 foot of water……major bummer. Here are a few more pics from today’s action.
Amanda thanks for hooking these men up with a great trip!
