Tune into the Bayman Outfitters if you do not get their fishing report online. You are not going to believe this is happening. Capt. Dave will fill you in. I think the ice braker may have gone by already! Can you say foot long herring patterns? If you can't, you had better get tying!!!!!! In Dave's case, timing could not have been better.

Phil,

I think the title of the report is "April Fools Day Bass" for a reason. I wouldn't go running out for those herring patterns just yet.

Phil,
If it makes you feel any better there are herring in the runs but the only thing chasing them right not are marine mamals.

Excellent dry run though - You did the right thing posting here this time. Next time you hear of big fish in my area just call my cell and we'll check the authenticity of the report for a day, :wink: maybe a week before passing it on to the rest of the world.

Yup! The ball, I mean Ice Breaker, is on for sure! Gheeez, am I gullable! On another note, I built a seven weight for the twinkies. Looking forward to testing it out.

Forgive yourself............all of us are just happy it wasn't us! :)

For sure Ron. Of all the people I've fished with over the last year, the one with you was one of my favorites. De Ja Vous this spring? Let's make it a plan. When was that last year? Late may? Got a friend from Montana coming end of May just for the striper fishing.

That was quite the 2 hours!!! :) I believe that we could have taken the pull tab off our zippers and caught fish. I can still see the hoards of sand eels trapped and the fish having a "shark attack" feeding frenzy. I'm not sure we will ever see that again. By the way Phil, that was 2 years ago. Was something I too, will always remember. Let's hope that your buddy has the same experience. Let's plan on the tag team approach again :-)
