Fished this morning with my former supervisor when I was at fish and wildlife. We had a delightful morning but it was a little frustrating for the guide. I started out on breaking fish like I had yesterday but they were very skittish every time the boat got close, even drifting they went down. I was able to find good fishing on the top of a nearly dry clam flat. I can be quite brave about shallow water if the tide is coming in and it gets deeper by the minute. Fred’s best fish is in the picture. We each broke off a bigger fish as well.

Summer showers

After the wet cold spring we have been rewarded with a long stretch of warm settled weather, including some of the prettiest days you could ever ask for. This morning it is showering and the radar looks like we might have those most of the day. It will be interesting to see if today’s party cancels. They are driving down from Stonington for a striper fishing trip.


This morning I had a client call me at the ramp and tell me that the weather was too bad to go. We had been back and forth over a couple of days about times and number of participants. Where I was the rain was nearly over and it was barely blowing but where he was it was raining hard and blowing. Needless to say I had already spent most of effort, time and money to make his trip a reality so it was more than a lost morning.
