A pot of fish under the rainbow

Will came back again and brought Steve with him. We left the dock in pretty thick fog in search of the ever selective albie. After a bit of a run I saw the fog rainbow and knew there must be a pot of fish under it. Well it was close anyway. We started on some […]

Nice day for a boat ride

Today brought Greg and Will out for a two day trip. Since the storm we have found fish that would not eat. Today they were a bit hungrier. We found albies early and we did get a couple top eat a fly. The problem was in keeping them connected. We played with more finicky fish […]

Yesterday was good and today was better!!

Monday morning brought Lowell, Dan and their dad Charlie out for the morning. We left for the spot that last held good numbers of bluefish. The guys all warmed up on very cooperative blues with Charlie landing the largest. It was time to start our search for the newly arrived albies. About that time we […]

This is the report that you have been waiting for.

We have been busy the past couple of weeks. Mostly looking for bonito in between a few trips. The bones have been scarce and have not stayed in one place long enough to get a good shot at them. The trips that we have had were tough with only bluefish to show for our efforts. […]

Mixed Bag

Wednesday morning Gail and I left in the fog in search of a little bit of everything. The first stop brought some schoolie bass. There were a few schools on top. Right now we have loads of big sand eels and they are keeping the fish happy. We left for some fluke and we did […]

Still at it.

We have been pretty busy lately doing non fishing stuff but we have managed to get out every now and then. The fishing is starting to improve with a large increase in the sand eel population. We have found fish on top without a lot of pressure on them. The river temps are high enough […]

The next generation

 Monday morning brought Ranny Jr. down to the dock for his first trip with me. I have been fishing his father for more than 20 years and now the next generation has arrived. What does this all mean ? The guide is getting really old. Well we left early to catch the end of the […]

Thanks for the call

 Thursday brought Pat and Louie down to the dock before the sun showed up. Because of the tides I wanted an early start. Shortly after we arrived Pat hooked and land a nice schoolie. Its good to get the first fish on board but not necessarily so early in the trip. The tide was right […]
