I soon came across a rocky drop off and decided to try for bass. I quickly hooked a nice largemouth on the replacement River2Sea jerkbait.
I caught a couple more bass when another float tuber came down and cut me off on the west side. I had no choice but to kick across to the other side, there were some more rocks over there that looked inviting anyway. I deployed the fly rod, and about halfway across the channel I hooked into a good rainbow. This one wasn't quite as big as the last, but it spun me around five times clockwise, and then two more times counterclockwise. I finally got the fish in my net, but it still managed to soak my camera while trying to snap a pic.
I scored a few more bass on the X-Rap along the shoreline when I noticed that the other fisherman had moved a few hundred yards to the west. I worked my way back to the rocks where I'd started catching bass and quickly caught another good fish on a tube snapped erratically off the bottom. Things were quiet for a bit, so I ditched the X-Rap for a River2Sea V-Joint Minnow. I quickly caught another bass and a trout. It was nearly time to leave, so I began trolling my way back to the car. I picked up a few more small rainbows, and then I hooked into something big. Or so I thought. Eventually the fish came into view, and it was another smaller fish. Then I noticed a flash underneath the fish and I realized I had a fish on each fly. Somehow I was able to land both of them.
The old guys were gone now and I managed a few more small bass and trout on the V-Joint from the bay they'd been fishing before I had to leave.
Final Tally: 13 Rainbow Trout, 10 Largemouth Bass
Year Tally: 256 Fish
