The Big Sweep

The Big Sweep, originally uploaded by FishingFromLand.
Headed to the beach friday night, after a long week. Brought my 9 footer and was hoping for a relaxing evening throwing bombers and such after dark. The ocean had other plans, none of which I was prepared for. Headed home and went out instead.

Whitewater, originally uploaded by FishingFromLand.
Hit the beach for a couple hours Friday morning. I've been having tons more confidence fishing at night lately, but some of the books say, if a nor'easter blows in, daytime action can be had. Lotsa whitewater, a little dirtier than I would've liked. Worked on my bucktail technique. Caught one tiny bass, and missed another. It's amazing a little 14" striper is cruising around feeding in that washing machine, guess it would be a cakewalk for a larger fish.

Cast straight, land quickly and don't mug anyone.

Striper on a needle

Bass on a yellow needle, originally uploaded by FishingFromLand.
So in our first installment, I put up some plug kits I've recently completed. Well I'm happy to say, that at 4:15am this morning, a feisty 25" bass nailed the yellow/black needlefish, in some nice whitewater swell, and then was gently released back into the sea. Crawlingly slow retrieve, with a little twitch now and again-just like they say in the manual. Full moon night just after the clouds darkened things up a bit, before the fog rolled in. On that note, it was a spectacle fishing under the full moon last night, you could almost read by it. Really bright and almost eerie light.
