The opener of sea bass was Friday, and if you had good sea legs, that WAS definitely a plus! Fishing was good but there was a price to pay! Big swell and hard currents but the fishing was good! There was a few guys with limits of 10.
A lot of shorts to keep everyone on their guard, and a occasional keeper and also a few cod mixed in the catch. Check out the pictures on Facebook of the trip and hopefully we will see your face on there holding a nice fish!
The boat is on the railway this week getting her bottom painted and we will be sanding and painting the hull and sides. We are so looking forward to fishing, the winters can be long and boring, and we hope to see you there!
The bite you really couldn't feel very well due to the fact that 25- to 30-knot wind was whipping through your line, and the fact that the 4- to 6-foot chop with 3-second intervals was beating the boat around like a washing machine, and also with only a handful of fishermen, it was the best trip of the fall blackfish season. The weather was perfect, anchoring conditions were good, the small fish were there, but only a handful of keepers.
Fishing was slow but as the day went on we managed to catch about a dozen keepers and three keeper sea bass and of course on the very first wreck we catch a nice 20-inch fluke!If you're not sure about the weather, please go to Weather on our home page and hit Inshore Forecast.
