October 13, Rewards for the persistent

From 7 to 10 am there was a blitz between markers 1.2 and 1.8. large bass chasing adult menhaden 12-14” and tinker mackerel. One fisherman live-lining a bunker hooked into a fish that broke 50lb braid. A 26lb fish was landed and numerous 30-36” fish were taking.

.

Not much action today thought the gannets were diving like crazy out front and around the sandbar just a little while ago. Couldn’t see anything busting water though.

.

Haden was home this weekend. Was up early today and out and about the island and caught nothing. Tommy Hogan is around, but I haven’t heard much from him. Think he caught a 28” this morning, but don’t remember, so don’t quote me. Officer James Cowig is also out this afternoon. Maybe he will have a good report!!

.

Another guy was in this afternoon and reported tuna about a mile right off the beach, but couldn’t get them to bite.

.

Although lots of locals are bemoaning the lack of fish around this Fall, there still are a few to be found, and if you’re skilled enough, big ones too. Here are a couple from this past week we weighed in at the shop:
