11 Jun June 11, late nights of fussy fish
When it’s June and you come across schools of hundreds of bass in shallow water, it’s supposed to be the night you remember forever, memories that keep you warm nights in the winter. Last night was like that. Found and spooked hundreds and hundreds of fish in the river. Caught only 2. We did try lots of options to get them to eat, like live eels, sluggos. spooks, and needlefish. No takers. It was disheartening. We did pick up one 40″ fish to take the edge off the night, but overall pretty frustrating.
One of our friends, a guide by the name of Captain Barry Clemson has had success of late, even in the dreaded NW wind that so often locks up the bass. He sent us a few pictures. Nice fish!.
Frank Hallowell’s Fly caught bass that bottomed out my 30 lb. boga (Plum Island Sound).
Scott Tassinari’s 28 lb 45 inch bass caught on Tuesday’s northwest wind (Joppa)
