On a recent family fishing trip the catching was pretty slow. They enjoyed a trip last summer where it seemed like every fish in the pond was eager to get on the end of one their lines. Not so this day. Yes they caught more than a few fish but they came slowly.
Leave them there! That is the tagline from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife about young animals in the spring. To make that point. This morning I was on my way to a boat launch and saw a deer just off of the side of the road. She clearly did not want to leave as I approached and when she did leave did not go far. A couple of easy hops into the woods.
The tide was very early this morning. It was not dark when I pushed the boat off of the trailer but only because it was June. 4:45 Am and only 43 degrees with a rising easterly wind. The plan was to do a quick look around for any stripers that might be in the river.
