Yesterday morning the fishing was not as good as the last few. In fact I never like the few days after a full moon. My current guess is that the big range of tide that we have around the moon puts a lot of sediment in the water and puts fish off some. Might be true, most likely is not, but I need a theory.
Today I fished with a friend from Maryland and his family. He and I fished together until 10 Am and then were joined by his wife daughter and son. The fishing first thing was excellent breaking fish everywhere and we caught a bunch. My only regret was leader material that broke on a couple of big fish. It would have been nice if he had landed a great big fish. After all Maryland gives most of these stripers there start in life it seems only fitting that someone from their home state should get their very best showing.
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.
