After seeing the reports all week i was soooooo happy to be the water this morning
A buddy hauled his boat to my neck of the woods and we set out around 9am ... bait is kind of pain but i stoolied up enough to get us started.
Slow start, no runs early on. Made a move during high-slack tide and things picked up during the outgoing for us.
We ended up boating 4 , nothing big but had to take a few pics since they were the 1st of the year
My buddy had a real screamer of a run, she was trucking, had it on for just a min when it came unbuttoned
would have liked to see that one.
Seemed much better than avg.
What was a real shock to me was when i had something hit my rod, no run or anything, i figured i'd check my bait and was like ... there is definately something on the other end, i could feel the weight and knew it was a fish, just odd ????
SO i see flash, over 24" for sure, my buddy gets it in the net ... we look at each other and are like WTF ???
This big arse Walleye had taken my live Herring !!! Pretty cool !
First time we have ever had that happen ... a PB Eye for me too, tipped the scales at 6lb 9oz
Except for the wind which was brutal at times ... it was a nice day to be out for sure.
It slowed down mid afternoon, was finally able to jig a few Herring though.
All our Stripers were caught on live herring.
Get to do it all over again tomorrow !!
