OK. I know it has been a while since I last posted, but it has truly been hectic. I have to divide my time between the fun stuff (fishing and beer) and the whole making money to live thing.
First and foremost, if you are a fisherman, GET OUT THERE! This is by far the best time of the year to fish. Rockfish, Bluefish, Speckled Sea Trout, and Red Drum are preparing themselves for winter by chasing and consuming large quantities of baitfish in the shallows. These conditions won’t last much longer, as the water temperatures continue to fall.
I had a spectacular time on the Honga River yesterday. Launched at 11 am and fished the grass beds on an incoming tide. Landed 10 fish and kept 4, one of which was a 24 incher. I was casting with an ultralight rod and 10# mono. Great fun.
