Default Things that make you wonder..

Tuesday morning I got up really early and launched my Mako on Mattawomen creek. The idea was to inspect and repair the trailer as I have a long tow this weekend. Also make sure things work on Mako. So while I am doing this perhaps I could get a few hours of fishing in if I start at dawn. Arrived at the ramp at dawn and all the boat parking was full except one..All Delaware tags. Parking lot was wet but no sign of the boats at the ramp. Walked back down to my tied up boat and was almost run over by a wild turkey. It happens right.
Launch and explore some new areas. Looks right for a spinnerbait, so for my first cast I run the bait over some submerged grass beds and bingo. This fish turns out to be a really good fight and after two good runs I see this is a big bass. Thinking catfish at first. Land him and photo him.

I fix my bait after it was bent into a pretzel and check it out and it runs right. For the next two and half hours I get zip... nada... and only a sniff on a popper. Fish are busting bait all around me but not hitting my lures.

I think the first cast should be way far away from possible fish catch next trip.. just to insure that never happens again..
