This morning was absolutely epic!
I had the Adirondack crew of Dave, Robert and newcomer Andy with me today. Dave and Robert were part of last year’s incredible September bite. They were not expecting today’s fishing to equate to last year’s trip, but I’m happy to say that today may have actually surpassed last September’s incredible bite.
We hit the water at 3:30AM and on Andy’s first ever cast on Cape Cod he hooked up with a fat 25 pounder. What a start!
The day only improved as the sun poked its head above the horizon. We found bass in just about every spot we ventured into. Fortunately for the guys the bass were on the feed this morning and were very aggressive.
These were seriously big schools of very aggressive bass which is ideal for pitching live bait with light spinning setups. We could have trolled tubes but I figured we might as well take advantage of the situation and stick with the light tackle.[slideshow id=17]
There were a few cows mixed into the masses today. I know of at least one 50 pounder that was caught.
We did not catch any 50′s today but we did manage at least 3 bass that were over 40 pounds. All in all the final tally was around 30 -40 bass between 15 and 43 pounds.
The guys were even nice enough to let me catch a fish or two!
Hopefully the solid action will continue throughout this coming week. Based on what I’m seeing I think it will – knock on wood.
