Summer Update

One of the 20's
It has been a long time since my last post. That is partly due to laziness on my part, but mostly due to the wind. There has only been a handful of nights since May that it was not blowing at least 10 knots out on the shoal. It does not take much wind to stir up 4 foot of water and the resulting chop. So most nights I have either thrown plastic, which is like kissing your sister, or just bagged it altogether. It has also been extremely humid, so it been hard to motivate myself.

The last two nights have actually been perfect. The wind finally died down and the humidity is gone for now. As far as fishing goes, it has been a ton of fun. Both nights I lost count early and had steady action all night on Papa Dogg. Every cast resulted in multiple blow ups. Most of the fish were in the 16 to 17 inch range, but I did manage a 20 each night. The good topwater nights are just getting started and I look forward to the mid 20's fish moving in. Both nights the tide did not reverse until 2 1/2 hours after low tide and the fish were hitting just north of the rock piles.
