Had to stay local today.
New "kid" on the boat and didn't know the routine. My regular ho Jay had to work. So broke my UPS driver Mike in with an easy day to learn the ropes.
Fished the local reefs again for a slow steady bite on the sandies with a couple of Calicos thrown in for extra measure. All good grade. Tossed a lot fish back. Photographed and released calicos.
Lots of fog. Breezy mid day then back to fog. Most fish in the 18" inch range. A few under and several over. Biggest calico went 19". Biggest hog sandie went 25" + . Mike got the big calico and big sandie. His "best ever" on both! I told him I'd put him on the fish! Made his week.
Lost several BIG bites to unknown kind of fish. Never got them to color but a good fight anyway. Caught a nice Cabezon 17". Not sure if they were open sent him back down to get bigger. But I now know I could have kept him for some tasty eats! Damn, couldn't find my regs book!
Kept 8 fish for friends and family. Lots of catch and release. Lost count of totals.
Off the water by 3p.m.
Great day on the water with friends.


Thanks,

Great report, nice fish... one question though, what the heck is that object next to your left elbow in the first shot? Great looking boat, but was curious what was mounted on the side?

Yep...... old fashioned meat grinder.

I like the idea of mounting it on a board then inserting it in a trolling socket.

Thanks for the pix & outanding job on the bass.

Wow what a fish!! That guy is gonna remember that trip for a long time. I think you might have got him addicted Gary.


PS. Great job Gary putting him on the fish. Your knowledge and skill as a fisherman is amazing!!:worship:

(the above is only my sorry attempt at kissing ass so I don't lose my seat on the boat)

Thing is a biggie.
If you got a photo of the fish on the measuring table, you should submit it to the BASS Club Forum Monthly Big Bass Contest
