City Island 8/4/17
« on: August 05, 2017, 09:35:02 PM »
Harry and me launched at 6:30 AM.  We ran up to the ledge above 81 and started throwing white grubs on a spinner.  We fished the east side for about 20 minutes with Harry changing lures often with no strikes for either of us, so I motored about half way across and started again.  We worked our way across the ledge skirting around a couple other boats that had parked on the ledge. We had a slow pick of small ones so we started drifting down toward 81 catching two or three two pounders and some small ones.  We decided to head for the ripples at Riverfront Plaza Apts.  We just about got started there when the thunder and lightening started to the southwest.  I decided too late to head back to the launch and in no time at all we were soaked to our underwear.  Score on the day was eleven for me and Harry lost track but I think he had about sixteen.  The one below weighed 2.10 and Harry's biggest was 1.98 but I accidentally deleted the pic.

The older I get, the better I used to be.

Glad you guys were successful. I got 15 minutes in Friday night, before the lightning started. My daughter, who is 9, frightend her. So I pulled early and headed home. But I did manage to land 4 smaller ones 10-12". Went back Saturday morning, and the water was coffee colored. but did manage a 20-22" chanel cat[imghttp://imgur.com/eqMNXqb]http://[/img].
