Doing the back bays in the dark

Post  CaptFrank on 8/28/2012, 9:48 am

Out and about with my buddy Rich last night. Covered a bunch of our favorite back bay spots. Tide was screaming out and the wind was hard out of the SW. Wasn't the greatest combo. Our first 4 stops were fishless. Then we hit a favorite bait spot to get a handful of Bunker to use later, in hopes of a Flounder or Weakie. While there something larger than the usual bait plips blew up, then did it again. Rich grabbed his rod and first cast nails a nice Weakie. Couldn't buy another touch though. Next 3 stops resulted in a bunch of tiny tail tugging Blues. Our final stop was covered up in Blues too. I tried using the Bunker along the bottom, but had no takers. Switched up to a yellow bucktail and landed a nicer sized Blue. Thought about another spot for the turn of the tide, but decided against it and called it a night. Not a Striper to be found all night, and everyone we ran into said the same. Fun as always.

Tight Lines!

Ahab, as i posted, I thought it was a tiny Spot, but wasn't certain. It was similar, but seemed a bit different. It was only about 1.5". No strips or spot , just speckles. Couldn't get a good picture of it. It was bright silver/yellowish in color.
