It’s Time


Spring is here and the rumor is that its going to stop raining any day. We just came back from a successful Atlantic Salmon trip in New Brunswick. I’m finishing up a kitchen remodel and hope to uncover the boat Sunday. It should take about four days to get it ready for the water depending how fussy I get. Hopefully the next report will have a picture of a striper or two.

Getting closer

Spring is slowly starting to creep up on us. The fishing club that I belong to opened their season last week and its been pretty good so far. I picked up two new flylines for my 5 wt. They are Rio In Touch. One is their Gold Floater and the other is their sink tip. After trying both I can say they are the best freshwater lines that I’ve used. They shoot quickly and straight as an arrow. I also picked up a few of their saltwater lines. More testing to follow. I was surprised this year to see that Rio and Scientific Angler prices are running between $100 and $125 a line. Stay warm.

Happy New Year

Just a short winter update. Its getting near time to start thinking about the new season. The good news is that the rates will stay the same as last year. I’ve started tying some new flies for the spring. There were a lot of stripers around last fall and that bodes well for this year. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
