Going down memory lane, I was going through my picture archives and found this.  This was taken at Block Island back in Oct 2009.  This was when I became aware of what a bass killer the parrot magnum bomber is.   I bought it from Twin Maples tackle shop.   After catching lots of keeper bass with it on the island, I figured it had to be as effective in NJ and the rest is history.

You cracked the code. Who would think that color would be good at block island? Lol. Did you have a guide on the island or figure that out yourself....

MoCo 6 PM to 11 PM    I walked out on the jetty and it was a beautiful night with just enough cloud cover to obscure the moon.  Moderate west wind, flat calm except for some long period 2 ft swells.   I didn't see any bait in the water, but it was already dark.   I went out to the tip because it was close to low tide.  Snapped on Mullet Mag Darter and missed a hit on the first cast.  Caught a 27 inch bass on 3rd cast.  It was a sporadic bite through the tide.   Ended up with 7 Stripers, 1 Keeper at 28. 1 at 27 inches and the rest between 20 and 25 inches

Out front moco from about 10pm to 1am last night, top of the outgoing tide.  Bathtub like conditions with just a hint of west wind and super calm surf.  Moonlit sky with occasional cloud cover.  The air temp seemed to stay around 40* till after midnight so it was pretty comfortable.

 

Picked up a schoolie on a teaser and lost a better one in the wash.  I could see some bait getting harassed on the surface in one area, but couldn't get them to respond to a popper.....fun night, happy I jumped off the skunk train.

 

Happy thanksgiving to all!

Went back to the same spot this morning. Same time. Same conditions. First cast, lure hit the water about 25 yards out, flipped the bail and had just enough time to reel in the slack when I got slammed. Line burning and rod bent. Knew I had my pb on the line so I set the hook hard. Heart pounding. Got the gal to the shore break and had her ride a wave onto the beach. Grabbed the leader and started up the slope to dry sand. Another wave came up. Hook came out. Nooooo!!  She started going back to sea. I threw caution to the wind and jumped on that fish like it was a bucking bronco. Straddled her between my legs. Wave recedes but I couldn’t get a good grip before another wave came up and slams us, pushing us up the slope. Now the water is up to my chest and starts receding back down the slope trying it’s best to bring me and my fish with it.  I dug my boots into the sand and somehow held my ground. Finally was able to grab her lip and trudge up the beach. Winded, wet, but freakin’ pumped. 32 incher and pretty chunky.  My pb by 9”.  Fished for another hour and caught four more from 20-23”.

Have a happy Thanksgiving fellas. Please be careful if fishing today from surf. Nasty little push yest with the 2 foot waves that were forming on the waters edge. Sneaky strong. Could lose your footing if not careful.

Got lucky X-ray negative for break. Just a sprain. Thanks. But I’m going to ice it heavy for 48 hours hopefully I can bear it getting back out over the weekend 

Lucky break man, no pun intended. The tough part will be not pushing it too hard when you know its happening out there. Been there, done that !
