With ½ bushel of clams and three fresh bunker, I launched at the Keyport ramp at 5:30 am in favorable conditions, Noreast wind 5 to 10mph.
First, I scoped out the area recommended by a fellow Bass Barner,Phil K., anchoring in 15 feet of water I quickly had action, And just as quickly was cut off 3 times in a row.

Feeling confident and optimistic I ventured out across the bay watching the fleet gather on both sides of the Reach. I headed to the Statin Island Side, read some fish and tossed the hook in 23 feet. Tossing a chunk and a clam in no time flat had a healthy 12 pound bass in a one handed however awkward net. That was it for the bass, traffic no doubt having it?s effect.

For the day I boated 3 blues, 1 bass and lost 6 other bluefish on what was my first trip on the ?right day? in my 14 foot ?Sea Monkey?.

By the way, there was bunker activity outside Great Kills, I snagged two after some work but was not able to capitalize.
