Dec 4 2006, remember the date because it was my birthday. I get a call from a friend and tells me to get to the beach, huge blitz. I'm at work, my boss pulls in I tell him about the call. He says isn't today your birthday? Good Luck. I run home grab my stuff which I had put away for the year. I get to the beach at 10 am I drive about half a mile and pull up to one end of the blitzing fish. Caught a few blues, the blitz went West. I stayed where I was until 5pm and had fish pretty much every cast. My friend who was fishing elsewhere, pulled up around 1pm and stayed until the end. All keepers a few over the 40" limit which back then was the bonus fish. Biggest was about 30-35#. I couldn't even guess how many fish I caught. All caught on Swim Shads, bucktails and Large Danny Plugs. Until that day I had never caught a fish on the swim shads (though I didn't fish them much) I used every one I had with me. I went back the next morning, had a few keeper sized fish, then BOOM it was over. It was like someone flipped a switch.
Funny side note. On my way home I called my wife and she asked what I wanted to do for my birthday dinner. I said I'll grab some chinese food, big birthday dinner, LOL. I picked up the food drove back to the house, and I'm sitting in the driveway when my phone rings and my wife asks where I am. I said I'm in the driveway, I stiffened up and can't get out of the truck, give me a few minutes, LOL.
