I have noted before that the eagles in the Saint George spend a lot of time sitting on the various ledges. Frequently mixed right in with the gulls. I have also noted that when the stripers are chasing bait on the water surface. (a very exciting event I can assure you) that the gulls are there as soon as it starts but the eagles have been there for five minutes waiting for it to start.
Over the years I have become much more relaxed about the times to start my trips. A while back I wanted every client to be on the water with me at the best time of day for success. I have realized that most are after all on vacation and a start at 6 AM is not really a lot of fun.
Thunderstorms are not frequent in this part of the world but we do have them. I have stopped three trips so far this summer with a thunderstorm on the horizon. This afternoon started out nice enough even if a little windier than predicted. I was on the saltwater part of the Saint George and could clearly see this storm coming from a very long way off.
