I am quite sure that there are bass fisherman not too happy with me right now. Some of them are seeking a late season charter with their favorite group of folks, and I am being wishy-washy about booking a date. I get that way at this time of year because that is when the Bluefin start biting in earnest. It is either photoperiodism or water temperature related, but when they bite, its the most exiting thing I have ever done, except bowhunting. Soooooo, if I seem a little hesitant to book a date to go on a bass charter its because I would rather be doing battle with a 600 pound Bluefin. The fish are very sporadic so far this year, with a decent bite going on one day, perhaps in the morning, but then nothing on the next morning or that afternoon. It has some of the very best tuna fishermen perplexed, frustrated, and maybe near suicidal. I just returned from a three day trip on the grounds as crew on another man's much larger boat, where we lost the first three fish we hooked, before we finally got one. The next morning we again got lucky and caught another on a morning when only three fish were caught in the whole fleet. As frustrating and stressful as it is, I cant wait to get out there again, and I will be heading out as soon as the weather allows.
