Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

J and I decided to get in on the action  inaction.
We met early after Fin crayfished out. Again! And headed south.

Nearing the destination we stopped for gas, snacks and more hydration.



Ammo.



Weapon. Old 8 wt. Old Medalist 1498.  V:;





We motored over to our first target area and saw lots of live and dead bugs on the water and quite a few flyers.
But no eaters. We saw one big cruising fish.
We rounded the point and we both saw a feeding common at the same time. I slapped it down and it refused it.
It turned away and circled. I slapped it down again and got a solid take. Game on!
I easily kept it out of the wood, then he turned all big boy on me and sounded. It was close to 5 minutes before we saw him again and a few more before J netted him.







J was up next.
He cast, I motored.
He cast, I motored.
He cast, I motored.
He.....well, you get the picture.
We saw zero more feeding fish. We saw a minimal number of cruisers.
J had a grassie nose his fly once. Excruciating.
Then, he finally had a strike!



We met up with Matt, Jeff and their buddy Aaron who were kayaking.
Good to see those two on the water.  :o
And they both scored. I'll let them post up their pics.  bd;0





We split up, fished on and continued to fail.
J and I finally threw in the towel and headed for the ramp shit show take out. Bunch of stupid humans.
We finally got loaded up and snacked on some pulled pork in the parking lot.
Hit the road afterwards. J drove, I continued to drink.
7 hours of driving, 1 carp, 1 bluegill.

Odd. What was the weather like? The salt was not pleasing as well.

Sunny, a little breezy. Lots of boat/jet ski/human traffic. I think it's on the downside. Like our Sunday last year. The switch got flipped. I cast for 45 minutes and watched Jabob after that. I drank a lot. I was happy.

Long friggin day for a bluegill.

Like Doug said it was a pretty slow day, with one exception. 

Bully, Aaron(not AK) and I had the kayak armada out on the water.  Bully got a small common early and I totally effed up the hook set on another.   About 30 minutes later a saw what looked like a tarpon inhaling cicadas.   First cast and it was on.  Pretty sweet to fight a fish like that in a kayak. After that. Nada.  We explored about as far as you can paddling an didn't see another fish.  I still walked away smiling.   















Yup, going fishing

Dougfish

This does my heart good.



You big, beautiful bastard.  d:b
