We fished hard the first day with both of us catching double digit numbers of bass. Dave caught one 0ver 18" and I had three this day that were over 5lbs apiece.
I caught a few fish on a PopR during the three days but most of my fish came on a Texas Rig. No luck for me with the jig so it stayed in the rod holder most of the time.
Weather was not too bad the first night, it did get a little cold during the night but not bad.
Woke up early on day two and caught some nice bass around the island in some deep holes. We fished for a little bit then we made a long paddle to go meet the rest of the party that would be joining us for the rest of the trip. This is where the wind really started blowing hard and created some nice whitecaps to paddle through.
Met up with Larry Longshadows and his brother Johnny and Dave's friend Jay and away we went again paddling to some deeper water in pursuit of fish.
The fishing was good again as the Texas rig was tearing them up. We made it to the big island with enough daylight to gather wood and get the tents set up. The evening was the highlight of the trip as after dinner the spirits were flowing and between the stories and Larry singing the song to us that he finally finished we probably stayed up way too late.
Once again the wind was a factor as we worked our way back to the takeout.
Thanks to my fishing friends for another great trip and Happy New Years to all.
