ASS Fly. In no time I was on fish and managed a few near the bridge. Originally designed for largemouth I wanted for the longest time try this fly out in the bay and it proved its worth.
While fishing this section Chul managed a mystery fish that took him to the backing (at about 3:03 on the video). Having not seen the fish since it broke of we can only speculate what it was. Initially we thought perhaps a bonefish, a jack crevalle, maybe a big spotfin croaker or a white seabass. Afterwards I called Ed to see what he thought given the way it fought, first it bulldogged than ripped line out and once it was put under pressure it bulldogged again. Since it didn't dive during the run and just took line straight, Ed theorized it was probable a white seabass. We'll never know. It would have been nice to have at least seen that fish. After Chul could calm his nerves and a quick smoke, we continued fishing and managed a few more spotted bay bass. None of any significant size or numbers. While it was not a stellar day for the bay it wasn't bad. But we had to earn our fish this day.
The two loverboys on the banana boat managed a few fish a piece on their new fly rods with each adding some new species to his fish list, spotted bay and sand bass for Joseph and a lizardfish for Tuck.
