Fished last night with Chris. We headed out for some late night flyfishing. Chris was rewarded for his lack of sleep with more blues than we could count. Every cast for a while. He also released three or four stripers before we called it a night.
Fished with Kevin yesterday morning. Kevin is new to flyfishing and wanted to get started. I gave him a crafting lesson on land first and then we headed out in the ocean for some on the water practice. The practice must have worked because on his first cast in the salt he hooked, fought and landed a fish on the fly! I wonder how many people can say that? Kevin went on to catch bluefish, sea bass, amberjacks, and even sea robins on the fly.

Fished today with George and Patty. George is always up for trying new things do we went looking for weakfish. This has been the year of the trout. We found them and had a great time. We caught 30 weakfish on Gulp shrimp and jigs. Nothing huge, but catching weakfish now is awesome. We moved on and caught more bluefish than we could count. It was a fun and productive day.

I took a ride yesterday to change things up. We targeted weakfish on jigs and we succeeded. Please keep in mind these fish were not big but weakfish are weakfish and catching any lately is very cool. We ended up releasing over fifteen trout plus a bunch of small seabass and croakers. Lots of fun on the light rods. I did not flyfish but I am positive they would have chewed on the fly.

Snuck out at sunset last night. We are at the beginning of the good evening tide cycle. There is bait everywhere in the back. The stripers are there and biting well. In short order we caught them and you could hear many more bass feeding in the stillness before sunset. Brady reeled in this nice striper after a little help with the hookup.

Fished today with Craig and Jack in the ocean. We caught an assortment of fish including amberjacks and bluefish. Jack also had a great fight today with a cow nosed ray that actually ate a jig. After a few minutes of chasing the ray down with the boat we released it.

Fished today with Rodney, Cody, Tanner, and Paul. We headed out sharking. It was a beautiful day but the lack of wind/drift hurt our production. We released three dusky sharks and I pulled the hook on a fourth. The fish were there but little or no drift makes things tough. (This was from last week. It reported for today. Not sure why)
