Today is the day that barney's wife had arrange the trip for him as a birthday present. Bringing his freind Dana seemed the right thing to do. At Bearse's rip on the first drift we doubled up. Well, Dana got the bigger one of the two at 42 inches and around thirty pounds. Barneys fish was only a 37 incher at 22-23 pounds. Those poor guys ! The last week has been almost the same with many bass in the 29-34 inch range and an occasional 38 inchwer and up being caught. All of the fish are caught on light spinning gear and 14 pound test. The tuna are still in the area with small ones of 60 - 100 pounds smashing sand eels right in with the bass and blues. Cod are thick at 15 miles. Gillnetters still have many of the good spots covered for the season unfortunately.
