That's not fair. Catching fish AND finding tackle!

Moco: Outfront East wind: Last two hours of low tide: I was on the fly and gave it a shot with the cloud cover, but no gamefish or bait observed.

Out yesterday morning for the middle of the outgoing tide in the river. I got skunked and my buddy got 2 around 24-26?. Went to the hook after that to scout the low tide. Some very nice structure out front all over the place so I made a few casts for an hour and caught 3 micro bass between maybe 8?-16? I thought a bunker got snagged on my line it was so small. Went back to the river this morning at the top of the tide and caught one at 31? and dropped what felt like a nicer one and missed one. Water felt a little cooler than last week.

Found a few smallish blues this morning. Bass, drum and blues are around the island but was tough finding them for me.


This guy said "huh? You actually fish???
