Interesting morning today to say the least. First of all, I had company over till 3 AM and getting up in the morning after few beers was……errr, challenging?
Yeah, lets call it that
By the time I got on the beach, all my boys were already in the water. Or at least I assumed they were because they were NOT returning texts. I kind of knew approximate area where they were but I was going to go waaaaay west BUT why are they not returning calls? They might be into fish?
I did find them 20 minutes later and about a hundred other guys lined up throwing bunker snags. At first i just watched, wishing I did not left my main camera home. Then I’ve seen few fish in 20b range came up so I ran to the water with my waterproof Lumix to take a shot of a guy unhooking a nice fish only to find that battery was 100% dead.
Not my day to be a cameraman I guess
So I suited up and cast a snag and cast and snag and cast and snag……except I could not snag a bunker if my life depended on it. Proficient at this, I am not. Finally after what it seem like an hour of casting I put a snag into one…now what? I kind of knew what am I supposed to do but I never practiced snag and drop before.just not my thing but these fish wanted no part of plugs.
Kind of reminded me of chunking but with live bait instead. I was petrified if I got a fish I might gut hook the darn thing, being a virgin at this.
Two minutes later I felt line come tight, I dropped the tip and set the hook.
And here is a result. The new VS VR proto did a splendid job if I might say as I know many of you will wonder…and the Century Noreaster too. Love that rod (thanks Lou for recommendation)
Included a little over/under and assist from Silver Fox. Good friends are hard to find. Hug yours today.
