Dino's Bass - July 10, 2007


    On Tuesday July 10 TS, PN, HE and CD left the dock in Huntington for a night of laughs, suds and hopefully a keeper bass or two. Once again we were fully prepared for the evening with plenty suds, sandwiches and 15 bunker.  With JH's GPS points to guide us we first put our lines in the water just north of buoy 13. After having a tough time setting the anchor we all agreed to give this spot a try for at least an hour and see what we got. HE was the first to get some action but unfortunately his line was cleaned before he was able to land the fish. Not a good sign but we kept at it. After about another 30-45 minutes of no fish we pulled up the anchor and set up SW of 13. Sitting in a ton of running water it was tough to feel bottom even though we all had 6 or  8 sinkers on our lines. It was quiet so I decided to put the rod down and have a bite. After a phenomenal Italian hero, I figured I would check my rod to see if there were any bites. As I was reeling in the rod almost flew out of my hand, this was first bass and it was a big one. Being the novice fisherman I am, I was taking all the advice I could get from my fellow NSAC'ers. With the running water I must have had 3/4 of my line in the water so I was reeling for about 10 mins. TS got a visual and it was a big one. I kept reeling and reeling and reeling until my forearms were on fire.  I got him to within 10 ft of the boat and he was gone. After some choice curse words form myself and the rest of the crew we got back to fishing. Then at about 11 pm the boat changed direction and things were a bit calmer. Getting low on bunker we decided to fish it out. TS got hit, HE got hit... so we knew there was something down there, it was only a matter of time before one of us got him in the boat. PN called it a night after getting his line cleaned the I took the last piece of bunker left on the boat, a head. I figured why not. TS called it a night. Just me and HE left...BOOM I get hit. I'm not letting this one get away. Been waiting for this for a long time. Got him close to the boat, TS gaffed him, what a fish, 35 inches, 20 lbs...a new NSAC record. Retribution, enough said.

 Much thanks to the crew...couldn't have done it without you guys.


Nice Bass


Can't fit it in the cooler

Looks like eating all of those bunker (pogie) sandwiches has finally paid off.
