"Get Hooked on New York"

Offshore, deep water cranking and walking the dog Details
Name:Offshore, deep water cranking and walking the dog
Created By:shawneramone
Details:I hit up my favorite spot for a few hours. Got on the water around 5:30 pm and fished until 8:30 or so. The plan was to fish this little channel where I have always suspected the fish hang out but have only caught 1 or 2 fish there. I'm still getting comfortable with offshore fishing. I get to the spot and start catching perch right away on the Strike King KVD 5x. I tie on a rapala jointed crank in a perch pattern that dives to 14'. I'm in 12' throwing to about 6' and grinding that crank down the slope. BAM!! 1st fish goes 3.11. About 10 minutes later the crank gets slammed but the fish comes off right away. I throw the jig back to him and WHAMMY!! He eats it. He goes 4.2. I slide over to a nearby bank that has a steep drop and my crank gets slammed again. All of these fish fought hard but this one was making big runs. I thought I had at least a 5 pounder. When I get him close enough to net I see he's only got 1 treble in his mouth. Whew. He's my big fish of the day at 4.7. I caught 3 more fish on the dog but they were all dinks. I love when I have a plan and it works.
