Default First striper of 2006....

2005 was a good year (until the fall run) hopefully everyone did well ( some of you lucky stiffs are still fishing and will have bass available all winter)
so here's the question for us to ponder for NEXT season:

When will you catch it?

where will you catch it (very general area)

what will you catch it on


Here's my prediction for myself:

First bass will be caught on the 9th of May, it will be a midget about 10-12"

It will be caught in the merrimack river

and I will get it on a white 3/4 oz bucktail jig (just like I do every year)

My prediction:

Caught on May 16
Caught in the Saco River
the fish will be 16-18"
Caught on a tube n'worm.

That's only if I get my boat in the water on-time next year.

You'll love this then. :) :) :) :) :) :)
Easter Sunday afternoon April 11, 2004 was possibly one of the greatest days ever. Huge schools of big bunker, toss out a head, wait 30 seconds and reel in a high teens bass.
The bait was so thick you couldn't liveline, the bunker were tangling in the line. You couldn't make a cast with the bait - just a short toss or they'd tangle.
Got my first plug bass of the year that day but they really didn't want wood and I had to work at it. Pulling in a tangled bunker ever few casts didn't help.

late april, cape area, 30lb+......if not late may/early june, merrimack/plum, 30lb+...on whatever is in the bait bucket or in the plug bag.......oh i am sorry i was daydreaming again, what was the question? but seriously i hope for a strong season in 06, i have suffered enough the past few years and i have been reading as many posts from roccus as i can find, from what i can gather we fish the same areas, however hes the one who catches bigger fish. my day will come...a cow will come home in 06.

My first keeper will be caught from May 5th to May 12th...
I will catch this one trolling the lobster trap areas near the island
I will already have had 30 days of schoolie bass starting with hold over bass and small bass working the mill gut.

So lets say schoolies April 15th and 32" plus bass May 15th
That is to say we have another year like this past season

I was talking keeper bass min 28" by the way. We can catch 18" to 20" rat bass all winter long so long as it doesn't get TOO cold.
