Boy oh boy, if only 1 out of every 20 bass we marked during this trip bit we would have done incredibly well. Unfortunately the bass had a serious case of lock jaw. We had to work extremely hard for a few bass up to 28 pounds.
I always find it amazing how you can drag a perfectly presented offering right through a school of 10 – 100 bass without even a sniff. Nevertheless this phenomena happens around the Cape each and every summer.
Fortunately we did land some nice healthy fish, and I’d like to thank John C. for putting in a great effort.
Even though it’s only 12:15pm I am heading to bed. Been up for almost 24 hours! Hopefully the bass bite better this evening.
I’m also hoping that the wind backs off a bite and the T-storms move away. Unfortunately I have a feeling that wind and T-storms are in my future. This morning we narrowly missed getting stuck in a serious electrical storm.
Nevertheless we found a bunch of nice fish during this trip and I am eager to get back on them.

Good luck and catch ‘em up!
