Yes, you heard me right, I used bait. I worked them around for 2+ hours without a bite. I saw Kurt (club member) and we chatted some. I was less than 50 yards behind him when he got a BIG bite. He landed it in much excitement and later at Captains Quarters I found out it went 37.25" and 19+ lbs. Nice! That could have been mine if he only moved over a little. Darn.
By now it was high sun and I yanked the bait when I reached the creek mouth and started trolling cranks again. I went back and out Becky again with no bites. I went past the condos, across the other side, back again to the long point from the island, around the creek mouths, here and there, over and yon, but still didn't see any more fish. I checked Coast Guard point on the way back and saw nothing shallow or deep. I also checked out work on the new boat ramp there and I'm not impressed. It won't be a back-up ramp but a drive around like the State Park.
So that's it. Don't know when I'll get out again but it better be soon.
