No clients today. Instead I made a trip downriver hoping to purchase a few lobsters for supper and spend a little time fishing. As soon as I arrived in Thomaston Harbor it was clear that no one would be hauling traps today. Blowing pretty hard out of the southwest with a falling tide. A recipe for rough sea conditions in the Saint George. The sky this morning tells the entire story.
I marvel every year at how September in Maine is so underutilized. The weather is near perfect temperatures warm but not hot, usually dry with clear blue skies. Fishing this morning was delightful actually caught so many stripers between 24 and 28 inches that my arm hurt when I quit. One of these fish is shown in the photograph but I have to apologize for the quality.
This past season was my busiest ever! I must apologize to the folks who could not get the trip that they had in mind, the folks that I still owe thank you notes to and the firewood that is still not stacked for the coming season.
