We started the nights fishing around 1030 PM. It was slow. Tide was incoming. It was a 3 AM high tide. Dan got the first fish of the night a 25".
Then Dan caught the second fish of the night, a 46".
When the tide came to the top we tried downtown Newburyport. First drift and the bluefish cleaned us up. We got out of there quick. We decided to go back to the flats.
Dan caught another 28". I was kinda bumming. I had had some bites, even a nice fish on for a while before the circle hook let go. But then it was my turn. 36"
Then it was Dan's turn again. Another 46". They looked like twins in the bottom of the boat.
Just as it was getting light in the east I hooked up for the last fish of the night a 37"
Daybreak on Joppa Flats.
We ended our trip back at Surfland. Dan's bass weighed in at 34 pounds apiece.
Best picture on the board was a 32.5 pound fish Dan's friend had caught a week ago. Dan was top dog on the picture board when we left.
Thanks for the invite Dan. I had a blast.
