Back in the bay today. Caught the top of the incoming and the turn. Soaked a few worms.
Apparently, all the fish got the memo, and were practicing social distancing. Nada.

Congrats to all you kayakers, seen a lot of smiles coming in this morning. If I didn?t almost die out there one year, I still might have mine. Be safe, be smart, in that cold water.

In the next few days I'm thinking to drive down to the Seaside area.
I can't do it late in the day or evening, which would be optimal, but would like your collective ideas about my chances of doing any good in the bay off sodbanks, off the beach, or hiking to the inlet. Any thoughts? I might even kill a few bloodworms if you think it worth the investment.
