Whats better than a 8 fish Friday ?

How about a 17 fish Sunday.No rats .Only 2 fish under 30 .About 28-29 inches .Most fish were in the 34-36 inch range.A couple going close to 40.

It was my best yak day ever .

 

Meet up with JimW and a friend DaveS at 3 am on Sunday .For me I did not sleep and pulled a all nighter.Well we hit all the regular spots and each picked up a couple of bass.DaveS left and Jim and I continued fishing .We got caught in a thunderstorm and hid underneath a bridge for a while.Then JimW called it the day.So me being me decided to keep on fishing.I have been experminting with different techniques and all I can saw is finally hit the nail on the head.I actually had to avoid the boat guys who were hounding me trying to figure out what I was doing .They repeatedly came over to one of many spots and started fishing after they saw me land a fish .So I would hit another spot and hook up again.Then a different boat would come over and do the same .At one point I had to beach the yak and wait for the boats to clear and give up .They went fishless.So after fishing for 10 hours and not sleeping for 48 hours called it the day.Had a crowd at the boat launch wanting to talk to me .They got nothing.Its amazing how much time you can put into a spot and miss the obvious stuff.So if ya know fish are around and ya not catching .Start to experiment could make the diffence between a 2 fish day wich I was gonna have or a 17 fish day like I did .Oh Ya one more thing

A striper and some weakfish from me and my friend. Yak was on the roof never made it off. Saw two of our own on the water, RITM and backcountry, they are some hard fishing guys. JoeB, glad you had a good time and congrats on the fish!

Joe V,

 

you be careful! I've seen pictures of your wife and she sounds very friendly on the phone.... don't lose the real keeper for one of those fat bass!! We'll take care of the fat bass for you.

My wife was really pleased with herself on her first yak outting this weekend. I'd bring her along, too, if you can tell me what the stage of the water is going to be in advance. Conditions like they were Sunday would be great but I wouldn't put in there with it raging along. (Like you know it can) Did those you took in the dark Sunday not come out?
