Pohnpei Red Bass

Pohnpei Red Bass

A phone call at 0515 saying 'You Coming' can only mean one thing. Feet on deck ASAP and get the casting gear into the truck and head down to the Pohnpei Surf Club. The owner of the Surf Club and I headed out shortly before six for about a 90 minute session before a delayed start to work. The fish were not playing the game but we persisted. I eventually hooked a 5ft+ shark that took my popper right beside the boat and then chewed through my line - barstard thing - $80 Weazel popper gone. A very short time later we saw a bait ball being harassed by something and second cast I nailed this beauty. Sorry about the blood, I know better for photos but we were rushing the photo so that we could get in and go to work. Still it was a nice way to start the day.

Not my blood luckily. It had the front treble in pretty hard, looks worse than it actually was. Went like a small train, awesome fun. One crank of the handle and boom!!!!!
