Stood up

It happens once or twice a season. Someone makes a reservation and then does not show up. Today is one of those days for me. It was to be the first nature watching trip of the summer. Luckily I have a ton of work that needs to be done in the office and around the house. Still; I always wonder what the person that asked me to be ready for them and then simply does not show up is thinking, do they think that I do not notice that they are not here? The answer is to make sure that I get a deposit but most of my clients become friends and I am sometimes lulled by that friendship.

Late morning blitz

I fished this morning with two former colleagues at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. We started early and I expected to be off of the water no later than 10. The fishing was very slow we had a three fish to the boat and several bites that were not hooked up. I headed toward the harbor and made one last drift on a favorite ledge. At the end of the drift I looked down river and the birds were going crazy over fish breaking everywhere. We quickly moved to the breaking fish and all had on nice fish. After landing a few fish it was over as quickly as it started.


Striper fishing continues to hold up very well and the size of fish continues to get bigger. The fishing is so good that I have been doing family fishing trips on the salt water for stripers instead of perch as I normally so. One change that I have noticed is that the seals have left the harbor; I assume that the increase in boat activity is the reason as there still seems to be plenty for them to eat.
