2012 Opener Comes to a Close
Here is how last night and this morning went. I arrived at Eddy's at 11:30PM and nobody was there fishing, so I took the North Jetty at the harbor mouth. Right away I had a hit that didn't hook up on an X-Rap. I cast for about an hour with nothing more. At 1:35AM I got this eye on a leech.
My next bite was a rock bass at 2AM
At 3AM the moon was up and I decided to throw raps again and on my second cast I landed this fish on a firetiger Husky Jerk. I thought maybe it was going to be awwwwn, but that was it.
At 4:40AM as the sun was starting to light the sky pretty good the bobber went down. I had a mishap on the hookset, but it held while I got my line unhooked from the dock and so I landed this leech fish.
That was it for the action. I left at a little after 5AM
I hit the GOMH at 6:30AM I got two toothy bullheads missing at least 3 others and I got 2 jumpin bullheads. I was done at 8AM
Overall I'm satisfied with how Opener went. I think the fish bit well, there just weren't a ton of them roaming around after the first night
