The past couple of weeks, we have been focused on hitting the saltwater, more because it is nice to fish over fish rather than swing through what appears to be empty water much of the time. Last week, 4 trips and 6 anglers saw/hooked/moved/landed 27 fish. Not bad considering most believe this time of year to be a waste of time out there. Weather has been perfect for it too, overcast, rain and virtually no wind.
Some food for thought.
All of these fish were taken on floating lines. You don’t need an intermediate line to fish out here and this time of year a stripping basket only makes you look like a rookie at times.
Every fish was within 30 feet of us standing in ankle to knee deep water.
On the weekend, perfect days both days and not another angler was seen.
