You know it's fall when you wear long-sleeve shirts...
but fish bare-footed!
All the better to feel the fly line underfoot my pretties!
The tide was going out. I fished two marsh cuts and caught fish at both. At the first, I probably caught a dozen on a steady pick. A sinking line and a mummichog clouser were the ticket.
I also caught this scrappy striper dink.
Leaving the first spot, I was content, but wanted to run the engine a little more so I motored over to another favorite spot and, although the river was packed, this spot was wide open. I anchored up and started catching fish almost immediately. These specks were a little bigger, perhaps 16", and had a little girth to them. Fun!
After a few "one more cast"s I finally started up the Yamaha and headed for the barn. It was a beautiful, brisk October day. The specks were plentiful, the sun was shining, and the boat ran good. Perfection.
I have some underwater video I haven't looked at yet. Stay tuned...
