They are still here

I took a solo trip this morning to check the outgoing tide. I only fished one spot and it was a different one from last time. The fish were scattered but hungry. I caught a handful up to 10 lbs. and dropped as many. Gail wanted to know what was wrong with my hooks. Angler […]

Spring Fever

Friday part two

When Gail made her “Good Luck” call this morning I told her to get the flyrods and meet me at the dock when the first trip ended. We headed out and for the next four hours we had a pretty steady bite. Not as good as earlier but still pretty awesome. We caught bass up […]

Nice day for a boat ride

We don’t always fish on a fall weekend but the weather was too good to stay home. We left early and found a nice school of bass on the rocks so we stopped for a half hour and landed a dozen or so schoolies. We got a tip that the albie fishing in Montauk was […]
