Re: 2012 Big "D" spring fishing reports(post here)
Sorry for the delay went from the boat to the club(s) then off to work this morning anyway back to the report....
Got on the water by 4pm hit one of my fav spots and nada so fished in between two bridges as I glassed fish jumping continuously so we anchored up and I worked the sabiki thinking they were skipjacks but no takers but keep getting 12" bass and perch so I cut the dorsal fin and live lined perch and eels and they both produced bass up to 27". Pop lost a fish much bigger I would say jus judgin on the runs it made but his knot came undone (typical) he won't use my knots!
Once the clouds moved in it got windy but right before tht things were hot in end we got 1 bass on salt herring 24" 2 bass 24"& 27" on live perch 1 bass 25" on live eel. 2 big cats around 10lbs both over 30" and several other 3-5lb cats all on creek chubs. Never did figure out Wht was jumping all over some were big but just never got a good look even tho they jumped every couple seconds for a few hours
I also believe I had a flathead cat take a perch long run stop then a small run stop and then a third smaller run and when I finally flipped the bait runner and put the breaks on it I pulled it out of his mouth and upon reeling in the perch was scraped clean of scales and had puncture wounds like tiny needles punctured his side. Either a flat or a huge channel. Idk
Lol and I can't even remember the last time my boat had a skunk lol I won't stop fishing til I catch something that's why I end up fishi alone most times cause noone wants to b stuck on a boat with me when I'm not catching cause well be out there a while.
Haven't been on the water in 3 weeks and it drove me crazy so glad to be out there.
