Double slam

Gail and I wanted to get out before this weeks nor’easter hits so we got up early and headed out. We stopped at my favorite shallow water bass spot for a bunch of stripers. The next stop produced more bass, bluefish several bonito and we topped that off with a handful of albies. There were […]

Gail and I actually got up early today to have some fun on the water. We stopped at my favorite bass spots for some shallow water action. The bass were right where we left them. After a bit we got a call from a friend and we switched to albie mode. They were eating flies […]

Slammed again

Today I was able to spend the morning with longtime friend and client Dr. Jeff. We left the dock in less than favorable conditions. Our first stop and Jeff’s first cast produced a feisty bass. Unfortunately The tide was against a stiff breeze so we couldn’t stay there comfortably. A short time later the bonito […]
