AUG 31 FISHING REPORT

GOT to dock this morning and found my bait pen had been hit again and completely cleaned out. They better not comeback as I have a pleasant surprise for the lousy bastards
Plan this morning was to look for some Trout (weakfish) and managed to get one 20″er for tag and release and lost another at the boat but that was it.Look around for bass but never had a blast on my popper, Couple of Bluefish on bucktails
I’m going to have fun catching the scum that is raiding my bait pen

AUG 29TH -30TH FISHING REPORT

yESTERDAY ,29TH went looking for bass without success ,never saw anything that look like a bass, 5 bluesfish
Today 30th ,I tried some different spots and got one bass on a popper and missed another that apparently was cross-eyed as he missed the lure
I’m still pissed about losing my trained Spots .world is full of scum bags

AUG 28TH FISHING REPORT

After 7 days of playin gwith my Grand kids I finally go back into serious fishing. Got to my dock this morning to find some ASSHOLE raided my spot pen and pulled out 40-50 of the best spots.The world is full of assholes. Headed out looking for bass on an ugly morning and found no bass. I was told last week was a tough week for bass .Started raining and figured I would stop and try to refill my spot pen only to find out they were not biting either and managed to only get one Spot.May have to try some new locations tomorrow

AUG 22 FISHING REPOR

Her twin 3 year brothers arrive Friday and can’t wait to put them on fish. won’t be seriously fishing again until next week

aUG 18TH FISHING REPORT

When I got yo dock it was raining hard and I went for coffe abd it kept raining for next 2 hours so decided to stay tied up as once rain stopped wind came up. I actually needed the time to clean up the boat and striaghten things out. Spent a little time giving the Spots I put in pen yesterday a training lesson. May give it a try tomorrow evening but the tides won’t be to my liking for next 6-7 days and my grand kids are coming in from Milwaukee and promise the 3yr year old twin boys they would catch some fish so that will be the task next week

AUGUST 17TH FISHING REPORT

A beautiful day in paradise this morning and fish cooperated
5 bass between 25-27″ along with 3 legal fluke of 20,21 and 22″ Everything was caught on my well trained Spots
Bite doesn’t last long on the bass just top of the tide.These are all bright silver bass indicating they are coming in from the ocean looking around and than quickly leaving when tide turns out

AUG 16TH FISHING REPORT

IT was a beautiful morning when I left the dock again around 5am. Bucket was filled with well trained Spots hoping for a bass. Tide had 2 hours to come in and really nothing other than a Bluefish entertained me. But about 30 minutes befor full tide a 27″ bass came on the boat and than on top of tide another 27″ bass was caught follwed by a 20″ Fluke. Once tide started out everything look dead again but did manage to land one more 20″ fluke
Everything was caught on the well trained Spots
August trick seems to be all tide related but I would bet they can be caught regardless of tide in evening or at night .
Anytime you can get 27″ or better bass in August it is a good day
Today also was a milestone as I passed 10,000 miles on ,my GPS

AUG 15TH FISHING REPORT

Once again i left the dock under the cover of darkness. today I thought I would work the Bridge for trout on top of the tide but nothing but sea bass so headed towards where the Bass should be. First drift I lost a Spot but didn’t feel like a Bass bite so I went back and landed a 19″ fluke and than on next drifts lost 2 more Spots ,seems like the fluke could not get the Bass intended Spot in their mouth .Left this Spot and started another drift and hooked into a Bass only to lose it at the boat when it made a sharp turn.Went back for another drift as tide now was dead still and hooked into a decent Bass that made a good run.,finally got her to boat and she was a fat 30″ bass.Made a few more drifts and nothing.Once tide started moving it seems everything shut down.Went to the inlet and made 4 good drifts with only one short fluke. Decided to call it quits and headed home.Made one stop for some Spots and put 10 in the pen .!0 more that I need to train
Coming up on a New Moon so maybe something will happen the next couple of days IF weather cooperates
Anytime you get a 30″ bass in August it is aood day

AUG 14TH FISHING REPORT

ONCE AGAIN I POSTED WRONG DATE ON THE LAST REPORT
NOT 12TH BUT 14TH

AUG 12 FISHING REPORT

August is in full bloom with the waters filled with bait stealing little fish,Spots, sea bass, sea robins.sand perch.just to name a few. Went looking for bass but none were found. Nice morning so decided to look around and burn some gas catching a few Spots along the way to train
Someone asked about training Spots ,can’t really explain it ,I was taught many years ago by a Lenepe Indian chief and seems to work well when bass are around as they usually outfish the untrained Spots 2-1
Hopefully the weather will let me get one more early morning tide tomorrow
