Race Point - Saltwater Fishing Report
All I can say is that it was "AWESOME" fishing and probably the best I have seen in a while and that is tough for me to say because bass fishing has been hot.
Jordy and his crew, Mike, Sean and John were up in the Plymouth area to celebrate Sean's 40th birthday, a surprise party the night before. The guys were pumped for this trip. College buddies that have kept in touch over the years, getting out together for some great fishing. We left Brewers Marine around 2pm for our 4 hour bass trip. As we were heading out, the fog had moved back in again so we had about 1/2 mile visibility most of the way across the bay with a stiff east wind that kicked up 2-4' white capped seas. It was nice because the waves were spaced perfectly and in our face so once we got running up around 35mph, we were on top of the waves which made for a fairly smooth and dry ride.
As soon as we hit the spot where we had fished in the morning, things were much different. We were marking piles of fish on the Lowrance fish finder and all of them were in 30-40 ft of water. I told the guys, let's break out the light spinning tackle and try casting for these fish. I rigged 4 spinning rods and the guys started casting. Within minutes, Jordy and Sean hooked up. I love the sound of a spinning reel drag as line is flying off the real. Jordy and Sean put the first two fish in the box. We were not there 5 minutes and the action was hot. Next was John, then Jordy and Sean. Mike, for some reason was not hooking up. So we swapped out lures and he started making casts. Next thing I knew, Jordy was on, Sean was on and I hear Mike say, "what should I do?" We all looked and his rod was bent over hard, we all said "reel and fight the fish." We were using light spinning gear, rigged with 50lb power pro and the line was screaming off the real. He had a nice fish. I pulled Jordy and Sean's fish into the boat and by the time I was done with that, Mike's fish was up. 30lb fish easily. So I pulled it over the rail and the fish measured out at 43". A nice trophy fish. This went on for the first 2 hours of the trip!! That was, until Sean decided to drop my spinning reel handle over the side of the boat. Somehow, the reel handle had issues and it backed off the reel. I could tell Sean felt horrible as we watched the handle sink to the bottom and I just sat there laughing. I told him it was ok but now the problem was he had a fish on with lots of braided line out. We made it work and got the fish in the boat.
All I can say is this trip was a blast. The guys were awesome, every fish in the boat was big and honestly, 3 of the fish in the box were trophy fish at 37in+. Those 3 fish would have been top 10-20 placing fish in a lot of tournaments. We had our limit of 10 fish in less than 1 hour and then it was catch and release after that. This is the kind of fishing I love, fast, fun and exciting.
