Lynnhaven Report 10/7

Postby Coastalexplorer » Sat Oct 09, 2010 6:07 am

Played hookie and spent the morning plying the waters of the Lynnhaven. It wasn't a bonanza, but ended up with half a dozen specks and a black sea bass - a good day in my book and even more than expected given the large kill we had over the winter. Spunky little fish. Biggest was 15", but all over 12". Caught them in three different spots in the river so they are not just in one place. All caught on a 350 grain sinking line and a size 2 mummichog clouser. I tie it black over olive over chart. over white over orange with pearl flash. Fished the last hour of the incoming and first half of the outgoing. Caught fish on both flows.

I poked around a couple of new spots (for me) and hooked something that doubled the rod, but I horsed it trying to get it to the surface to see what it was and got unbuttoned. C'est la vie!

Purdy day to be on the water.

Fat healthy looking fish. Let's hope for a kinder winter this year so he can turn into a gator.
