Summer Pattern

The last 4 or 5 days have been virtually unfishable. Not only has it been cold and rainy, but the winds on the bay have been consistently 20-30 knots. Today looked promising, so John and I agreed to meet at the boat at 4.30. After a few delays we headed out to the shoal. It was 70 and sunny, but the winds were still very high. The winds were from the west, which made for a difficult anchoring. The tide was coming in and the boat was pointing towards the eastern shore. There were a record 7 tankers anchored up and all pointing straight at us...a very strange sight on the bay. Fishing was steady and we each picked up 5 fish from 18-22. All of the fish appeared to be residents. All ten fish were caught on a white twisty on 1/4 ounce lead head. No topwater although we gave it our best.
