8-24-12 Mexico Bay Solo Action

Recommended Posts

Got out around 10:30 for a couple of hours and blundered into a couple. My solo netting techniques have improved dramatically over last year! Mexico Bay looks pretty loaded up right now. Couple hits on rigger, one on thumper, one on a dipsy. Standard stuff but food for thought - try an 8-inch Hot Chip flasher with a 27 inch leader to your fly. Whatever color combos you like. Good mid day rig for me.

haha Dog right in there... Mine is the same way now... The first fish she didn't really figure it out, until I let her get a couple good licks of it. Ever since then when a fish is on she isn't gonna miss out on the action!

Nice fishing!

I think this was the first trip off-lead that she didn't end up in the drink! She is quite the water dog, likes to get right into the livewell. Hopefully she will be getting her third junior hunter leg tomorrow.

Nice job . One thing i noticed was no life jacket,which i am often guilty of it to. I was out solo once and almost went in the drink netting a fish. Got to thinking about if i would have fell in, all i could do was watch my boat drive away. Just something to think about.

great point here :yes:

I think some boats are safer to solo than others with no life jacket. I always where one solo , my boat is small and I am NOT a strong swimmer. :o ...especially netting big fish in a 16 tincan really need to be careful

I am always afraid of stumbling in back with the tighter width of my boat , I have seen vids of guys solo in bigger boats, tall walls surrounding...not sure how you could tumble out inless your reaching off balance or something.
