Detour for a Quick Meat Run on the Classic , November 12, 2018

Nov 12, 2018

Kevin and I made a quick run out to get some sea bass meat today . We left the dock very very late (better late then never πŸ™‚ ) . It was such a rough ride out that we could not contemplate going where we originally wanted to fish , probably also not a good idea with obligations at 6 pm . We decided to instead made a quick stop to a different and much closer β€œvenue” honey hole . The good news is that despite the sudden detour, we still managed a 2 person limit in just about an hour and were heading  back home by 1 pm . Because we left to head back so early, we totally avoided the storm predicted to hit at 3 pm (which is always a plus.πŸ˜€)

I did get a surprise visit by yes you guessed it,  β€œMr. Feisty”  black drum , who put my already injured left wrist to the test, but despite some wrist discomfort during the fight and after,  I still think I passed the test, ( see photo ) ha πŸ™‚ We used cut bait today with 5/0 hooks on double dropper loop sea bass rigs.  and I also did some jigging today. Hope Everyone is staying warm and dry tonight. I also wish to extend a special thank you to all the veterans out there , this nation would not be as great as it is without your incredible sacrifices and service to our beautiful country . Thank you ! & Happy Veterans Day.
