|Details:||Woke at 3am, grabed a coffee and hit 495S. From Taunton to Yarmouthport is about an hour and 15 minute ride, if I make the jump to Hyper Space my Infiniti G35x will carry me there in around 45 minutes, this morning I chose to keep it under 145mph.
The whole ride all I thought about was yesterdays 55 fish day and how I wish todays trip would be the same.
We started at Shubael Pond, nice place, a few peices of shoreline structure but for the most part is a kettle pond, caught 1 which I swore was a monster until he revealed himself....a 2lber with all 6 of the Sexy Shad Square Bill's Hook in his back, hate foul hooked fish!!
So off to Spectacle we go, never been here before, same as yesterday, weather..overcast raining, same as yesterday, soft plastics......DIFFERENT FROM YESTERDAY, couldnt make it to BPS last night before they closed to re-up on my favorite "Havoc Pit Boss" so right out the gate my confidence is a little low, I dont know if you can identify but when that flippin stick is in my hand, and she's rigged with my go to bait and color its pretty much a wrap.
Fished for about 3 hours caught 1 perch ( I think the crankbait was bigger than him) motoring back to the launch site I pick up the crankbait rod and start throwing casts into the middle of nowhere, 1,2,3.....think I threw around a dozen when my buddy says "come on I gotta get back home to let the dogs out" my response " Ok Last Cast, God ( I said looking upward and I really was) can I just get one nice thats it just one."
If my buddy wasnt there to see it this would have just been another fishing story but it really took place....I whipped that Strike King Sexy Shad Deep Diver about a football field with my 7ft 11 in Shimano Crucial Crankbait Rod it landed in about 25 ft of water, boat was up in about 10, it wasnt about 15 turns of the handle when this beauty knocked the s**t out of it.
In typical addict form after the picture was taken I said "just one more" after about 20 more my buddy said we really need to go, lol
The rest my friends in history
