What bit YOU?!” The tails! 9/26 update

If you have been around the last ten days you are going to see the fare. Never let it be said our crew doesn’t know how to fish the Fall.

Our customers have always kept us untied be it NE or SW, sound side or to the sea! It’s time for things to be on the move.

It’s time for the bait to ball up, keep ahead of the food chain and avoid being in line on the bite!
You can’t beat the lack of the crowds, the open spaces with some of the most colorful sunrises and sunsets that don’t run hand in hand with the heat.

All our tackle is still in use but we now begin to wrap up some of the bottom bite near shore catching the ugly sticks bowed over as we count a few more over the washboards.

Chicks have ruled a bit this summer and I don’t think Meg is the only exception! It gives you a year to razz your family and friends!
Friends get you out in the boat and us out of the dock! And Ted keeps bringing his lucky hat…thank God…

The fat alberts still stream through in shots which means you can be surprised, waiting, watching, or listening for the zip of the line!

Mike and his crew fished us just this past Monday despite the wind! and being the only near shore out there, we circled, circled , circled!

Wendy snagged some Spanish for her fish tacos. The “Red Sky at morning” rang a bit true (yes this picture is not altered. It literally kept all of us snapping pics as the sun rose and the hues changed)

Gary kept up his claim to fame for the lunker for the trip and we all learned a lot along the way about who is fishing where, for what, and when.
That is the nice thing ; no presumption, just ask a few questions, and you can always learn a lot (we do).

Fall is officially here! Coldfronts, sunshine, sometimes backside sometimes oceanside. We fished all week and have tomorrow morning open.

Winds are forecasted to increase. So be in the know.

We thank everyone who called us to hook it up!
Thanks to all my crews who kept me on my toes this past ten days!

Winter Wash Counting Down

I know….snow, if your North…Rain and hey Miami hit 33F! Everyone has had a run of it this year. My friends in Cali say it has been one blaze after another from the Parks to Simi and friends in Brasil say they are beach bound because it is way too hot.

Rumor has it: As Adele says its just a rumor but as I stated on our facebook site supposed tunas along the stream moving south and rockfish in the same district…and that is a “no” …no no….we are getting ready for the season so if you have a boat best to go back, check the active fishing blogs and take the responsibility upon your shoulders.

You know the rules, the regs, and those be your shoulders men! lol and If I have not personally caught it, seen it, been told personally by someone I KNOW, I will post it as a rumor. period.

Meantime, big blues also working down in the deep and they are lunkers. Trawlers put em up the other day. The guys in the hold were not happy having them thrown down to pack snapping all the way.

I am hearing from my summer crew (awesome) and note the following; Grab your trip photos now from the archive as I will be cleaning it out for the new year! Everything else will remain in facebook Thanks!

Nature photos may be copied for personal pc use and remain the property of yours truly .

I hope everyone stays on the great track we were on last year for health, prosperity, and just plain normalcy.

As I see it , I will post it.
