Sea Bass 8/7/21
Found calm seas & an artistic majesty painted upon eastern skies while clearing the inlet this morning. A bit late for a ‘sun up’ snap; was visually gripping nonetheless ..and a precursor to afternoon downpours.
Dropped 5 markers for reef sponsors – polyballs we’ve found over the years weighted with reef blocks on hemp rope to mark the outside boundaries of a reef. August is when our newest users venture furthest. Any mahi found using these markers should be considered unauthorized and be removed.
Sea bass acted summer-like, August-like really, before coming on a bit better later in the day.
Kephart Pryor from Edgewood boxed the first limit. Nico & Sam would follow. Zig and a few others got hung at 14 and were glad of it. Mate Vic thinks there were at least 4 other sea bass that would have won the pool ..but you gotta play to win — Sam S from Dover pocketed the cash.
Weather was finest kind until the rains came. Nice fishing for those who worked em.
