After a seemingly never ending 20 plus mph wind the entire month of July, we are finally getting some pretty days to chase fish. Not only is it nice to not have to pole into a wind tunnel, but it's great to look for fish that aren't in chocolate milk with whitecaps. It's been pretty normal fishing for August, these first two weeks. Scattered fish most days with the occasional surprise of a school of Reds. Stained water at low tide with some very clear water at high tide. Fish are eating anything flashy or splashy. Some days we've had to work for them (and there's nothing wrong with that) and some days it's come easy.
This is what can happen when we are blessed with a "cam slick" morning and some sunshine.
Wasting away again in Spartinaville. Our big flood tides this month were far from big or flooded. A little bit of a letdown. That SW wind decided to show up that week and knock the flood down by a half a foot. You know what they say when the flood falls apart and the fish aren't in the grass..."let them eat topwater".
Like most months, I've been blessed with some really great folks on my boat. Good company makes a few hours standing on a platform pushing a skiff pretty enjoyable. Thanks y'all!
This is how you should start every day!
Worth getting rained on for. We've had our fair shair of weather the last few weeks. We've gotten wet, the fish have gotten wet, well I guess the fish were already wet...nevermind.
Prettiest fish in the marsh, if you ask me.
As always a huge thank you to all of the anglers who have stepped on my skiff the last few weeks. You are the ones who make it possible for me to live an amazing life. Whether we struggled or crushed it, I have enjoyed every single trip with all of you.
If anyone wants to go fly fish some Reds, or watch them crush topwater plugs, give me a shout.
