    Well, I had to use a floating holiday at work by the end of this week or else I'd loose it. That plus a break in the whether plus it was overcast, plus I thought they were going to stock today. So you see, it all added up for a striped bass. I was sixth in line at 5:30. It was chilly and light icy breeze at launching. I paddled one way and look back, about 1/2 mile to my back I see birds working a cove. I paddle my ass off, which was easier than a good day at LJ. When I finally reached the cove the action is over, just birds sitting like nothings going on, like "what". I look down in the 10' of water and see two bass swim under me, one well over 10lbs the other maybe 2-3. I cast a plug in the direction their headed, 5 cranks and I'm on. But it's feels like I got the smaller one. The line peels across the front of my kayak and I'm on for my first fresh water tow. Definitely not the small one. I'm on my mitchell 330 with 8lb floro, and it's a steady tow with no drag. Maybe ten minutes at yakside and I'm face to face with a nicer grade stripper. But It's hooked in the eye socket. Big flap and I'm left with eye skin. Thought I was gonna gaff my 1st fresh water fish :).Three hours later and I'm into some cookie cutter bass on the 3" anchove swimbait. I get a nicer grade of bass almost every 1/2 hour for the next 3 hours. It was an above average day for me today. Maybe one day I'll have someone to talk to.

    Cool sights for me today were:
    1)That 10+ bass that swam under me.
    2)Some kind of bird of pray swooped down not more than 50' and *PaTack* took flight with a trout I wouldn't mind catching.
    3)Father and son (maybe 6yo) on the point casting for striped bass. The kid was getting more distance than me. I thought it would've been a cool picture.

    Landed at 1:30pm. Marina dude said there were no striped bass caught brought past him.

    Thanks Carl, I got his eye. So, if anyone catches a fish with a patch it's mine.


    Kenny, I'm not really into fresh water but I gotta get my fix somehow. Sometimes I catch my son's bluegill in his fish tank with my pocket fisherman.

    The bird was probably an Osprey (or Fish Eagle as they're sometimes called).

    It was big, brown, some white scraggly feathers on his neck. And, it was shreaking real loudly while flying off with the fish.

    Rick, that was a 10lb large mouth. The lineside was way bigger. I was casting for the LM I didn't know the SB was there. Funny thing, none of the fish were hooked in the mouth using the big trout. All on the outside. This common?

    Tim,

    Didn't want to ruin your karma bro. Back in the day , I probably fished 6 years to get just one like that.

    You did good and should be very proud!!!!!!!

    Congrats,

    Rick

    Sounds like they were coming up and smacking that big swimbait...

    The first hook is hooked in the mouth, and it looks like the stinger got them when the tried to run.

    Do bass always bite the head first?

    Nice day on DVL with the stealth approach kayak. I will keep my eyes peeled for a big one with an eye patch. If I find it, should I poke it's other eye out and wait for you?:D

    Good job on the LMB. DVL has been my go to lake during the off season, but with the ramp closure I haven't been able to decide whether to shore fish (UGH!) or rent one of their floating beer cans (double UGH!). The 'yak thing is a possibility, but I'll have to throw shit out of the wife's side of the garage to store it. I just want my ice jigs to get wet this year.
