well you would have bitten her too, had she stepped on your back when you were laying there sunning yourself


seriously glad she's ok!

I might try one more shot for pelagics tomorrow at the ***** Inlet.
I'd consider walking out to the Hook, but I hate the idea of walking that far when I have to be back picking up kids from cross country practice at 5:00.
Maybe it'll be easier when they're grown up and I'm retired.
… but by then the politicians will probably have the whole shooting match Fubared.

Moco Out front midday to late afternoon. West wind thigh high swell with a north to south current.Peanuts, rain fish spearing, and Mullet in the trough. Observed numerous needle fish for the first time this year.Many large snappers doing their thing. A quick dozen fat 17 inch short flat ones all still swimming. A good day on the beach with many Albert fans seeking action, but ending up getting exercise.

I had more time when the kids were that age than now, go figure (not retired but still)


Just enjoy having the energy to push yourself on the edges of time and availability and do what you can!

Brigantine: 4:30 to 7... SE wind (go figure) with no swell but a 3 foot wind chop. Water was clean and green, very little weed.

Was doing a relaxing bait fishing thing with my wife for a few hours, managed a bluefish on frozen mullet on a rod which I had a local guy redo for me. This is a fiberglass lami blank that was my father in law's favorite rod, 9'6". Weird fishing as being fiberglass, this is super flexible and has a totally different feel than any current production rod. Have a Penn 9M reel on it with 20lb mono. Still have my good conventional casting "thumb" as this reel has no brake of any kind. If you don't thumb then you tangle on the cast

Anyhow, had to leave around 7, there were no kingfish in the surf (the storm blew them out apparently), so no takers on bloodworm, no takers on the bluefish head (thought a brown shark might still be cruising the shallows but guess they moved out deeper with the kingfish, just a thought).

Finally did a "duh" and thought to check the shallow surf and downbeach finally caught the tell tale ripples, ran and got my castnet and voila... there was bait.

But, not mullet on the cast, what seem to be baby pompano! Then another cast did, in fact get a few mullet.

Unfortunately, while I was as "prepared" as yarddog with rigs (including a float rig), I had an impatient guest with me, so I didn't get the chance to liveline anything, but hopefully will get out before the 21st to give it another shot. There have got to be some doormats hanging somewhere with these prime baits running the shallows.

The moon and the stars are beginning to line up! Great set up with the lami and and 9M.
I did my "scouting trip", beaching and biking with my better half on Saturday. She clears me for takeoff on my fishing passion. Happy wife happy life!

No pelagic joy this morning / early PM. The water looked like it should be more fishy as I left and I saw what looked like a few smallish Spanish skipping through the wave troughs with the accelerating incoming tide. I'll bet the full high tide will see some good action this evening, but not for me.

Out front late afternoon. East wind with an incoming tide. I was on the fly, but could not raise a fish. All the swim bait from yesterday was not visible tonight. Met up with Bayyaker and had to do the irish goodbye as my phone battery went out! Hope he had better results

I am reminded of Irish Alzheimers:


It's where you forget everything except your grudges.


(That's also from the side of the Irish temperament without the Leprechauns.)
