With the bait around, the bass on the move and the weather Gods on our side, it didn't take much for SRF, DaveC and myself to talk ourselves into another trip to the ocean front this morning




Dave "Anxiety" C with His 20lbs Bass Just Before it's Release.

It was a slow start to gathering bait. However, once the sun came up the bunker began to show tight into the beach, in say...10-15' of water. As the day went on the pods grew larger until there was literly bunker everwhere. We managed to catch our bass in a little deeper water. However, the majarity of the bait seemed to be pinned up tight to the beach.



SRF Aka, "The Knuckle" With His 26lbs Bass.

Fortunately for us we were able to manage one bass per person. Our fish went 20#, 26#, and 38#. All three where caught on live bunker, in some serious heat, on a flat as glass ocean, with a ton of "no see'ems" swarming like you wouldn't believe :eek: It was 100,000 of them for every bass, until the heat became too much for'em and they split the scene




And Last But Not Least, A Shot Of Me With What Turned Out To Be Our Largest Fish Of The Day~ 38lbs.

All three of our fish were released with the understanding that they will grow as large as possible by eating huge amounts of bunker so that one day someone else (could be you) will get their shot at a monster


Oh Yeh!...While I got ya all here, I'd like to toss something out to those of you who plan on doing the bunker snagging, ocean thing.

If ya see everyone is fishing in tight to the beach and you're making a move, calling it a day or whatever. PLEASE do not run your boat in tight to the beach over top of all the bait and all of the bass!! Head a bit the to the East into deeper water where there are little to no boats and do your running there.

I'm begging ya

Great work Ron & special congrats for releasing those fish for someone else to hopefully enjoy!

Unfortunately, I fear your request for boaters to avoid running over top of bait & fish will probably never reach the ones that need to read it. Most of the good anglers that know what's up are the ones that keep on top of boards like this one. The good anglers they tend to be a little more considerate, and they understand what loud, fast moving motors do to fish. It's the weekend warriors, jet skiers, and pleasure boaters that really don't seem to give a rat's arse for whatever anyone else is doing around them. Full speed ahead tends to be there M.O., and they could care less how close they come to others in the process. It is maddening at times!

Once again, congrats on a good day!

Unfortunately, I think you're right!

Yo Ron

Did you digitally enhance my bass to look like an eel. lol Thats definately not the bass's best angle.

BTW, why do me and Dave C have nick names and you dont......were gonna have to work on that next trip.

Dave took a great pic of that bass, it was a beauty.

The reason for the nick name was to lure you out of Lurking. As you can see my plan worked


I called Dave and told him your fish looks more like 12lbs not 26lbs. Obviously the angle of the dangle makes a difference in the outcome of the pix.

DaveC is indeed a picture taking machine. One things for sure. He get's plenty of practice ;)

Dagnabit, we actually have a Bass Barn SRF sighting! ;) Sam, your bass has length....you can see it. Just don't try to twist it's head off next time. Get out the white-handled, serrated-edged, pliers if you need to.

Don't worry Ron, you got plenty of knicknames....we just don't wanna spoil your image here cooms.


As for my anxiety that day.....let's just say that I'd rather fish in the Bronx zoo than that mess. There are some real iceholes with boats these days. :confused:

You'd really be laughing if you'd have seen Sam and Dave trying to keep them off themselves....LOL! The good news for me was, I wasn't getting torn up that bad. I mean, they were all over me like they were them, they just didn't seem to bother me as much :confused:

I musta had a bad case of "FishOnDaBrain" or something? Or maybe all of them hot Summer days standing at the filet table in Fortescue are finaly starting to pay off. Who knows? Maybe I built up a tollerence for them little buggers


As for Skin-So-Soft. I do have it in my bag. I just rarely ever use it. I bring it along incase I'm fishing with someone who can't deal with the bugs. I personally would rather deal with the bugs then get all slimed up with SSS ;)

No, it means that I'm willing to take my chances that there won't be as many iceholes as last Wednesday. ;) If so then I'll be Dave"anxiety"C again. :D
