    1ST POST FOR DRAGGIN BAIT- SHANNON & I ONLY 2 CANCELLED OUT GOING TO CAT. BACKSIDE WHERE WE WERE LAST SATURDAY WITH THE PARKING LOT-TRYING FOR THE GHOSTS 3RD ATTEMPT THIS SEASON. WE ROUND THE CORNER AFTER A WET RIDE OVER FROM NICE WIND CHOP & TURN THE CORNER TURN THE BAIT TANK ON FOR A BOUT 3 INCHES OF WATER & THAT IT-CHECKED FUSE & FOR RESTRICTIONS-NO LOVE. SHUT OFF VALVE FOR PUMP & BUCKETED WATER TO FILL UP TANK FOR OUT END OF CARD FREE SQUID FROM THE CARNAGE. GOT SOON TO BE DEAD SQUID AND ANCHORED UP SOUTH OT THE PACK OF MAYBE 15-20 BOATS & PUT OUT A COUPLE OF DROPPER LOOPS & STARTED NAPPIN-GOT UP AT 4:00 TO TANGLED LINES DUE TO SMALL SHARK-MADE A MESS-CUT LINES-RETIED WORKED IT FOR ANOTHER SMALL SHARK & DECIDED TO MOVE AT 7:00. WIND PICKING UP MADE THE MOVE TO THE INSIDE ROUNDED AVALON PASSING UP BIG GAME 90 AND A COUPLE OF OTHER SPORTIES TO THE NEXT BAY NORTH OF AVALON. PULLED UP THE KELP IN ABOUT 40FT OF WATER & PITCHED 1/2 EGGS WITH DEAD SQUID, I GOT ROBBED TWICE & SHANNON GETS HOOKED-WALKS AROUND THE BOAT ONCE & 35LB SEA BASS HITS THE DECK-FINESSED ON 15LB P-LINE SHORT PUMPED. HERE COMES THE POACHERS-WETERLY PULLS UP-SHANNON THROWS OUT 20LB RIG & SETS IT IN THE ROD HOLDER TO RETIE THE 15LB & IT GOES OFF-MY FISH-15LB WHITE SEA BASS HITS THE DECK-1ST WHITE SEA BASS FOR BOTH OF US-HERE COMES THE ELDORADO- SQUID GETTING TOSSED EVERY WHERE-WE RESET OUT DRIFT FOR NO MORE TAKERS & NO LOVE FOR THE SPORTIES. ITS 8:30 & WE GOT LIMITS-TIME TO GO. WE HEAD UP NORTH TO A NICE LITTLE HONEY HOLE THAT NORMALY HAS ALOT OF SHEEPHEAD OTHER KELP DWELLERS, CATCH & RELEASE A TON OF SMALL CALICOS, 3-4 LB MACKS & PERCH-1 NICE SHEEPHEAD ALSO-ALL USING THE BAY BASS GEAR & SMALL HOOK W/SQUIDHEADS. ALL THE SUDDEN SHANNON GETS RIPPED MAYBE LARGER MACK?-NO RAT YELLOW. I SWITCHED TO PITCHING WHOLE SQUID AFTER THAT. ABOUT AN HOUR OR 2 AFTER THAT WE HEAR EXPLOSIONS IN THE DISTANCE-YELLOWS BLOWING UP ON THE OUTSIDE-WE ARE ON THE ANCHOR IN 40FT OF WATER-I HAD A SCRAMMBLED EGG TIED PREVIOUSLY & PITCHED IT AS FAR AS POSSIBLE BUT ABOUT 20-30 FT SHY AND STARTED CRANKING 3 OR 4 CRANKS & BENDO IM HUNG. BACK TO THE SHALLOW COMES MR YELLOW & AROUND THE ANCHOR & SHANNON STICKS HER IN THE HEAD & ON THE DECK-WE USED THE REST OF THE BAIT ON THE LIGHT GEAR AND CALLED IT A DAY-NICE EASY 40 MINUTE RIDE HOME. A TRIP THAT STARTED OFF BAD TURNED AWESOME-THANK YOU LORD!
