After canceling yesterdays trip due to wind and not having a trip for today, I was doing yard work and noticed the wind was very light and would be a good day to fish. I called up a couple of friends for a quick afternoon trip. We left the dock at 12:30 to fish the out going tide in the back bay. Found the water back there very clean and 60 degrees. Water was too nice. I could actually see bottom almost everywhere we fished, which is very unusual down here anymore. It was even a tougher tide than what I fished on Monday as there was only 3 feet 6 inches of high water making for a very sluggish tidal flow at all creek mouths and rip lines. Even with all the bright sun and blue skies we found 7 bass and one bluefish that took chartreuse/white clousers on intermediate lines.
I got the first fish and the nicest one of the day. It looked to be a hybrid bass as it was 22 inches long and chunker than most fish that size.
The other two friends got small stripers and a 3 lb bluefish. Paul was going to keep the blue for dinner, but at the dock decided he didn't feel like cleaning it so we released unharmed out of the live well.
Near the end of our trip the wind shifted from the west to the south and picked up a bit and we called it a day and were back to the dock by 4:00 pm. We had fun afternoon and got some fish.
