That’s a wrap

Gail and I took a ride this past Friday to see what was left. Didn’t see any albies and the bass were laying low. Its the time of the year when its mostly blue sky and windy. Not the best combination for fishing. We did manage to get a few bass but they weren’t really in the mood. The boat was pulled out Friday afternoon and should be in hibernation mode shortly. We made some new friends this year and got to spend time with old friends and it doesn’t get much better than that. Stay safe this winter and we hope to see you in the spring.

Enough with the wind already!

Wednesday Mike came back with Mike Jr. and Brent for more fun in the wind. luckily the guys were using spin gear or else we would have stayed at the dock. We left early and the wind stayed down for the first ten minutes and then it came. We started off with some bass followed by blues and albies. It was pretty steady for about three hours and then it just stopped. After waiting and looking we figured the right move was to beat the tide change and head back. We ended with several albies and a good bunch of the other stuff. The water temps are still dropping and the fish are on the move. The good news is they are now serious about eating and that’s good for us. It looks like I’ll be in the water for one more week/

Mission accomplished

Today Ryan and mike came back on a quest to catch a striper. They had both caught albies before but Ryan has never caught a striper. They are hard to come by in Pittsburg for some reason. This was my lucky day because both guys decided to use spin gear. We started out but couldnot […]

Getting it done

Dr. Eric made the long ride from Arizona to come back for some stripers. We beat the sun again and found not too bad conditions. The weatherman said the breeze would pick up around noon today so I figured we had a good chance to at least get the morning in. We found the bass […]

The fat lady is clearing her throat

Sunday Gail and I took a leisurely trip out just to see what its like fishing in less than three foot seas. We found the bass pretty quickly and caught a bunch. There are more of them around than I’ve seen in a few years. I also picked up a chunky albie for good measure. […]

Fishing in the rain today

Saturday Carmine and Bob braved the lousy weather to try to catch an albie on a fly. We started out as the clouds were building. Bob started the day with a couple of stripers. Albies were showing but not eating. We waited for a break and made our move. We picked at some bass until […]

Worn out

I had the day off today so I thought it would be a good idea to see if I could still catch a fish or two. Left the dock and headed down to where the fish have been staying for the past week or so. After a bit I found some bass on the rocks […]

What wind

Today Jeff, Sam & Dave wanted to spend the day fishing for albies. The weatherman guessed that we would have a little wind from the NW today. Not great but doable. We left the dock and headed east. The tide was headed West with a strong push from the wind. Watch Hill was unfishable so […]

Striper Thumb Plus

Today Mark and Steve made the long and dangerous ride up Rt. 95 to try fishing on the north side of the sound. We headed out under heavy skies and a 20 mph wind. They said they could throw a fly and guess what they could. Shortly after we started fishing Mark put the first […]

Another triple

Saturday Richard came back for a shot at his first albie. We left early and headed out to join the masses. While no albies showed we picked up a bass and blue pretty quickly. Moving on we finally found some albies that were up down and gone. After a bit we found some and picked […]
